This Sunday, April 22, 2018, is a very special day in Disney history! April 22, 2018 marks the 20th Anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park!
This significant milestone celebration will also mark the beginning of the park’s annual ‘Party for the Planet’, which will expand to run for two weeks this year to celebrate the park’s special anniversary. The 2018 ‘Party for the Planet’ event will run through May 5th. Everyone knows a party is not complete without cake! Or in this case some very special cupcakes! If you will be in the park during the celebration be sure to look for Earth Day Cupcakes and Tree of Life Cupcakes at counter service locations such as Creature Comforts, Pizzafari, Flame Tree Barbecue, and Restaurantosaurus.
