    Do you know if Disney intends to have rides open late at Animal Kingdom with the new Rivers of Light show or will it be independent of rides until Avatar land opens?

    Hello, Drew!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and for sending us your question. We are all so excited about the new “Rivers of Light” nighttime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

    I am happy to report that there will be many new and exciting things happening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom “after dark”! There are plans for dining experiences, innovative shows, light spectaculars and Attractions during evening hours.

    Currently, it has been announced that the following Attractions will continue running into the nighttime hours:

         •  Kilimanjaro Safaris
         •  Expedition Everest
         •  Kali River Rapids

    I am especially excited about enjoying Kilimanjaro Safaris while touring the Harambe Wildlife Reserve in a whole new light!

    Quick Tip: Visit the ‘Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park at Night’ page for information on all of the entertainment, Attractions and dining that will be available very soon.

    Drew, I hope I have answered your question and that you will send me any more questions you have before, during or after your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Wishing You a Wildly Magical Visit,
