Tip Tuesday: Finding Divine
Welcome to another Tip Tuesday!
This week, we're heading to Disney Animal Kingdom (Captains - this is for you!) to talk about one of my favorite hidden treasures - Divine!
If you've never seen Divine, and she can be easy to miss, you're missing out on one of the best examples of live character entertainment in all of Animal Kingdom. As you can see from the photo above, Divine is a cast member on stilts dressed all in leaves and other foliage. Her gangly shape is barely humanoid in form, so, I suspect that's why some people pass her by.
She often can be found along the pathway between Africa and Asia. This photo was taken of Divine near the Africa side of this pathway. She tends to hide in areas with a lot of foliage, so it's easier for her to blend in. Her "appearances" often are listed in the Animal Kingdom times guides, so be sure to check that out so you know when to keep an eye out. Don't think you're going to get a photo with Divine, she's not that kind of character and, obviously, she doesn't do autographs.
If you do run across Divine, be sure to stay and people watch for a bit. You'll be surprised how many people will pass right by. Also be sure to pay attention to how she moves. The cast member really does go fully into character, making slow, vine-like movements. You could almost imagine this really is a creature made of vines.
On your next visit to Animal Kingdom, take a few minutes and appreciate the incredible performance of Divine - she's one more example of how Disney takes the theme park experience to a whole new level.
