    I see that Animal Kingdom's park hours are extended starting Memorial Day weekend this year. We are going to be at that park on May 29th. Can anyone tell me if the Tree of Life will be lite up that day, or is it starting on May 30th?

    Hi, Scott!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited you have the chance to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Park over Memorial Day weekend.!

    According to the Walt Disney World Resort website, most of the new Animal Kingdom night experiences start the same weekend you plan to visit. That includes the amazing new display on the Tree of Life. I will also recommend experiencing Expedition Everest in the dark. It adds an extra bit of fun on one of my very favorite attractions at Disney World.

    I know you are going to have an unforgettable time and I'm thrilled you get to be some of the first people to to experience Animal Kingdom at night!

    Let me know if you have any other questions. I'll be here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help!
