In 1998, this park became the fourth of Disney's Orlando projects, a vast project that pays living tribute to Walt Disney's passions of conservation and the environment. Six man-made habitats present a thrilling collection of animals and plants from around the globe. The central hub of Discovery Island is the most well-known, with its man-made, sculpted Baobab Tree. Guests can go on a near-authentic safari around the fictional village of Harambe in the Africa habitat, while Asia includes its own Everest expedition, a mountainous roller coaster ride. There's also Dinoland, with its prehistoric wonders and its presentation of Finding Nemo – The Musical, a live action stage show of the universally loved Pixar movie.
