Earth Day honors our planet and provides opportunities to come together and create a healthier home for people and wildlife, but it’s also Animal Kingdom’s 24th birthday, so it’s no wonder the park knows how to throw an epic Earth Day celebration, including a limited-time Wilderness Explorer activity that rewards you with an Earth Day Nature badge, a special Disney Character Cruise on Discovery River, a limited-edition Earth Day 2022 trading pin, and of course, specialty merchandise and custom food and beverages throughout the park.

“At Conservation Station, try your hand at drawing as Disney artists at The Animation Experience guide you step by step to bring your favorite Disney characters to life using real animals for inspiration,” wrote Disney Destinations Public Relations Manager Idalis Mercado in the Disney Parks Blog. “Each animal represents some of the amazing stories of conservation work Disney is doing around the world.”

But that’s not all. Look for extra Disney PhotoPass magic during Earth Week, including a Magic Shot just outside the park’s entrance that frames you with Wall-E and Eve from Disney and Pixar’s animated feature “Wall-E.”

Animal Kingdom’s Earth Day/Birthday celebration is a good time to remember that we can all do our part to create a healthier planet by doing things like planting a tree, picking up litter, recycling, and conserving energy.
