PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tree of Life Awakenings Projection Show Returns to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for Christmas 2020

To celebrate Christmas this year, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has brought back the holiday-themed Tree of Life awakenings shows. Each projection show lights up the Tree of Life, telling wintery tales set to a holiday-themed score.


Like last year, there are different shows. The first story is “The First Snow,” showing animals enjoying the transition between fall and winter. The second story is “Seasons of Light,” which depicts animals playing among the Northern Lights.


We love the holiday-themed Tree of Life shows. All of the imagery is beautifully done, and is backed by a wonderful musical score. For a full viewing of the show, check out our YouTube video below:

Currently, the show schedule seems to be incomplete. When we were visiting the park, the shows occurred roughly every 20 minutes between the hours of 6 PM to 7 PM. If you are interested in watching the show, we highly recommend checking the calendar ahead of your visit to the park, so you can plan accordingly.
