Celebrating Earth Month at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Guests can celebrate Earth Day 2019 by participating in ‘Party for the Planet’ activities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, April 20 – April 22, 2019.
Earth Day is on April 22, 2019.
DAK’s Dedication Rock, April 22, 1998. Do you know where this rock is at DAK?
FYI: Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened 21 years ago on Earth Day, April 22, 1998.
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 Disney’s Animal Kingdom, including opportunities to explore the nature and wildlife of the park.
Sea Waste Artwork: See the Adélie penguin sculpture walking over sea trash. The sculpture is more than initially meets the eye – it’s made entirely out of recycled marine debris such as bottle caps, toothbrushes and even discarded toys, all recovered from oceans and waterways! The artwork was created by the nonprofit organization WashedAshore.org,
Free reusable bags at DAK today given out to guest at the front entrance.
Art to Save the Sea: See the Adélie penguin and her baby sculpture resting on a pebble nest. The installation is more than initially meets the eye – it’s made entirely out of recycled marine debris such as bottle caps, toothbrushes and even discarded toys, all recovered from oceans and waterways! The artwork was created by the nonprofit organization WashedAshore.org.
Earth Day Cupcake, $6. Well worth it! 🙂
Guests visiting during Earth Month 2019 can pick up a 2019 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.

Tree of Life dark chocolate cupcake. It was delicious!
Final Note: DAK has been mobbed in the early mornings because of Pandora. It’s better to arrive at DAK mid- to late-morning, after 10am, to avoid long wait lines at the main entrance.
Spring Break 2019: DAK entrance is mobbed with people waiting to get into Pandora.
The wait line for Flight of Passage!!!! The FastPasses for this attraction have been extremely hard to get. 😦
It’s sad all the marine wildlife being harmed by plastics in the oceans.
