Celebrate Animal Kindgom’s 15th Anniversary on Earth Day!

April 22nd Disney will be celebrating the 15th Anniversary with special events all over the park.  I remember the first time that I went to Animal Kingdom!  My son was just 2 years old and everything was larger that life to him.  We went to Rafiki’s conservation station to see the petting zoo.  Tyler loved to be able to touch the animals as well as see them.  The cast members took the time to see that Tyler understand that the goat that he was brushing liked to have his ears scratched.  Tyler might not remember this as it was 11 years ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday.  This is  a great way to celebrate Earth day and remember all the great times you had with your family when you first came to Animal kingdom.

Here are a few of the details of what’s planned for the park’s anniversary:

  • Special opening ceremony – Meet at the Tree of Life at 8:40 a.m., to hear from Josh D’Amaro, Vice President of Disney’s Animal Kingdom; Dr. Jackie Ogden, Vice President of Animals, Science and Environment; and Joe Rohde, Senior Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering Creative. Make sure you arrive early for this!
  • Earth Day “Party for the Planet” festivities – Special interactive activities that focus on animals and nature will take place throughout the park from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Artists and other vendors will present their work on in Africa and on Discovery Island, with their work available for purchase.
  • Opportunity to purchase special 15th anniversary merchandise, available in limited quantities.
  • Special food & beverage.

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
