Animal Kingdom’s 20th Anniversary Celebration (April 22-May 5)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Animal Kingdom. Does that make anyone else feel old? No, just me. Okay, moving on.

The anniversary celebration begins on Earth Day, April 22nd, so Disney is expanding their Party for the Planet to include a welcome celebration, special PhotoPass opportunities, special merchandise, backstage experiences, and festival food and beverages (rumors are there will be kiosks like the Epcot festivals).

There is also a new behind the scenes tour that includes getting up-close and personal with elephants. Or if fancy food is more your style, Imagineers, animal care and conservation cast members will be hosting dinners at Tiffins.

The Party starts on April 22nd and continues through May 5.

Curious about what a Disney anniversary looks like and tips to enjoy it, check out the recap of Epcot’s 35th here.

runDisney – the Basics

Have you been to Disney and seen people in running gear with medals? Or overheard someone talk about running a race at Disney? If you are asking yourself what is going on or what is runDisney, then you’ve come to the right place.

I finished my third runDisney race recently. And they have all been a complete blast.

Before you think, you must be an insane runner to think that a race is fun. A) I am so not a runner, and B) everyone was having a blast.

This post covers the runDisney basics, so you can decide if a runDisney race is for you.
