Activities for the day include meeting animal care team members, animal educators, and conservation experts plus watching animal feedings and training experiences.

Guests will also have a chance to attend a meet-and-greet with Walt Disney Imagineer and Portfolio Creative Executive Joe Rohde. Joe will be at the park to sign his artwork that was created for a new Disney Conservation Fund and to sign the new coffee table book, 'The Disney Conservation Fund: Carrying Forward A Conservation Legacy.'

Joe will be at the Discovery Trading Company (formerly Disney Outfitters) from 1-2 p.m. on April 22. Wristbands will be distributed for the event. Find out more info here.

Guests can also check out a new sand sculpture at the park's entrance that is inspired by The Jungle Book live-action film.
