It’s the last week of Flower and Garden Festival, and Animal Kingdom’s nighttime show has gone through a rewrite. Here’s what you need to know for this week at Walt Disney World.

News

  • Rivers of Light, the nighttime theater show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, has gone through a rewrite. Since its opening, reception of it has been lukewarm. Will the new version appeal to more people? Only time will tell, but you can read about the details here.
  • The nights are heating up at Typhoon Lagoon, and not just because Florida has relocated to its summer home on the surface of the sun. H2O Glow Nights are now available on select nights through August 24. See all the information here.
  • Epcot’s International Flower and Garden festival ends June 3, 2019. There’s food, merchandise, concerts, and of course flowers and greenery. Read details on the official page here and check out this Saturday SIX for more reasons why this festival is such a feast for the eyes.

Weather

For the most current weather conditions, click here. One question we get often is whether elevated rain chances mean it will rain all week. Short answer, it won’t rain all the time and it won’t rain everywhere, but we’re moving into our summer rainy season.
