Earth Day is fast approaching on April 22nd, which is always a big event at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This year is no exception and in advance of the big day, Jeremiah stopped by the park for a preview of what’s in store for Guests this year.

One of the first things you’ll notice as you enter the park is a banner reminding you about the important holiday, which also happens to be the park’s birthday.

One of the big Earth Day initiatives this year is the premiere of National Geographic’s Secrets of the Whales on Disney+. Sand sculptures have been made in prior years to help promote Disneynature films and this year, Guests will find a giant sand sculpture to promote the new 4-part series, which was produced by James Cameron.

There are some special Earth Day limited time menu offerings for snacking choices, starting with a pink flamingo cupcake with strawberry pearls.

The key-lime sea turtle cupcake features an adorable gummy sea turtle riding the frosting wave.

If you’re thirsty, you can try the Loggerhead Turtle, an apple-flavored soda drink.

Wilderness Explorers can earn a special Earth Day badge outside of Conservation Station.

And you might even see a fellow Wilderness Explorer or too while out earning your badges.

While you’re there, you might also want to commemorate the day by purchasing the Earth Day 2021 pin featuring Te Fiti from Moana.

As always, a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is full of unique ways to celebrate the beautiful planet we all come home. The Earth Day celebration will be ramping up all week leading up to the big day on April 22nd.
