    We will not be coming to Disney till March. I would like to know if you need a special ticket to experience Animal Kingdom at night.

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shirley!

    March is a great time to escape the cold temps and snowy nights in Pennsylvania by heading to Walt Disney World; great choice!

    When you get to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you will be amazed at all that there is to see and do. There is truly no other place quite like it on Earth, so be sure to enjoy each vista, each creature, each moment while you are there. I am so excited for you!

    You'll be happy to know that the magic now extends into the evenings at Animal Kingdom, and that all of the fun and festivities are included with your park admission. Disney's Animal Kingdom Park at Night is an entirely different experience than daytime touring, so be sure you have at least one night to check out all of the magic. Be sure to try Expedition Everest both in the daylight and at night. You won't believe the difference when the track is dark! Kilimanjaro Safaris, too, takes on a whole different feel when your tour embarks in the night hours. Of course, Tree of Life Awakenings is truly breathtaking; you'll want to linger a little longer to see what happens next!

    There is so much happening at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at night, Shirley, so be sure to check back on Walt Disney World's website and Disney Parks Blog for updates on the magic during your stay!

    Send more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
