Disney parks will play host to two furry visitors this spring, as characters from Disney's fictional city Zootopia stop by for a visit. 

Nick Wilde, a con-artist fox, and Judy Hopps, a police officer bunny, are two characters from Disney's newest movie, Zootopia, which is essentially about a modern mammal metropolis where animals, not people, sip lattes and snap selfies. 

According to the Disney Parks Blog, the pair will be joining the other party animals in Magic Kingdom's "Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It!" street party. Usually, the 35-minute performance occurs two or three times a day at the park in front of Cinderella's Castle. 

Zootopia opens in theaters Friday, March 4, but you won't be able to find it's anthropomorphic stars in the park until later this spring. So far, no official date has been announced for their appearance.
