Celebrating Earth Day 2017 with ‘Party for the Planet’ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Party for the Planet #DisneyAnimals

Guests can honor Earth Day 2017 by participating in ‘Party for the Planet’ activities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on April 21-23, 2017. [Earth Day is April 22, 2017.]

Party for the Planet is “a fun and festive way to connect with nature and be inspired to protect our planet” through a variety of special offerings at Animal Kingdom, including opportunities to explore the nature and wildlife of the park.

Special sweet treats will be available.

Guests visiting over the weekend of April 21-23 can pick up a Party for the Planet Times Guide when entering the park to help plan your the day. While at the Oasis, guests can also select one of 10 different animal cut-outs and they are encouraged to take photos for sharing on social media using the hashtag #DisneyAnimals.

Guests can also shop for special merchandise inspired by nature and wildlife including Boiled Books (featuring embossed artwork and stationery created with pressed natural elements, like leaves, flowers and seeds), Petal Pushers (a purveyor of giftable plants), and Jortra (selling handmade jewelry made from coffee beans, orange peels and cantaloupe seeds). These special vendors can be found outside Island Merchantile on Discovery Island and at Mombasa Marketplace in Africa.

And, there will be special characters at the meet and greet:

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 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 Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
