The Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be spruced up with a repainting beginning Sunday, January 15.
Though repainting will mostly take place overnight, some structures connected to the project (such as scaffolding and platforms) may be in view of guests during park operating hours. During the refurbishment, select walking trails around the Tree of Life may also be temporarily closed. No end date has been set as of the writing of this article.
The tree serves as the centerpiece of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Recently, it served as the home to the holiday version of “Tree of Life Awakenings” projection show, as well as a special edition themed to “Avatar: The Way of Water.”
