Tree of Life Garden Returns to Animal Kingdom After Multi-Year Closure

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The long-closed Tree of Life Garden pathway that has been closed for several years has finally reopened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The area can be accessed across the path from Creature Comforts (Starbucks) or at the other end by the entrance to “it’s tough to be a bug”.

It is much easier to see the kangaroos from this pathway.

This area might be the most photogenic in all of Walt Disney World and a wonderful place to go and relax and escape the crowds.

With this path now open, (and the other recently opened trails) the years of work around the Tree of Life are finally finished
