Animal Kingdom opened in 1998 on Earth Day, it was Disney World’s fourth park. The tree of life, which is the focal point of the park is not a real tree, but could easily pass as one. The real grandeur and magnificence of this tree can only be truly appreciated in real life. It actually looked like it was animated or painted into the background! It is such an amazing sight from every angle and you can even go inside the tree when you see the Bug’s Life attraction It’s Tough to be a Bug.
