    I purchased a book The complete Walt disney world 2017. In the section of the animal kingdom It talks about The Jungle book:Alive with magic. Can you tell me more about this?

    Hello, Darlene! 

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic was a nighttime entertainment offering on a limited time engagement. It is currently not running, but I have some exciting news to share! Disney’s Animal Kingdom is preparing for a brand-new evening experience called Rivers of Light. The official start date hasn't been announced, but keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. I have a feeling it will be soon! 

    This new nighttime show will have elements of water, sound, and light, fused together with Disney magic. With innovative, never before seen technology, this new experience will captivate audiences of all ages. I for one cannot wait to enjoy this new experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! 

    Thanks to these new nighttime experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you can now enjoy some of your favorite attractions in a new light. Kilimanjaro Safari at nighttime is really something, but my new favorite is riding Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain in the evening. Make sure, as you climb up the mountain, you look all around once you get close to the top. You can almost see all of the Walt Disney World Resort from there. It’s amazing! 

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope you come back again and see us soon!
