    We are part of the Grand Gathering and will be participating in the Epcot (fire works show). How long does the show last? Will we make it from there to the Animal Kingdom before it closes at 10pm? This is our only night to see the A.K. at night.


    Unfortunately, I don't think you'll have much time to visit Animal Kingdom after Illuminations. The show usually begins most nights around 9pm and lasts approximately 15 minutes or so. Since Animal Kingdom closes at 10pm, you'll have a very rushed trip over to the park and will most likely not make it in time.

    My best advice would be to enjoy Illuminations with your group and don't stress about trying to get over to Animal Kingdom. With so much to see and do at Walt Disney World, you just won't be able to fit it all in a single trip. Instead, relax and enjoy your time together. Then, plan Animal Kingdom for your next trip!

    I hope you have a great time!
