Is there something special that you are doing to help the planet? Earth Day is the moment when the world wraps a big symbolic hug around the bright blue world that we call home. 

Kid at Disney's Animal Kingdom

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, come join in the fun of our annual Earth Day Celebration, as the park spends not just the day but an entire week honoring our planet and how we can all come together to create a healthier home for people and wildlife. That’s right, a whole week – April 18-24 – connecting with the magic of nature through family-friendly experiences and special offerings.  

Disney’s Animal Kingdom delivers an Earth Day Celebration like no other. Share in the spirit of wildlife conservation and learn more about animal species the Disney Conservation Fund is working to protect. At Conservation Station, try your hand at drawing as Disney artists at The Animation Experience guide you step by step to bring your favorite Disney characters to life using real animals for inspiration. Each animal represents some of the amazing stories of conservation work Disney is doing around the world. 

You can also check out a limited-time Wilderness Explorer activity that rewards you with an Earth Day Nature badge. 

Disney PhotoPass magic featuring WALL-E and Eve

You’ll also want to make tracks to Discovery Island where you can spot a special Disney Character Cruise on Discovery River. And throughout the park you can find Disney PhotoPass magic including a Magic Shot just outside the park’s entrance that frames you with Wall-E and Eve from Disney and Pixar’s animated feature “Wall-E.” Of course, as you stroll through the park, take time to marvel at its heart and soul – the majestic animals in our care.

And, lastly, don’t forget to pick up a limited-edition Earth Day 2022 trading pin to commemorate the celebration! You’ll also find specialty merchandise and custom food and beverages at the park during this exciting week.

Remember the ways big and small we can all do our part to create a happier, healthier planet – from planting a tree to picking up litter, recycling or turning off lights to conserve energy. We can help keep our planet healthy and make every day Earth Day.

I hope to see you at the park for our Earth Week Celebration April 18-24. And Happy 24th Birthday on Earth Day, Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
