Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is an up-close look at the natural world and the 4th Disney park to be built. It opened on Earth Day, April 22, 1998, and is dedicated to protecting the natural environment and animal conservation, themes that were very close to Mr. Disney’s heart. The centerpiece of the park is the iconic Tree of Life – a 145-foot-tall, 50-foot-wide man-made baobab tree. a towering symbol of how all of us on planet Earth are connected. It is actually the largest theme park in the world, covering 580 acres but in reality, for most visitors, it does not typically take as much time to see as Magic Kingdom or EPCOT. When the sun rises over the Savannah you’d better be there! Animals love the cooler mornings, not the midday heat, so rise and shine. There are lots to see – over 1700 animals across 250 species!
