    Will the night time hours for Animal Kingdom extend into October? I would love to plan accordingly, but want to make sure I pick the day for extended hours (11 p.m.) in Animal Kingdom. I do not see it posted, but really want to nail down my itinerary.

    Hi, Penny!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I totally understand how you want to finalize all of your plans at Walt Disney World Resort. I usually have my plans months and months ahead of time. This year is a little different because of all of the new offerings at Walt Disney World Resort - especially at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The new night experiences are very new and the schedules are coming out a little later than usual. 

    I'd recommend keeping a close eye on any changes posted to the Disney Parks calendar and for any additional announcements on the Disney Parks Blog. If you're like me, I'd put together an itinerary assuming the schedule posted in October is what we will be able to work with and make alterations to the plans if any times change.

    Let me know if I can help with any extra planning questions that pop up before your arrival!
