    Hi Angelique!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The new nighttime experiences at Disney's Animal Kingdom are truly amazing! I have had the opportunity to experience them twice now and the park is a unique experience after dark. It really feels as if the park comes alive once the sun sets, with new sights and sounds throughout the park and there is absolutely nothing like riding Expedition Everest at night! There has been no indication that the nighttime offerings at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be temporary, but as you note, park hours have not been extended to include later evening hours past the summer. In my experience, it is very common to see a change in park hours as my vacation date gets closer, particularly an extension of hours to include later hours in the evening and I expect that is exactly what will happen at Disney's Animal Kingdom. So I recommend continuing to watch park hours for changes and keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to stay updated with the latest Walt Disney World Resort news!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
