One of the best days to celebrate Earth Day is right at Walt Disney World! There is no better way to get up close and personal to wildlife and appreciate all of the nature surrounding you than at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

During Earth Week, Disney World has fun offerings to commemorate the celebration. Be on the lookout for rare characters, delicious treats, fun Magic Shots and more!

Last year’s celebration was significant as it coincided with Animal Kingdom’s 25th Anniversary. You can take a look at this year’s offerings in this post.

Special events are a great opportunity for Disney to bring out rare characters. We see this for Halloween and Christmas parties, runDisney races, and DVC events.

Our favorite Character Locator, Kenny the Pirate, has been meeting rare characters for over a decade! You can find schedules, tips, and more on Character Locator.

All this week, Disney friends are stopping by Animal Kingdom to celebrate Earth Week. From April 21 to April 28, be on the look out around the Tree of Life and on the waterways around the park.
