    Hello - We are going to be at WDW in the parks from 8/25/17 to 8/28/17. AK closes every night at 7. Will we be able to see Tree of Life Awakenings and Rivers of Light?

    Hi, Cheryl!

    While park hours are posted 6 months out, the hours are subject to change. With all of the excitement happening in Disney's Animal Kingdom, I would guess their park hours will be extended until past 7:00pm.

    What exactly is new at Disney's Animal Kingdom you ask? Well that is a great question, Cheryl! As you mentioned, there is Rivers of Light. I simply cannot wait to see this much anticipated nighttime spectacular! You may want to reserve a Rivers of Light dining package that includes a meal either at Tusker House or Tiffins, then premium seating for the show.

    And the super big news of the summer will be the opening of Pandora - The World of Avatar. Keep checking the website and the Disney Parks Blog for updates. This has been years in the making and is certain to be truly amazing.

    Have a magical day (and night!) when you visit Disney's Animal Kingdom this summer!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
