It’s shaping up to be a beautiful summer morning at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In this week’s “Good Morning” shot, photographer Courtney DiStasio caught the sun just as it was rising on the iconic Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Stretching 145 feet tall, the tree is “home” to 300 animal carvings – which now spring to life at night during the new “Nighttime Awakenings.” More on that offering here.
