LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —Friday is Arbor Day, and Disney Parks Blog is going back in time to show us a photo from 1975. Mickey Mouse, Chip and Dale planted a tree at Walt Disney World Resort in observance of Arbor Day that year.

Thousands of trees are currently being cared for at Walt Disney World Resort. Horticulture specialists and arborists at Disney take the time each day to make sure each plant is healthy and vibrant.

Take some time tomorrow to walk outside and enjoy nature. Maybe even hug a tree!

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —New details have been released on Toy Story Land, including the world of Andy’s backyard with your favorite “Toy Story” characters, Woody and Buzz.

There are two new themed attractions being developed for Toy Story Land.

The first — Slinky Dog Dash — will be a family coaster attraction you’ll want to ride again and again. The attraction features a coaster track that Andy has built all over his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit. “Toy Story” fans know that Andy has a pretty amazing imagination, so he’s combined it with some of his other toys, according to Disney Imagineer Kathy Mangum.

By Holly Ecimovic

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —Exactly 10 years ago today, Expedition Everest: Legend of The Forbidden Mountain opened its doors to offer a wild race of adventure for park guests, according to Disney Parks Blog.

Many have said this popular ride is one of the most visually stunning attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

A guest’s journey to Mount Everest really begins the moment they enter the queue, which offers a treasure trove of cultural and historical detail. Along the way, guests pass a small temple, a general store and a museum that showcases past investigations into the yeti’s existence. Finally, they arrive at Himalayan Escapes – Tours and Expeditions office and board a train for a tour of the famed Mount Everest. But after climbing rocky cliffs and racing through narrow caves, the plan goes awry when the train encounters a twisted piece of track, and suddenly sends the group plunging backward into the darkness…

Well, you’ll have to experience it for yourself!
