Disney's Animal Kingdom "Party For The Planet" Offers Fun Photo Ops

Fun Photo Ops abound at Disney’s Animal Kingdom “Party For The Planet” to celebrate Earth Day, their 20th Anniversary and their Conservation efforts taking place around the world.  Disney Photopass Photographers are located around the park, and at the ready, to take your picture and help you create some awesome memories.   We were able to capture our own memorable and Fun Photo Ops while we were at the Park this past weekend.

20th Anniversary Celebration

One of our favorite Fun Photo Ops is also a bit scary.  The hyenas Shenzi, Banzai and Ed from The Lion King will have you shaking in your shoes!  The Photopass Photographer asked me to put my knees together and my fisted hands to my mouth.  He did not tell me why, but when I checked My Disney Experience and saw this picture I was quite surprised.

My personal favorite of the day was the Bambi and Friends.  I mean look at Flower and Thumper.   They are so adorable!  Animals are certainly the focus in many of the uFn Photo Ops around the Animal Kingdom Park.

20th Anniversary Celebration

Speaking of animals, be sure to get your Magic Shot photo with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa in front of The Tree of Life.

Do you have a little one who is a fan of The Lion Guard?  If so then a photo with Kion is a must for your Fun Photo Ops list.

Setting the Butterflies free is another one of the Fun Photo Ops you can find in front of The Tree of Life.  This particular location has many different options for Magic Shots.

Looking for something a bit more adventurous?  Try this Wilderness Explorer Magic Shot and see if you can spot a bird, or maybe a squirrel.  Oh, and have you, by chance, practiced the Wilderness Explorer Oath lately?

You will find hand-held props for some fabulously Fun Photo Ops all around the park.  The Butterfly is featured on the entrance bridge into the park near The Tree of Life.    You can find the sweet Tamarin Monkey in front of The Tree of Life.  The Gorilla is located in Africa near the exit of Kilimanjaro Safari.

Banshee 20th Anniversary Celebration

The Banshee hand-held prop photo op is located on the bridge at the entrance to Pandora: The World of Avatar.

20th Anniversary Celebration

In addition to celebrating Earth Day and the “Party For The Planet,” the park was also celebrating its 20th Anniversary!  They had this really cool photo op at the entrance to the Animal Kingdom.  I love how The Tree of Life is in the background and you are surrounded by the majestic Animals who call this amazing park their Home.

Many more Fun Photo Ops exist around Disney’s Animal Kingdom in honor of the “Party For The Planet.”  Be sure to step up to a Photopass Photographer and ask them if they have any Magic Shots or Props available for photos.  Check your My Disney Experience app and prepare to be surprised at what you will see!
