Animal Kingdom turns 20 this year on Earth Day, April 22nd, and they’re celebrating bigger than they ever have before!
To celebrate this huge milestone year, the park will offer fun animal encounters, family-friendly activities, specialty desserts and more during the Party for the Planet celebration which is April 22nd – May 5th. Over the course of the Party for the Planet celebration, guests will be able to attend conservation talks by top animal-care experts and participate in enhanced animal interactions.
During the celebration, Rafiki’s Planet Watch will offer backstage experiences with experts where guests can learn all about animal nutrition, visit the veterinary hospital, and hear about what Disney does to promote global wildlife conservation.
Disney will also offer special photo opportunities to guests who visit during the celebration. Guests will be able to step into an over-sized picture frame celebrating the parks anniversary. Other photo frames will support Disney’s “Reverse The Decline” which is an initiative created to help protect 10 threatened animal species.
Guests will also get a commemorative adventure guide, limited-edition merchandise, and a special edition print created by Walt Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde. Joe Rohde will be there on April 22nd from 1-4 p.m to sign prints at Discovery Trading Company.
Little adventurers will get the chance to earn a limited-edition badge as part of the Wilderness Explorer program. This badge is just one of many that kids can earn by completing fun activities around the park.
