Special Party for the Planet event planned for Disney’s Animal Kingdom This Weekend 1

Animal Kingdom has announced they will be celebrating Earth Day this year with it’s first ever Party for the Planet Celebration! This three-day celebration will take place from April 21st to April 23rd, 2017.

Here are some tips if you are planning to Party for the Planet this weekend:

  • Pick up a Party for the Planet Times Guide when you enter the park to help you plan the day.
  • Choose how you will “see nature” and tell the story of your day at the park. In the Oasis, select one of 10 different animal cut-outs (while supplies last) to enhance your experience while raising awareness of the animals Disney Conservation Fund is helping protect through our Reverse the Decline, Increase the Time initiative. Be sure to share your photos on social media using #DisneyAnimals!

  • Along Maharajah Jungle Trek in Asia, take part in an activity focused on snow leopards, one of the amazing animals featured in Disneynature “Born in China.” You can also pick up a free activity packet (while supplies last) based on the film. We’re posting this activity below if you want to get a head start!
  • Disney PhotoPass photographers will create a special Magic Shot image based on “Born in China” and will have fun Earth Day props you can use to enhance your photos.

  • Shop special vendors in Discovery Island and Africa who are here for our Earth Day celebrations.
  • Be sure to arrive at “Flights of Wonder” early for special conservation-themed pre-shows and opportunities to meet a Disney veterinarian.
  • Show your animal side with face painters and caricature artists at Conservation Station.
