The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life, a sculpted 14-story 145-foot-tall, 50-foot-wide tree, is the centerpiece and icon in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.

There are some 325 animals carved in the bark of this massive tree attraction.

Located on Discovery Island, roughly in the center of the park, the tree is engineered from a refitted oil platform. Under the Tree is a theatre featuring It's Tough to be a Bug, a 3-D film hosted by Flik, from Disney·Pixar's A Bug's Life.

Ten artists and three Imagineers worked full-time for 18 months to create the 325 animal carvings on The Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is topped with more than 103,000 translucent, five-shades-of-green leaves that were individually placed and actually blow in the wind. The tree has 12 Main branches, 45 Secondary branches, 756 Smaller branches and 8000 In branches and its leaves are made out of Kynar.

The Tree of Life Awakens

From the 30th May 2016, the theme park’s iconic Tree of Life will undergo extraordinary “awakenings” throughout the evening as the animal spirits are brought to life by magical fireflies that reveal colorful stories of wonder and enchantment. High-tech projections of nature scenes take on a magical quality as they appear to dramatically emanate from within the Tree of Life.
