    I'll be at Disney the wk of May 22nd. I have a 2 yo & a 5yo. This will be our 1st time to Animal Kingdom. Can I find out parade times online? Are there any nightly shows there? And can I really bring bottled water in the park?

    Hi Mandi!

    You guys are going to have SO MUCH FUN at Animal Kingdom!

    The parade times (and all the attraction times) can be found when you click PARKS above, then ANIMAL KINGDOM and then CALENDAR in the sidebar. You'll be able to click on the day you'll be there & see all the times! But I already did that for you and the parade is at 3:45! (But double check when you get there--you can pick up a map and times guide at the front gate!)

    There are not nightly shows at Animal Kingdom. This park closes the earliest of any park (usually) because the main attraction is the animals! And when the animals go to sleep, there isn't much action! If you have a park-hopper option on your ticket, though you could hop over to Epcot for IllumiNations or Magic Kingdom for Wishes or Hollywood Studios for Fantasmic. But with a 2 and 5 year old, you'll probably just want to go back to the hotel!

    And yes, you really can bring bottled water into the park! (But if you run out, just ask at any of the counter service restaurants and they'll give you a free cup of water!)

    Have a magical vacation! And let me know if you have any more questions!
