|Disney's Animal Kingdom|
I recently had the pleasure of meeting both DiVine and Bamboo. Although they are silent, as plants tend to be, they each are escorted by a Disney castmember who will happily speak on their behalf.
DiVine is a beautiful tall graceful creature covered in leaves and vines. Currently, you can find her at the top of the hour, each hour, during the mornings. She slinks her way along the paths of the front entrance of the Oasis until she settles in and winds herself lovingly around a tree.

I asked her escort, Tricia, how long DiVine has been in the park. She stated, “She has been here since the park opened. We found her when we were excavating.” I do so love these little moments of Disney magic through storytelling.

Bamboo is a bit more rugged than the graceful DiVine. He is sturdy and strong. He stands tall and powerful like a protective warrior over the forest. Chris, the castmember escorting him said that, “Bamboo is a plant that is always growing. But, he was just recently discovered within the park.”

Bamboo currently makes appearances on the half-hour throughout the mornings. Guests can find him wandering along the path just past the bridge into Africa that leads towards Bradley Falls.

Neither DiVine nor Bamboo are listed on the park guides. Ask a castmember or guest services for information on their times and locations if you have trouble finding them.
