On April 13 and 14, Disney Channel stars Debby Ryan, Bella Thorne, Zendaya, Ross Lynch and Laura Marano took over the Walt Disney World Resort, in Orlando, Florida. They were there—along with more than 100 youth leaders from around the world—for the Disney Kids and Nature Celebration.

The two-day event recognized youth efforts to help protect the planet and honored organizations that work to connect kids to nature. Attendees had the chance to cheer on their favorite service organizations at the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Awards Ceremony, line the red carpet for the world premiere of Disneynature's Chimpanzee and participate in Disney's Friends for Change Youth Summit.
