Nighttime Awakenings at DAK’s Tree of Life


Animal spirits coming alive on the Tree of Life.


First look at the new Nighttime Awakening Show on the Tree of Life:  Nighttime Awakenings.

A brand new after-dark show is coming to DAK and we can’t wait to see it!  It’s called Nighttime Awakenings.  It’s premiering on Earth Day 2016, April 22nd.

A sunset, great Tree of Life will come alive with swirling colors, twinkling fireflies, and numerous animal spirits!


The Tree of Life after dark

After the sun sets, animal spirits within the great tree come alive and reveal themselves in mesmerizing color and light.

During the evening hours, pay special attention to the Tree of Life at the center of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. At various times, flickering fireflies magically appear and awaken the wondrous animals spirits carved into the tree’s towering trunk—bringing to light a stunning visual extravaganza swarming with vivid color and animated imagery.

Witness a graceful young doe embark on a thrilling cross-country journey. Behold love blossoming between 2 hummingbirds. See a spry fox spreading gifts of love among the denizens of a wintry forest.

A feast for the eyes, each approximately 3-minute-long revelation celebrates the eternal balance and harmony that exists in all living things, big or small, and is sure to inspire and delight the entire family, big and small.

Good night DAK!

I worked at DAK for 1 1/2 years and it’s my favorite Disney park!  “Be careful – it’s a jungle out there!” 🙂

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
