Adults with Disabilities Create Holiday Decor for Animal Kingdom

There’s a special touch of magic around Animal Kingdom this holiday season.

The white snowflakes woven into garland hanging on the shops and buildings in Discovery Island were handmade by artisans from the Augusta Training Shop, a nonprofit organization in Augusta, Georgia that employs adults with cognitive and physical disabilities, enabling them to discover their abilities and create rich and meaningful lives.

Some of the people who made them were surprised with a trip to Walt Disney World to see their creations.

The holiday season runs through January 6, 2020.
