    Planning our trip for 11/16-11/21/16. Will Animal Kingdom be staying open past 5pm during this time to offer any of the new night time events and shows I have been reading about? Thanks.

    Hi, Gail!

    You must be so excited for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World!

    I just got back from my most recent visit, and was lucky enough to be able to see some of the nighttime experiences that have been added to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Everything changes when the sun goes down, and it is truly spectacular!

    If you take a look at the Animal Kingdom link provided above, click on the calendar icon that's to the right of the page, just below the main photo. You'll see park hours listed there, but these are frequently adjusted, and will be changed accordingly.

    As we get closer to your stay, I'm sure you'll see expanded evening hours for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Don't miss a view or two of the Tree of Life Awakenings, a nighttime safari and an eerily-dark encounter with the Yeti on Expedition Everest. Truly, Imagineers have outdone themselves in enhancing Animal Kingdom with features that make the park come alive at night--it's truly magical!

    Check that calendar for updates to park hours, Gail, as I am sure that you'll have a blast exploring Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park after dark.

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