Today’s Picture in the Park is from Animal Kingdom, specifically, the Tree of Life, the structure that is the focal point of the park.  For you Bugs Life fans, the Tree of Life is the home for that show — as for us, we’ll skip it, it’s not fun for us!

Some interesting facts:

  • Did you know that ten artists and three Imagineers worked on the Tree of Life for 18 months?
  • That there are 325 carvings around the tree?
  • That the structure is 145 feet high, and 50 feet wide?
  • Of the four main park structures, the Tree of Life ranks 3rd in height (Cinderella Castle is 190 feet high, Spaceship Earth 180 feet high, and the Sorcerer Mickey Hat is 122 feet high.) registered & protected

Mike has been a Disney fan since his first trip to the Magic Kingdom in 1979 when he was 11 years old. Since that first trip, he has seen parks open, lands close, and attractions come and go, but one thing remains the same, his love for Disney is as strong as ever. His Disney adventures caused him to start My Dreams of Disney because he wanted to document for his family and friends all of the special Disney Memories he has enjoyed with his family, and since that first post in 2010, Mike's hobby has become his passion!
