How to Celebrate Earth Month 2023 with Disney

Happy Earth Month! What better time to talk about life-sized recycled elephant sculptures, plant-based treats, an inspiring new series, a 25th park anniversary and so much more? We have so much to share about how we’re celebrating throughout April, so let’s get started.

At Disney, we’re committed to taking meaningful action to support a healthier planet for future generations. By reducing our environmental footprint, investing in animal care and conservation, and telling stories that inspire action, we are continuing our longstanding work to ensure that people, plants, and animals have a healthy place to call home. These collective efforts are known as Disney Planet Possible — tangible actions we’re taking that put possibility into practice and inspire optimism for a brighter, more sustainable future for us all.

Celebrate 25 Years of Innovation & Conservation at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park



Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will celebrate its 25th anniversary this Earth Day, and since it opened in 1998, this one-of-a-kind theme park has embraced the magic of nature by offering awe-inspiring animal encounters and thrilling attractions. Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment team leads the way in providing best-in-class animal care, connects guests to nature and engages in scientific programs focused on conserving wildlife in Disney’s backyard and beyond while inspiring all individuals to care for wildlife and wild places through everyday actions. And since 1995, the Disney Conservation Fund has directed more than $120 million and the expertise of our dedicated teams to support organizations working with communities to save wildlife, inspire action, and protect the planet.



In April, there will be a number of new ways to join in the celebration for Earth Day and this milestone, including new sweet and savory treats, specialty merchandise, limited-time character sightings, and a National Geographic photo spot at the entrance of the park in celebration of the second season of “Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” on Disney+.

At Disneyland Resort, guests can enjoy delicious dishes from Paradise Garden Grill’s new fully plant-based menu for the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, now until April 25. Kristen Kish from National Geographic’s Restaurants at the End of the World will also be stopping by the Festival for a cooking demonstration on April 22 and 23. In addition, Disneyland Resort cast members are sharing their love of Disney and the environment by designing unique works of art as part of the annual Environmental Art Challenge. The art is created using waste found in cast members’ work areas ranging from park maps, plastic bottles, bubble wrap and more. Guests can join in on the fun and vote on their favorite art piece at Stage 17 located in the patio area near the Super Store featuring Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure park.

We’re excited about what we’re doing at Disney as we work towards a more sustainable future, and we remain committed to making a difference—not just during Earth Month, but year-round!
