Celebrate Earth Day 2014 with Party for the Planet at Walt Disney World

Posted on
To celebrate Earth Day, Walt Disney World is bringing back popular activities from past years -- and adding a few surprises -- at the resort on Tuesday. The biggest celebration, Party for the Planet, takes place at Animal Kingdom, and the activities are included with regular admission to the theme park. As guests enter the park, they will again see displays of wildlife-friendly backyard habitats and be encouraged to collect a free postcard. The postcards are a visual reminder of where to find the Earth Day activities and, in years past, guests were invited to mail them for free at several special mailboxes located throughout Animal Kingdom.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Celebrates 15th Anniversary on Earth Day

Posted on
On Monday, April 22, 2013, Disney's Animal Kingdom celebrated two festivities -- Earth Day 2013 and the theme park's 15th anniversary.

Because this was open to the public -- and held before rope drop -- it garnered quite a crowd as fans gathered to celebrate and park-goers waited to be let into the rest of Animal Kingdom. The highlight was a performance of The Lion King's "Circle of Life."
