Animal Kingdom Night

Summer park hours for Walt Disney World have recently been released and those looking forward to Animal Kingdom’s late night line-up will be pleased to know that starting on May 27th the park will remain open until 11pm every evening.

Guests visiting Animal Kingdom park during the extended hours this Summer will be able to take advantage of a bevy of new options after the sun goes down including:

  • “Jungle Book Alive With Magic– This evening stage show builds on the popularity of Disney’s recently re-imagined Jungle Book and will be packed with music, special effect and Indian theming.  The production will also feature much loved songs from the original animated feature.
  • Tree Of Life – This Disney icon will spring to life once the sun goes down illuminating the park with an awe-inspiring story of wonder.
  • Kiliminjaro Safaris After Dark– Special lighting will allow visitors to view the animals in the savanna under the cover of darkness.
  • Discovery Island Carnivale – Discovery Island comes alive in this nightly party filled with stilt walkers, music and food in a celebration of nature.
  • Harambe Wildlife Party – Harambe Market will be abuzz with African music, cuisine and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Guests also won’t want to miss the opportunity to ride some of your favorite Animal Kingdom attractions late into the evening.  Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids and the midway at Dinoland USA will remain open to visitors.

Watch this space for further updates to Animal Kingdom’s nighttime line-up.  Visitors should also note that events and times may be subject to change.
