Hard to believe, but Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be celebrating its 15th anniversary on April 22, 2013 – which also happens to be Earth Day.
They have a slew of special events and opportunities for guests to enjoy throughout the day, including:
- 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.
- Earth Day “Party for the Planet” festivities – Special interactive activities that focus on animals and nature will take place throughout the park from 9am-5pm.
- Artists and other vendors will present their work in Africa and on Discovery Island, which will be available for purchase.
- Opportunity to purchase special 15th anniversary merchandise, available in limited quantities.
- Special food & beverage.
The 15th anniversary celebration is included with regular park admission.
I remember visiting the park right before it opened in 1998, and it’s grown into quite a fun park, especially if you love animals.
