    Does the Awakenings light show run every night through the summer (when the sun sets later)?

    Hi Anthony! Welcome to planDisney.

    Are you ready for a "wild" time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park? I am so excited to share with you Festival of the Lion King is back. Do not miss this larger-than-life production combining music, tumble monkeys, and puppetry. And what visit to this theme park would be complete without a journey on Kilimanjaro Safaris? What I love about this attraction is that no two rides are the same. Try an early morning quest to catch the lion's roar, but a later adventure in the day has the nocturnal animals stirring.

    Tree of Life Awakenings is truly a sight to behold and one of my absolute favorites. I adore that the show has been integrated into Beacons of Magic as part of the special offerings of The World's Most Magical Celebration. You can catch this show after dark about every 10 minutes. The tricky part with summer and a late sunset is that Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park does not traditionally stay open late due to animal care and well-being. Make sure to refer to your My Disney Experience Mobile App for the day's offerings or ask a Cast Member on the day of your visit.

    If you are looking for a break during your park day, I highly recommend enjoying a beverage and snack in the peacefulness of Nomad Lounge. No reservations are needed. You can join a walk-up list right from the app by hitting the "+" sign on the center bottom of the homepage and selecting "Check Dining Availability." Enter your party size, click on the date, and select "Now." You will be placed in a virtual queue and receive a notification when your table is ready. The Tiffin Bread Service paired with any of their unique cocktails is a fantastic choice.

    Keeping it Magical,
