    Hi! I'm visiting early December and are trying to make plans. Do night hours for Animal Kingdom going to be extended through December? The park hours in the website still has the 5:00pm closing.

    Hi Dalkya! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    December is one of my favorite times of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. There are so many beautiful holiday decorations on display at the Theme Parks and Resort hotels. One of my favorite events is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. We love sipping hot chocolate and watching it snow on Main Street, U.S.A. The kids love the character dance party and the parade is so much fun.

    I am also really excited about all of the new nighttime happenings at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. I can’t wait to experience all of the new entertainment options. I am looking most forward to seeing the Tree of Life come to life. Since all of these experiences are new and they have just recently started rolling everything out, extension of the nighttime hours have not been announced yet. I know that these offerings are incredibly popular so I am hoping that they decide to extend the hours very soon. I always like to suggest following the Disney Parks Blog. They are the best source of information for all things Disney Parks related. 

    I hope that you have a magical time!
