    I am going to AK in late January early February because its off season and AK closes early will the river of lights show be available?

    Hi, Natasha!

    Great question!

    Late January/early February is a great time to visit Walt Disney World! There is always something new to look forward, and Rivers of Light is sure to be one of those very special additions when it officially opens at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Park hours are adjusted as dates approach, so you may see a change in the hours offered at AK during your stay. If evening hours are available, check out other nighttime offerings such as Tree of Life Awakenings, Kilimanjaro Safaris nighttime safari tours, evening expeditions on Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain as well as other favorites. Because of the nighttime setting, these experiences feel entirely different than their daytime versions; you will love them!

    Be sure to check the Walt Disney World website as your trip approaches, Natasha, for updated hours and news about Rivers of Light. I cannot wait for my next nighttime visit to Disney Animal Kingdom Park!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Natasha; we love to help!
