Tree of Life Awakens

Good news for visitors to Disney World this Summer that are hoping to catch a glimpse of  the Tree of Life Awakenings projection show occurring nightly at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  New viewing platforms will be set up between Africa and Asia to accommodate more guests hoping to check out this nighttime display.  The added viewing space is just in time for the increase in crowd numbers that are likely to occur with the opening of Pandora: The World of Avatar later this Spring.

The new viewing platforms will be open to Animal Kingdom visitors beginning in late May 2017. Currently the only place to view Tree of Life Awakenings is on Discovery Island as you enter the park which is a high traffic area.

For those that haven’t had a chance to witness Tree of Life Awakenings yet, its definitely a worthy addition to your must-do list.  After night fall, the Tree of the Life, the beautiful landmark at the center of Animal Kingdom springs to life every 10 minutes.  You’ll be blow away by the life-like almost holographic quality of the projections depicting the spirits of the animals carved into tree the coming to life.



The event occurs each evening after the sunset and re-occurs every 10 minutes until park close.
