If you’re looking for a thrilling whitewater adventure at Walt Disney World Resort, look no further than Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You’ll want to note, however, this attraction is now opening one hour later than the park opens.

The Disney World website has updated to show that the operating hours for Kali River Rapids are now 9 am to 7 pm. Ride operating hours are available through July 16th. Disney’s Animal Kingdom park opens at 8 am and closes at 7 pm. Park hours have been released through the end of July and the park opens at 8 am each day.

We aren’t sure the reasoning for opening the attraction an hour after the park opens. It could be due to the line being too small that early in the day. I don’t know about you, but I don’t rush to get on Kali River Rapids first thing in the day.
