Last year, the Disney Conservation Fund unveiled a philanthropic strategy to help protect the planet by collaborating with leading nonprofit organizations that help threatened wildlife and inspire a lifelong love for nature in young people.

Research shows that children who are exposed to nature are healthier and happier, and it is widely believed that these outdoor experiences lead kids to care about the planet during their lifetime. If you are looking for ways you and your family can explore and connect with nature during your next vacation to a Walt Disney Park or Resort, we’ve got you covered! Take a peek below at some of the adventurous experiences available to you and your family.


We also have some thrilling news for you today! While we love celebrating Earth Day on April 22, we will be partying for the planet all weekend this year! Join us at Disney’s Animal Kingdom April 21-23 for unique, inspiring and educational encounters throughout the park during Party for the Planet presented by Disneynature.

We’ll be sharing more specific details about these engaging in-park offerings as we get closer to this exciting weekend. Until then, we invite you to take a look back at last year’s Party for the Planet presented by Disneynature!
