Guests visiting Discovery Island will find themselves in the midst of a celebration of winter.

During the day, Discovery Island will spring to life with a holiday gathering of winter animals with artisan-sculpted puppets, including reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more. In the evening, the Tree of Life Awakening will include a series of wintry tales, complemented by a holiday-inspired musical score.
