    Hello: My daughter and grandchildren will be visiting WDW 4/16-22/17. When is Earth Week celebrated in the parks, particularly AK due to Rafiki's Planet Watch where I heard Jiminy Cricket may appear? Thanks bunches!

    Hello, Pati,

    It sounds like you have a fantastic trip planned to Walt Disney World, and it is nearly here!  While you are visiting, you'll be able to celebrate Earth Month since there are Earth Day related happenings throughout all of April. At Epcot, there is the International Flower & Garden Festival with many different events that you can participate in.  At Disney's Animal Kingdom, there will be special events April 21-23, 2017, from Disneynature.  As of today, there have not been any details shared about Jiminy Cricket making an appearance this year, and there isn't any mention of it in the Park Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom on Earth Day either.  However, further news and updates about Earth Day could still be released as the date grows closer, so I'd encourage you to check back at the Disney Parks Blog

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
