    When will the schedule for the new night time experiences all be updated for Animal Kingdom. They re showing beginning May 26 that night time shows will start and they show the AK open till 11pm already, but only the Safari has late time FPs available.

    Hi Ella! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There is so much excitement and anticipation surrounding all of the new Nighttime entertainment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. Beginning Memorial Day weekend a lot of new entertainment options and even restaurants will come to life including the Tree of Life, Discovery Island Carnivale, and Tiffins restaurant. One of the things I am looking forward to most is Kilimanjaro Safaris at night! I have always imagined that a nighttime safari may offer even more amazing opportunities to see animals in their wild habitat.

    Now with all of that excitement Disney’s Imagineers are still working on some of the details. There is a lot to be done and at Disney they want all of the shows and entertainment that guests like you and I see to be nothing short of perfection! There is not date yet announced for Rivers of Light and there also isn’t a lot of detail regarding FastPass+ offerings. My best advice to you is to follow the Disney Parks Blog for all of the most up to date announcements and new offerings! Also keep checking the Walt Disney World Resort website as it is updated often!

    I hope that you have an Unforgettable time!
