Disney’s Animal Kingdom: ‘Tree of Life Awakenings’ Viewing Area to Expand in May 2017

Tree of Life Awakenings in Disney Animal Kingdom Walt Disney World

The Tree of Life Awakenings has been one of the biggest crowd pleasers since it was introduced as part of Disney Animal Kingdom’s nighttime entertainment last year. Now more Walt Disney World guests will be able to experience it.

According to WDW Magic, in late May 2017 Tree of Life Awakenings will have an expanded viewing area. Now guests will be able to view this unique projection show from new viewing areas along the walkway from Africa to Asia.

For those who are unfamiliar with Tree of Life Awakenings, it’s a projection show that brings the Tree of Life to “life.” Every 10 minutes, the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom comes “alive” with colorful animal segments featuring animals carved into the tree. It’s become extremely popular, and as Disney continues to prep Animal Kingdom for the coming of Pandora – The World of Avatar, they’re likely looking to expand nighttime entertainment outside of the Avatar-themed land.
