    Im coming to WDW May 25th, Do we need a seperate tix or reservation for the Tree of Life Awakenings? And what time does that start?

    Hi Melanie,

    You are going to love the Tree of Life Awakenings! It's so amazing to see the different short stories with music and light projected on the Tree of Life. There are several variations. They start shortly after dark and continue about every 10 minutes.

    There's no need to stand in line or make any special arrangements. Just find a place to stand facing the Tree of Life in the open area between Island Mercantile and Discovery Trading Company and watch the magic unfold.

    Don't miss the other entertainment as Animal Kingdom comes alive at night, including lots of music, dancing and more. If you're an Expedition Everest fan, make sure you ride it again after dark. It's an entirely new experience.

    Thanks for stopping in at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melanie. We love offering tips and recommendations to help you plan a Walt Disney World vacation that's just right for your family. Please let us know if we can help in any other way. Enjoy!
