    what days does the new night time lights show at Animal kingdom run?

    Hello Julie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I was finally able to see the Rivers of Light Nighttime Experience for the first time this past August and was blown away. Even after only one viewing, I think it offers such a unique nighttime experience that it may already be my favorite nighttime show at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Currently, Walt Disney World Resort has released Park Hours and a Schedule for major shows that lists times up until the second week of May 2018. Throughout that schedule the Rivers of Light Nighttime Experience is scheduled for at least one viewing every night of the week. During peak seasons, the Rivers of Light Nighttime Experience often has two shows each night at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park has become a fabulous evening experience what with the opening of Pandora: The World of Avatar and the inclusion of nighttime attractions and entertainment that includes the Rivers of Light Nighttime Experience.

    Be sure to take a look at all of the wonderful offerings and plan to spend some time at the wildest after-dark Theme Park experience at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a Wild Time!
