Hey folks, Adam here!

The nighttime awakening of the Tree of Life is a new staple for the evening activities in Animal Kingdom, and just as the tree itself is an iconic landmark during the day, it becomes an entirely different beast when the sun sets. The branches and leaves glisten and sparkle like millions of butterflies, and light cascades up-and-down the trunk. There’s a pulsating life that stretches all throughout the park during these nighttime festivities, and nothing feels the same once the lights kick in.

You can see it in full video splendor below:

Without a doubt, these brand-new nighttime experiences are nothing short of breathtaking and will absolutely turn Animal Kingdom from a “half-day park” into a “full-day park”. The imagineers have put a ton of love and respect into this new endeavor, and it pays off in spades. Guys, if you’re reading this, you should all be very very proud of yourselves. But you don’t need me to tell you that. The proof is in the pudding. Nighttime at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a must-see.
