    Hello! We visited Walt Disney World last week and were able to enjoy Pandora until midnight on each night. During our stay this coming October it shows that Animal Kingdom will only be open until 7:30. Will we not be able to enjoy Pandora lit up at night?

    Kaltxì Tiffany,

    Thank you for stopping by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A fall vacation sounds wonderful.

    Pandora - The World of Avatar is amazing. So glad you were able to experience it recently. I also had the chance to explore the Valley of Mo'ara last June and it is beautiful, both during the day and at night. Na'vi River Journey was mesmerizing, and I found a new favorite attraction in Avatar Flight of Passage.

    Towards the end of October, sunset comes around 7:30 p.m., the same time of the currently scheduled closing time of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Typically, park hours are expanded seasonally, and I am pretty sure they will be extended in order to experience the bioluminescent rainforest at night. Keep an eye to the Park Hours & Calendar and the Times Guide when you get onsite for up to date information.

    One last tip: be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to get instant access to Park hours, attraction wait times, and even make or change FastPass+ and dining reservations. Sivako!
