PHOTOS, VIDEO: New Holiday Tree of Life Awakenings Show Lights Up The Night at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Festive cheer has taken over Disney’s Animal Kingdom leaving no stone, or tree, left behind. The Tree of Life awoke this evening for the first time in the holiday season to bring us wintry tales set to a heart-warming holiday-themed musical score. We couldn’t wait to see what this iconic centerpiece had in store for us and managed to capture the magic for you all.

Each Tree of Life Awakening features a different story. The first story of the night is known as “The First Snow”, which shows animals enjoying the transitioning from Fall to Winter. The second story covers the “Seasons of Light”, which shows animals frolicking across the Northern Lights.

Between awakening moments, the Tree of Life continues to shimmer and sparkle throughout the night, alive with the magic of nature and the spirit of the holidays. You can check out the full set of Tree of Life Holiday Awakenings in the video below!

Happy Holidays from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
