    Is Animal Kingdom closing? If this is true, when is the theme park closing

    Hi Shari!

    Since Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite places to visit in all of the Walt Disney World Resort, I would be absolutely crushed if I found out it was closing!  Luckily, there are no plans to close the park!  

    Especially with the new addition of Pandora - The World of Avatar, Disney's Animal Kingdom is definitely one of the most popular parks at the Walt Disney World Resort, and while all of the parks have their own unique magic to experience, Disney's Animal Kingdom Park at Night is full of particularly pixie-dusted experiences!  If you think that the park is incredible during the day, make sure you check it out at night, too!  Pandora - The World of Avatar even transforms into a glowing oasis once the sun goes down!

    If you don't have a lot of time to spend in Disney's Animal Kingdom, but you want to see some of the highlights of the park, make sure you check out the Ultimate Nights of Adventure VIP Tour!  This tour will let you see much of what Disney's Animal Kingdom has to offer in an exciting and efficient way!  

    Remember, throughout all of the parks, attractions are constantly being added and reimagined, so no two visits will be exactly the same!  This does also mean that some attractions may close from time to time, but that being said, you can bet that what replaces the attraction will be more magical than the original!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
