Disney's Animal Kingdom Opening Day Leadership Team open Time Capsule and recreate Photo 25 years on

Today, Saturday, April 22 on the 25th Anniversary of Disney's Animal Kingdom, members of the opening leadership team joined Jeff Vahle, President of Walt Disney World Resort backstage to unearth and open a time capsule which Bob Lamb (the park’s first vice president) burried in the ground, with a plan to open it together on the 25th anniversary. and that's just what they did today, as well as recreating the opening day photograph of the occasion back on April 22, 1997.


After opening the time capsule, everyone had a great time looking through the items, which included a piece of engineering hardware – an actuator, to be exact – from a particularly memorable pre-opening project.


This trip down memory lane was a reminder that none of it would have been made possible without the many people who dedicated their time and efforts to bringing Disney’s Animal Kingdom to fruition.
