    Going to Animal Kingdom in April 2020. We plan to watch Rivers of Light at 8:30pm (only showing) and the park closes at 9. Since it won’t be dark before the show, does Disney allow people to walk through Pandora just after close to see the nighttime view?

    Hey there, Sherri! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your vacation to Walt Disney World.

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is my wife's favorite, so we’re certainly up to date when it comes to the rare animals and world-class entertainment at the park.

    After recently attending Rivers of Light: We Are One, we absolutely made our way through Pandora - The World of Avatar. While I can’t guarantee that you’ll have a similar experience, I certainly don’t think you’ll run into any issues. After all, this beautiful land is breathtaking at night and I’m sure the Cast Members from Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) will want you to experience the unforgettable floating mountains and bioluminescent forest.

    While you’re at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, be sure to check out the Yak & Yeti Restaurant located within Asia for lunch or dinner. It’s a restaurant with offerings that I still crave!

    If you have any other questions please let us know. Have a magical day!
