    I wanted to know if the Tree of Life Awakening happens during summer months. We missed it during our past two trips so we were hoping to catch it this trip. The park closes before sunset so I assuming they don't do it during the summer.

    Hiya, Karen, and welcome back to planDisney! I'm so thankful that we've become your trusted source for Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning advice. As you know, my Panelist pals and I are here and happy to help fellow Guests like you!

    Karen, it sounds like you're counting down to an exciting vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, highlighted by a visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. I could spend days there and still see new and different things every time! I know you're hoping to see the Tree of Life Awakening. At this time, since Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park closes before sunset, the Tree of Life Awakening will not take place. Happily, you can see the beautiful carvings up close when you walk the Discovery Island Trails

    I love arriving at Animal Kingdom as early as possible and hopping on the Kilimanjaro Safaris first thing in the morning when the animals are typically active. Throughout the years, I've heard a lion roar, seen baby giraffes roam, and watched hippos bounce gracefully through the water. I'm also a huge fan of DINOSAUR, so that's on the top of my must-do list. 

    Karen, have you had a chance to stop by Nomad Lounge? With refreshing cocktails and delicious snacks, it's a great place to relax in the afternoon. Open up the My Disney Experience Mobile App and join the walk-up list - it's quick and easy! 

    I hope you have a wonderful time during your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by planDisney with any other questions you have!

    See you real soon!
