    Planner Inspiration: Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom

    There is no question about what the icon is at Animal Kingdom park in Walt Disney World.

    The Tree of Life is at the center of the park and at 145 feet tall, can be seen from all around. In fact, as you travel around the park, each viewpoint is different.

    As you get closer to the Tree of Life, you'll notice something really fun...there are carvings of animals in the tree!

    Disney has stated that there are over 300 animals carved into the Tree of Life...I wonder if anyone has actually counted? Instead of Hidden Mickeys, it could be hidden Tree of Life carvings!


    We recently went to Animal Kingdom to take photos of the Tree of Life for a new collection. One of the best ways to see a lot of the animals up close is to walk through the attraction line for It's Tough to be A Bug, which is actually an attraction INSIDE the Tree of Life. We entered the attraction line and just strolled through, moving aside and letting others pass while we took photos.

    We even had a Cast Member pull us into the Lightning Lane line so we could get a cool shot of a bear that can only be seen from a vantage point within that line. Have you seen it before?

    When we got to the attraction doors, they happened to be open and seating for the next show, so we walked right through and out the doors since we didn't want to watch the show at that time. This allowed us to exit out the back and get shots from that angle. You can also go straight to this location from the attraction exit by the entrance to Asia. When we were back there, we also noticed Photopass setting up for 360 shots, so don't be afraid to walk back there just because it looks like an exit might find something fun!

    Wait...what is a dinosaur doing here?! :D

    Another fun thing that occurs at the Tree of Life is Winged Encounters. Standing in front of the Tree of Life, you'll have a large flock of Macaws fly over and around you, from behind the Tree of Life and land on the carvings in front of you. It's brief, but you can catch it at several times throughout the day. Best part don't have to arrive early for a seat. Just stand there and look up!

    The Tree of Life is the inspiration for one of our newest collections! Available as a monthly kit or weekly kit (weekly sheets are available individually, as well) you can bring the Tree of Life to your planner! 

    We even included those Macaws from Winged Encounters in the washi strip!
