April is Earth Month, which of course is a big deal for Disney. After all, Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened on Earth Day (April 22) in 1998! Last year we were gypped because Walt Disney World was closed all month. This year, you can celebrate through the My Disney Experience App and the Play Disney Parks App, you don’t have to be at Walt Disney World. Here’s all that you need to know from Disney Parks Blog.

How well do you know the sounds of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park? In a special new series of mini games, listen closely and test your ears to see if you can identify the species whose sounds delight our guests every day.
Plus, in a special episode of Disney Parks Wild Sights, meet the Nigerian dwarf goats of Kilimanjaro Safaris!

Hear from the Disney teams who helped create it and see how we can all take steps to protect animals’ habitats in our own communities and around the planet we all call home.
