    We are visiting Disney World in December--will Animal Kingdom be open at night during that month?

    Hi Ruth!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where we enjoy helping you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Disney's Animal Kingdom at night is breathtaking! I just checked the park hours for December and it seems that the Disney's Animal Kingdom will be closing the majority of the days at 5:00 p.m. I can tell you from my frequent travels to the Walt Disney World Resort, park hours are subject to change and I have seen them change where the park is open longer. I would recommend that you continue to check the Park Hours page as you finalize your plans. 

    Did you know?: Staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of benefits. One of my favorites is the Extra Magic Hours where Guests can enjoy the parks before they open to the general public and after they close to the general public. Additionally, Disney Resort Guests can make their FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before check-in when you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation!  Be sure to download your My Disney Experience App for your smart phone!

    Happy Planning!
