If you are planning to visit Disney World in April, one of the events you will get to experience is the Disney Earth Day Celebration at Animal Kingdom. While Earth Day is April 22, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park celebrates the week of April 17-23, 2023.
This event primarily focuses on creating positive change in the world around us with a spotlight on Disney’s global conservation efforts.
During this popular event, guests will be treated to unique character sightings, specialty food and beverage choices along with new learning experiences. Kids can even get a limited-time Wilderness Explorer badge!
