DiVine at Disney's Animal Kingdom

by Nick

I've heard about her for years, but never saw DiVine in over a dozen trips to Walt Disney World and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

In case you don't know, DiVine is a very talented stilt performer who is adorned in vines and leaves who so seamlessly blends in with the dense foliage of Animal Kingdom, that you can easily pass her by without ever knowing she is there.

In fact, we would have very likely missed her once again on our last visit to Animal Kingdom in January, if not for noticing the people who were photographing what appeared to be a normal stand of trees on the Discovery Island Trails as we were exiting the park for the day.

I approached for a photo, and didn't even notice her descend slowly. My wife captured this on film. Yes. That is a Kermit the Frog hat on my head, it was cold!

It was lucky we caught her, because a moment later, she started to slowly meander backstage. We watched her for a few moments, and she was gone. I'm really happy we finally got to see her!

Have you ever had the opportunity to see DiVine?

  1. I have been fortunate to see DiVine on 3 separate occasions. She is lovely to watch and I get such a kick out of the shock on people's faces when they realize that she is right in front of them.
