Night Experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Start May 27th

By  |  0 Comments

So much is going on at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. New shows and attractions are opening up this year. Here is a quick update on what’s going on!







If you are visiting Animal Kingdom starting on May 27, 2016, you will be able to experience the magic of nature on display at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at night – for the first time ever! There will be nightly awakenings of the park’s iconic Tree of Life. Animal spirits will be brought to life each night by magical fireflies that reveal colorful stories of wonder and enchantment along with other amazing sights at the tree.

On May 28, The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic live show will debut at the park.  The show will feature memorable moments from the film, including the iconic Shere Khan, and will be filled with music and special effects that celebrate the movie and classic songs, infused with an Indian influence.










After the sun sets, you also will be able to explore Kilimanjaro Safaris and see the nighttime behavior of the wildlife and better tune in to the unique vocalization of the animals like never before.  Among the new experiences, the village of Harambe in Africa will become the place to enjoy “Wildlife Parti” and the spirited community of Discovery Island will come together to celebrate their love of the natural world with the Discover Island Carnivale.

FastPass+ and dining packages for Disney’s Animal Kingdom night experiences will become available beginning tomorrow, May 21.










Also, we wanted to share a quick update that development work continues on our future night show, “Rivers of Light.” This show will depict an ancient lantern festival guided by two storytellers who call forth four animal Spirit Guides. The Spirit Guides return at different points during the show to lead the audience on a journey through the Rivers of Light.
