Seeing DiVine at Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Caroline saw DiVine every day at work.

Hands down, one of the coolest characters at the Animal Kingdom is DiVine.

While Caroline was working at DAK, she would see her on most days, usually between 10am-2pm, on the pathway between Africa and Asia.


So pretty!

She’s painted green, walks on stilts, and is wrapped in leaves, ivy, and grapes to camouflage herself into the rest of the park’s foliage.


She’s almost 7 feet tall!

While working, DiVine would come walking by Discovery Island and everyone would just stop and stare.  She’s is on stilts so her height can vary between 7 feet to 16 feet depending on what she is doing with her hands and legs.

DiVine doesn’t make eye contact while she is hidden in the park’s foliage. In fact, she often keeps her eyes closed and the expression on her face looks much like she is enjoying pure nirvana (‘communing with nature’). Like all plants, she doesn’t ever speak, but she’s a great listener.   🙂

She also doesn’t sign autographs (take a look at her hands in the video below), but loves to pose for photos.


So cool!  Moving from tree to tree.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
