This week is a very exciting week for Disney — Not only is tomorrow the twenty second anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, but it’s also Earth Day!
Disney is always one to widely celebrate Earth Day with week-long park festivities due to the heavy emphasis the company places on conservation efforts — especially through the Animal Kingdom Park in Orlando, Florida.
Tiffin Talks Cancelled With Park Closures
Out of all of the different events, many people were excitedly anticipating the Tiffin Talks dining experience — featuring well known Disney imagineer Joe Rohde. This event was set to take place numerous times at the Tiffins Restaurant in Animal Kingdom, between April 19th and 24th. However with the Walt Disney World Resort Closure, Disney has worked to bring the Earth Day festivities to us all at home.
