Tree of Life Garden Trail At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Has Reopened

Tree of Life Garden Trail At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Has Reopened

There are many trails that guests can discover when visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Some of the trails have been closed due to a refurbishment to Otter Grotto which has recently been reopened.  The Tree of Life Garden Trail has also reopened.

The Tree of Life Garden Trail is a pathway that takes guests throughout the roots and allows guests to get an up-close view of the animal carvings on the Tree of Life.  There are two access points for this trail.  One is located near It’s Tough to be a Bug! while the other is located near Creature Comforts.

The Tree of Life Garden Trail allows guests to view the Tree of Life up close.  One of the things that makes the Tree of Life so special is that it has various animals carved into its trunk.  Now guests can have a better vantage point for spotting all of the species that make up the Animal Kingdom, such as the porcupine, squirrel, ant, and countless others!

As can be seen in the photo, the Tree of Life Garden Trail has prime viewing of the red kangaroos!

There are also caves and waterfalls that can be passed through while walking down this pathway.  It really is a great escape from the hustle and bustle that can be found around other areas of the park.

Check out our video of the view of the Tree of Life that can be found by walking this trail:
