We love this amazing Disney theme park… yet we always wished we could stay past sunset. Now, Animal Kingdom has become an evening destination along with Disney’s other three theme parks. Staying open into the night with first-ever attractions, this park has become a favorite place to end the day. Magic of Nature After Dark includes…

Rivers of LIght

  • Rivers of Light show on Discovery River is a celebration of nature with music, lights and special effects set on the backdrop of this tropical lagoon.

Kilimanjaro Safari After Dark

  • Kilimanjaro Safaris After Dark — A nighttime safari is a totally new experience… with the opportunity to view the amazing animals of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve bathed in the light of a late sunset “glow”. Experience the nocturnal habits of many of the animals like lions and wildebeests… plus the addition of two new species, African wild dogs and hyenas.

Tree of Life 1

  • Tree of Life Awakenings — Animal Kingdom’s centerpiece, the iconic Tree of Life, comes to “light” each evening by magical fireflies. The tree awakens to display animated stories of nature’s wonders.
  • Discovery Island Carnivale — The island comes to life in a festive street party with lively music, dancing and stilt walkers. All are invited to join the party in celebrating the community’s love of nature and enjoy exotic new foods.

Harambe Wildlife Parti

  • Harambe Wildlife Parti — Embrace the night in Harambe Village with native African sounds and rhythms performed by street musicians and entertainers. Enjoy tasty local cuisine and festive drinks available in the Harambe Marketplace.

Tree of LIfe

  • Tiffins & Nomad Lounge — Two exciting new destinations overlooking Discovery River Lagoon are now open. Themed around the art of traveling, Tiffins offers upscale global cuisine while Nomad Lounge features tapa-style appetizers with signature drinks and wines from around the world.

Everest Animal Kingdom

  • After Dark Attractions — Imagine Expedition Everest at nighttime with panoramic views across Animal Kingdom… not to mention the twists and turns… and the Yeti… all bathed in darkness! Plus the Kali River Rapids… a wild ride splashing through the darkened rainforest. Dinoland USA is alight with midway games and attractions, including Triceratops Spin and Primeval Whirl.
