Disney Parks After Dark: A Colorful Sunset at the Tree of Life

How amazing is the sunset over the Tree of Life in this week’s Disney Parks After Dark photo? The Florida sunset never ceases to amaze me, especially when you can see a sight like this – inside an amazing Disney theme park.

After the sun fully sets, it’s amazing to watch the tree come to life in a whole new way with the new Tree of Life Awakenings. In it, the tree “awakens” with light and color to showcase different stories from the animal kingdom, including tales about a doe, two hummingbirds, a fox and more.


  • I am anxiously awaiting the November hours to be extended past 7pm. We planned our trip with the expectation that we would be able to enjoy experiences like this and the Tree Of Life Awakening. Please, Please, Please extend November hours!

  • Perfect!

  • I do not understand why the park would close in December before sunset. Disney charges the same price for admission year round . Some of their other parks remain open until 9 pm allowing the quest the opportunity to see the parks at night. Animal Kingdom advertising the Tree of Light and River nighttime shows but then closes the park before allowing quest the ability to witness these events!

  • Looks inviting!
