Celebrating Earth Month 2021, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will host several limited-time experiences from April 18 to 24 2021.

Offerings this year will include unique Disney character appearances, learning opportunities, specialty merchandise, themed food and beverage, a new Wilderness Explorer activity and more.

Here’s a look at what’s in store:

  • Special characters will join other favorite Disney pals on Discovery River Character Cruises.

  • Limited-time specialty cupcakes: the Creature Comfort’s Honey Bee Cupcake, the strawberry-flavored Flamingo Cupcake at Flame Tree Barbecue, or the Sea Turtle Graham Cracker Cupcake at Restaurantosaurus Lounge.

  • Self-guided, nature-themed challenges and earn a special Wilderness Explorer limited-time Earth Day Nature badge.

  • Hunt for an Earth Day 2021 limited-edition Te Fiti Moana trading pin. You can also support the Disney Conservation Fund by purchasing a plush inspired by species that call Disney’s Animal Kingdom home; or check out Island Me.

  • Disney PhotoPass Service special in-park Earth Day backgrounds and Magic Shots, including an all-new photo opportunity.

  • Beginning April 2, you can watch as artisans transform 40 tons of sand into a detailed sculpture celebrating National Geographic’s “Secrets of the Whales,” an original series streaming on Disney+ on Earth Day. The sculpture will be located on the Discovery Island Stage until April 30.

Yep, I am excited to see something new. I usually go at the same time of year and am kind of sick of the same themed items. Everyone likes something different. Frankly, I think character meet and greets are stupid. Ok, I am standing next to Mickey, AGAIN. Let me take yet another picture with a giant mouse that I will never look at again. You see how rude it is to make fun of what other's like?

If you get excited about a cupcake, a pin, a photo background, a self-guided “challenge”, and “special” characters added to a cavalcade, more power to you. This is BAU stuff as far as I’m concerned. They could do much more and much better. But... Covid.

Interesting but not exciting.

I would be happy to be going too since Animal Kingdom is my favorite park, but not because of this

I am excited to actually be there while they do one of these events. I always seem to miss them. You all can hate on it, I will enjoy the offerings. 😁

Lol, yeah not very enticing

Wow. I don’t know if this could be more shallow.
