    I'm considering purchasing After Hours passes for AK on April 22."Tree of Life Awakenings" isn't scheduled that day, and there is only 1 Rivers of Light show. Are there unlisted showings for the After Hours?

    Hello, my fellow Wilderness Explorer! I’m so excited to hEAR that you will possibly be attending a Disney After Hours Event Christopher! Disney After Hours are special evenings filled with tons of fun. You can experience more Magic in less time with shorter wait times on select attractions. You will also be able to enjoy the park for an additional 3 hours after regular park hours. In the midst of all the fun, don’t forget to refuel for the rest of the night with ice cream novelties, popcorn and select beverages included with the cost of admission! Your evening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be unforgettable.

    After consulting with the leaders of Pride Rock, I was able to find a list of attractions and entertainment that will be available during the event! Both the Tree of Life Awakenings and Rivers of Light: We Are One, will be available to view and enjoy! Keep in mind depending on outside factors, attractions and entertainment are subject to change without notice. I attended a very wet and rainy Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party this year, and both the parade and firework show I was wanting to watch still happened. However, if I remember correctly they did modify the parade for the weather. My last April trip was amazing though, I would probably say it was my favorite time to visit. The weather was great and we only had one evening where it sprinkled.

    As you continue to plan for this awesome After Hours Event, be sure to make note of the attractions you want to experience. My family and I start our trips off with a “game plan” that usually turns into a guideline because we decided to just live in the Magic and let the kids take charge. Once you arrive at your selected Disney After Hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park Event, you should receive an event specific guide map. The guide map will include event specific attractions, foods, and of course entertainment times! Have a Roaring time and please visiting us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have more questions before you arrive!
