Tree of Life Awakenings & Beacon of Magic Return to Disney’s Animal Kingdom October 1st

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

According to Disney, the Tree of Life awakenings and Beacon of Magic projection show will return to Disney’s Animal Kingdom on October 1st. The nighttime projection shows haven’t been shown at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for months because Disney simply didn’t keep the theme park open late enough for it to get dark enough to present the shows.

With the sun setting earlier (and a new fiscal year beginning), Disney will once again present the Tree of Life Awakenings and Beacons of Magic projection show starting October 1st at 7:45pm.

According to data from, the Tree of Life Awakenings have not been presented since April 26, 2022.
