As Earth Day draws near, Earth MONTH celebrations are ramping up at Disney World!
Animal Kingdom is the resident Earth Day Disney pro, with a whole month’s worth of special merch, drinks, and events well underway. Now, new Earth Day signage and a limited-edition pin have joined the park’s festivities!
Animal Kingdom and Earth Day go waaaaay back. That’s because not only is the park famed for its conservation efforts and lush decor, but the park actually opened on Earth Day in 1998! (Who’s got a big birthday comin’ up? YOU DO, ANIMAL KINGDOM!)
Naturally, the holiday doubles as a birthday, so Disney World always goes BIG with its Earth Day celebrations at Animal Kingdom, and this year is no different.
True to the holiday, the sign is bright green, noting “Earth Day Celebration at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”
We’re big fans of the eco-conscious Mickey Mouse silhouette on the left side of the sign, filled with recycling symbols, plants, and animals!
Once we were inside the park, we also spotted a new LIMITED EDITION Earth Day pin at Discovery Trading Co.!
This one is a beautiful Te Fiti Moana pin! The Hawaiian princess is shown rocking a flower crown and holding a bouquet, with the words “Earth Day” next to her!
Shaded in various hues of green, with a pop of color from the flowers, this pretty pin can be yours for $19.99 during Earth Month!
With Earth Day almost here (and, ahem, Animal Kingdom’s birthday!), we’ll continue to keep you posted on all the happenings at Disney World!
