Starting tonight, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will introduce its biggest holiday celebration in the park’s two-decade history, with festive offerings available for guests to enjoy day and night!

One of the most anticipated holiday offerings are the new holiday Tree of Life awakenings. As the sun sets, the Tree of Life will awaken with a series of wintry tales that play out before a holiday score. In between awakenings, the Tree of Life will shimmer and sparkle throughout the night, alive with the spirit of the holidays.

Check out a sneak peek at the awakenings in the video above.
