CELEBRATING EARTH DAY 2019 AT DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM
April 22, 2019: Lady DiVine is in full bloom today!!!
She should head on over to Epcot for the 2019 International Flower and Garden Festival going on there right now. She would fit right in!
We have never seen Lady DiVine in full bloom all covered in flowers before!
Happy Earth Day 2019! 🙂
Hands down, one of the coolest characters at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is Lady DiVine.
When Caroline was working at DAK, she would see her on most days, usually between 10am – 2pm, slowly walking on the pathway between Discovery Island and Africa.
She’s painted a deep green, walks on stilts, and is wrapped in leaves, ivy, and grape clusters to camouflage herself into the rest of the park’s tropical foliage.
Lady DiVIne walks on stilts so her height can vary between 7 feet to 16 feet depending on what she is doing with her arms and legs.
Lady 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 like she is enjoying pure nirvana (aka ‘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.
Totally awesome video of Lady DiVine in motion: Lady DiVine Walking at DAK
Hands down, we think she’s one of the coolest characters at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
We hope she never leaves! (DAK pun!)
Note: Lady DiVine has a cast member character handler with her at all times now after some guests got too close and grabbed at her leaves and tried to topple her!!!

We’ve written two books about our time working at Disney World.
Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
