    Hi Panel! Will be at WDW 1st week of Aug. What time does entertainment on the Boardwalk start? And what time does the animal viewing w/ night vision at AKL start? Trying to book ADR's are entertainment!! Thanks for all your help you're great!!

    Hi Shari! Disney's BoardWalk is home to a wide range of entertainment activities that may be enjoyed throughout the day. For example, many of the stores and restaurants on the BoardWalk open at 6:30 a.m., and remain open until 11 p.m. You may rent watercraft at the Lakeside Marina from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. daily. Alternatively, pedal your way around Crescent Lake on a pretty fringed surrey bike. Rentals are available until 10:30 p.m nightly. BoardWalk Busters, the jogglers, magicians, sword swallowers, strolling musicians, and other entertainers, can generally be found outdoors on the BoardWalk Thursdays through Saturdays from 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. The nightclubs are open until much later. For example, Atlantic Dance Hall is open until 1:00 a.m. and Jellyrolls is open until 2:00 a.m.


    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my family's favorite resort in all of Walt Disney World. This resort offers a wide range of recreational activities for visiting guests. Animal Program activities include great options to enjoy up close encounters with exotic animals. These include Night Vision viewing of animals featuring special night vision goggles. This activity takes place nightly, weather permitting, from 9 to 11 p.m. Cast Members lead guests from behind the Jambo House Pool to the savannah to view the animals. Looking through night vision goggles is just like you see in the movies, where everything looks green! Animal Programs are subject to change so be sure to check with lobby Cast Members for a complete list of programs offered during your stay.



    Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. Have a memorable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
