    Hi, we will be at Animal Kingdom at October 1ST , closing hours is 20:00pm, will the tree of life will present the lightning colurs show after dark , and also will Pandora area will be illuminated after dark?

    Welcome back, Yaron!

    Thank you for sending us this great question; it is always lovely to see my fellow Wilderness Explorers again. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is my favourite theme park, not only because of its attractions and general beauty but because the sight of the theme park at night is breathtaking. 

    I completely understand why you want to see attractions such as Pandora - The World of Avatar at night as it becomes illuminated from its bioluminescent fauna and flora. In October, when you will be visiting, sunset may be as early as 7:10 P.M., so you should be able to experience the beauty of the theme park at night! Indeed, the Tree of Life Awakenings typically occur after dark and every ten minutes until park closure, so you should also be able to experience these beautiful projections.

    Now, things sometimes do not go according to plan, so if you cannot stay until sunset, do not fret! The famous attraction Na'vi River Journey, located in Pandora - The World of Avatar, also gives you the experience of being on Pandora at night. Indeed, the boat ride takes you through the illuminated jungle in a relaxing and breathtaking journey that is perfect for getting a break from walking around the park. Plus, you may even encounter some Na'vis while going down the river! This attraction is one of my absolute favourite rides at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I hope that you and your Ohana will get to experience it. 

    I hope this was helpful, Yaron, and that you will have the most wonderful vacation on your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach back out. At planDisney, we do not like to say goodbye as it is way too sad and final, so instead we say "Kwaherini" which means "go well" in Swahili!

    Kwaherini, go well and go wild,
