    I haven't been to AK in over 15 years and will be traveling with our 7 & 3 y/o. We plan to spend only one day at AK. What in your opinion are the must-sees?Best places for when the mid-day heat hits to get some quiet time and AC?

    Hi Amy,

    So glad to know you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this coming June. How exciting!

    There are so many new experiences waiting for you at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and now with all-new nighttime experiences. The Tree of Life Awakens at night like never before, with incredible special effects. Experience Kilimanjaro Safaris in a perpetual sunset with Nocturnal Encounters. And embrace the magic of nature at Rivers of Light, a nighttime spectacle of music, water projections and special effects.

    But wait, there's more! A completely new land awaits you. Pandora - The World of Avatar will transport you to this wonderful world based on the movie. You must experience it both during the day and at night. Expected to open in late May, I cannot wait for my next trip to experience it.

    One last tip: two must-see Broadway style shows await you. Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical are amazing experiences, and perfect to escape the afternoon sun. See you real soon!
