This news item certainly brightened my afternoon; the most colorful character from Disney • Pixar’s Up! has found a new home: Kevin!

Greetings, fellow Wilderness Explorers. I’m writing with news from a recent expedition to South America. We’ve been tracking the large and exotic bird known as “Kevin” – you might remember her from the Disney • Pixar film “Up!” – and she appears to be migrating north from Paradise Falls, headed in the direction of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Experts anticipate Kevin will arrive at the park sometime next month. Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug are also at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, greeting guests and discovering various species of birds from around the world in the show “UP! A Great Bird Adventure.”
As someone who reluctantly heads to Disney’s Animal Kingdom with the fam — at least in part due to my ingrained, irrational belief that there’s less family-fare there (as opposed to the more consistent offerings I’ve found in the other three parks over the years) — I am really excited for this new character experience.
I love Up! and so do my children.
Kevin is a favorite, as well. No doubt, if there is a chance to get a photo pass pic with the fantastic bird, all of us will line up.
But what do you think of Kevin’s inclusion? Let us know in the comments below…
