A Tree of Wonder.....

While themeing at Disney should never surprise anyone, the Tree of Life has always been a true masterpiece among Disney's attractions since the park first opened.

While seeing the huge tree from the entrance is neat, the true experience comes from getting closer to the tree and noticing the detail that has been placed on every inch of the tree. Carvings of various animals and the placement of leaves throughout the top of the tree give a shock and awe feeling each time you see the beautiful monument to life.
