Earth Day Celebration at Disney Animal Kingdom

Updated: 12 March 2013 05:15:22 AM

Earth Day, held annually on April 22nd, is an international event to celebrate, improve and preserve the earth.

Started in the late 1960’s by environmental activists and concerned lawmakers, Earth Day is now observed by more than 500 million people in 175 countries.

It is a day to call attention to the needs of our Mother Globe and how each and every inhabitant can make a difference.

Worldwide events and lectures will center on climate change, recycling ideas, pollution and animal issues.

Where better to tackle the tough animal causes than Disney‘s Animal Kingdom?

Walt Disney was known to be a lover of all animals and wildlife – his many beloved and gentle animal films and wildlife documentaries are testament to that.

An Earth Day celebration at his Animal Kingdom would fit perfectly with Disney’s philosophy.

So – come, party, celebrate with the Disney crew.

Activity Centers

Earth Day at Animal Kingdom

As April 22nd is the 12 anniversary of the Animal Kingdom’s opening, the fun starts right at the ticket counter!

Earth-friendly games, at specific activity centers, will be featured through the theme park.

Rafiki’s Planet Watch, designated “Earth Day Party Central”, is hosting many fun activities just for the kiddies (Can you out jump a frog?

How long could you wear a tortoise shell?

What do you know about ladybugs?)


Experts will be on hand to discuss ways we can help save oceans, coral reefs and wildlife habitats.

Oceans, Disney’s new nature film, will premiere on Earth Day.

Proceeds from the theme song, “Make a Wave” recorded by Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato, will be given to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.

The Nature Conservancy will benefit, too, as Disney plans to make a donation for every visitor who sees Oceans that day.

The Nature Conservancy has announced all proceeds will go toward improving coral reefs.

Earth Day is important.

Every effort, large or small, to improve our planet is an effort well spent.

So why not do well and have fun at the same time.

Party at the Animal Kingdom April 22nd.

Mother Earth will thank you.
