Tree of Life Awakenings

Why It's Our Favorite Ride

The Tree of Life Awakenings is my favorite attraction in Disney because it’s a stunning nighttime projection show on the iconic Tree of Life. The stories and music that accompany the projections are truly magical, and it’s a great way to wind down after a long day at Animal Kingdom. My tip is to catch the show later in the evening when the crowds have thinned out and the wait times are shorter. Plus, the enhanced experience of seeing the Tree of Life come alive in the dark is truly unforgettable. And keep an eye out for hidden Mickeys in the projections!

What to Eat

After enjoying the mesmerizing Tree of Life Awakenings, head over to Harambe Market for some delicious African-inspired street food. The grilled chicken skewers and beef kabobs are both flavorful and filling, and the sides of roasted vegetables and spiced rice make for a well-rounded meal. Plus, the lively atmosphere of Harambe Market will keep the magic of Animal Kingdom going even after the show is over.
