    Hello, we will be at Animal kingdom on Sept. 10. I see that is closes at 5pm that day. Will we not be able to see the new night time shows then? It is open until 11pm the Saturday before. Thank you!

    Hello, Jennifer!

    I am sure you are excited to see the new nighttime experiences at Disney's Animal Kingdom. My family sure is. These new offerings just debuted a few weeks ago, and as Cast Members continue to work out the kinks, it is possible that fall schedules need to be adjusted. My advice is to keep an eye on the online entertainment schedule as hours of operation are always subject to change. Sometimes the theme parks close early for private events, which could be the reason for the early closure this day. If possible, you may want to consider going to Animal Kingdom another day to ensure that you can experience the new offerings such as a sunset adventure on Kilimanjaro Safaris and the awakening of the Tree of Life

    I wish I had better information for you as you plan your upcoming visit. Be sure to subscribe to the Disney Parks Blog E-Newsletter so you can stay up to date on announcements and new experiences coming to Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Have a magical day!
