Animal Kingdom, opened in 1998, is the newest and largest Disney Park in the world. It is also the first Disney Park that is built completely around the concept of animal conservation. Animal Kingdom is made up of seven distinct themed lands all centered around Discovery Island, the park’s central hub. The icon for the park is located on this island and is the Tree of Life, a 14 story tall and 50 foot wide tree that tourists can walk around. There are also 325 animals that have been carved into the bark of the tree making for great photo opportunities if you can get up close.
