    Hi! How do the Kilimanjaro Safaris and tree of life work at night are they available in February? Also do you have an idea if Once upon a time and rivers of light will be in Feb? What about star wars galactic ? Thanks a lot for all your help!

    Hi Carolina,

    Walt Disney World offers so many extraordinary experiences when the sun goes down. At Animal Kingdom, the Kilimanjaro Safari is very different after dark, with special lighting and a new view of the savannah. I suggest experiencing it twice if you can to see the comparison: once in the day and again after dark.

    The Tree of Life Awakenings take place about every 10 minutes nightly from sunset until park close, but there's still no official opening date for Rivers of Light. We're all eagerly awaiting that new show.

    The February schedule isn't posted yet for the Once Upon a Time castle projection show at Magic Kingdom, but I would expect it nightly during your visit. The Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks and projection show at Hollywood Studios is on the nightly schedule for February.

    While you are at Walt Disney World, you can keep up to date on all the entertainment schedules on the My Disney Experience mobile app or with the paper Times Guide available at all parks and resorts.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carolina. Please let us know if you have more questions, and enjoy your vacation!
