Witness the majestic centerpiece of Disney's Animal Kingdom park as it comes alive at night like never before!

An All-New Nighttime Experience

Watch in wonder when the animal spirits within the great tree awaken during a mesmerizing showcase of colour and light.

After night falls, pay special attention to the Tree of Life at the center of Disney's Animal Kingdom park. Approximately every 10 minutes, flickering fireflies magically appear and stir to life the wondrous animals spirits carved into the tree's towering trunk—bringing to light a stunning visual swarming with vivid colour and animated imagery.

Gaze upon a graceful young doe embarking upon a thrilling journey. Behold love blossoming between a pair of hummingbirds. See a spry fox spreading gifts of love among the denizens of a wintry forest. A feast for the eyes, each revelation celebrates the eternal balance and harmony that exists in all living things, big or small, and is sure to inspire and delight the entire family, big and small.

Please note: Tree of life Awakenings experiences begin after dark and occur approximately every 10 minutes until the park closes.
