    Will Animal Kingdom offer evening hours in September? As of now it looks like September 5 is the last day. We will be there the week after. Trying to plan dinner for that day, and our Fast pass+ date is coming up next month. Thanks for all you do.

    Hi Terri! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It is so great to hear from you again. It makes us so happy to see guests coming back to visit us again and again! We truly love what we do here on the Panel so thank you so much for your questions! We really look forward to continuing to help you plan unforgettable vacations!

    I am so excited about all of the new nighttime happenings at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. I can’t wait to experience all of the new offerings and entertainment options! I think that the two things that I am looking most forward to is Kilimanjaro Safaris at night and seeing the Tree of Life come to life. I get chills just thinking about it!

    Since all of these experiences are new and they have just recently started rolling everything out, extension of the nighttime hours have not been announced yet. I know that these offerings are incredibly popular so I am hoping that they decide to extend the hours very soon. For the latest and most up to date news make sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog. They are the best source of information for all things Disney Parks related! You also can keep checking the Theme Park Operating Hours Calendar for updates to operating hours if applicable.

    As someone who is also planning on a vacation in September I am holding my breath waiting for an announcement. I am keeping my fingers crossed every day so that I too can plan my evenings! Keep checking back and know that I will be checking right with you!

    I hope that you have a magical time!
