The Tree of Life, the iconic symbol of Disney’s Animal Kingdom rises 14 stories into the sky to loom over the entire park. Over 103,000 artificial leaves are on the tree. The majestic carvings are truly awe inspiring. There are more than 325 carved animals set into the tree to give it the full 3D effect. The recent remodel seems to have made everything crisper and cleaner.
The walking trails leading up to and around the tree make for perfect picture opportunities. There really isn’t a bad view. Remember you can always ask any Cast Member to take a picture of you with your own camera/cell phone.
The tree of life has a show in it’s root system called It’s Tough To Be a Bug. It’s based on the movie Bugs Life and is a 4D fun for all ages show. I will warn you that some people find it scary due to the bee sting/bug movement simulations. Little ones can always sit on a lap to avoid that. The theater is dark.
