Multi-Day Celebration at Disney's Animal Kingdom for 50th Anniversary of Earth Day

Disney’s Animal Kingdom will host special entertainment and activities throughout the park on April 18th through 22nd, 2020. A large celebration will take place on Earth Day – April 22nd.

Each day features a great lineup of expert speakers and entertainment, behind-the-scenes tours, specialty food and beverage, limited-edition merchandise signings, character greetings, photo spots, and special Wilderness Explorers activities for kids.

During the Wild by Nature Speaker Series, you will get to hear from some of Animal Kingdom’s animal experts, educators and conservation heroes at the Theater in the Wild.  You can learn about the ways Disney’s own conservation experts are working to save the planet and its wildlife.

Disney has also invited new Disney colleagues at National Geographic to join in the fun. Nat Geo Explorers will share their stories  as well as wildlife photography and video techniques.

Joe Rohde will delight guests again this year with his Tiffins Talks featuring a spectacular four-course meal and lively discussion on his research trips and personal exhibitions from a life dedicated to exploration. Registration for this dining experience will begin February 18.

You can also get a look at this year’s Disneynature films debuting on Disney+ in April, Elephant and Dolphin Reef, including discussions with Roy Conli, award-winning producer of the films.

Earth Day 2020 is also the 25th Anniversary of the Disney Conservation Fund. As part of the celebration, the Disney Conservation Fund will showcase 25 global wildlife heroes. Many of these stories will be featured in “Disney Conservation Legacy,” which is a new special edition 25th anniversary book, available for purchase in the park during the Earth Day celebration.

At the Animation Experience at Conservation Station, you will uncover the secret of how Disney animators bring your favorite characters to life. There will be special Disney characters featured for the Earth Day Celebration!

On Earth Day, if you can’t make it out to the park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom also will be one of the places featured in the global live television event “BORN WILD: EARTH DAY LIVE,” simulcast on National Geographic and Nat Geo WILD on April 22, at 8/7c. The special will feature National Geographic Explorers and ABC News anchors who will take a journey into the most fascinating environments around the world to celebrate the diversity of baby animals, their families and habitats.

What a great few days celebrating this beautiful planet!
