Did YOU know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Disney’s Animal Kingdom?
On this date, Earth Day, April 22, 1998, Walt Disney World Resort opened the gates to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park! It was always Walt Disney’s intention to have live animals in a Disney park. In fact, his original plans for Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise included live animals. However, the attraction’s logistics prevented it, and Walt and his Imagineers determined live animals would not provide the consistent show they desired, so Audio-Animatronic creatures were installed instead. (Via The Imagineering Field Guide to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.)
Happy 15th Anniversary to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park!
