A while back, the news came out that from May 27 through July 4, Disney’s Animal Kingdom would be open for extra Evening Extra Magic Hours. Resort Guests would have the exclusive opportunity to be in the park from 11:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. to enjoy the beauty and splendor that is Pandora – The World of Avatar at night.  Well, due to the expected heavy crowds, Disney has announced that a few more attractions will be open, in addition to the attractions found in Pandora.

Guests will now also be able to experience the following attractions during these extra late night hours:

Expedition Everest: Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Primeval Whirl
TriceraTop Spin
Fossil Fun Games
Tree of Life awakenings
Rivers of Light
Discovery Island Carnivale


In addition, select Food and Beverage locations and Merchandise options will be available, as well.

Looks like it will be a good time to visit the park if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel and plan on visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

      My finger hit post before I was done.

      Do we know the times of the other rivers of light show(s)?

      Having more attractions open should help disburse crowds during those hours

    This is great! You’re always up to date with the latest news, Rikki 🙂

    On a completely unrelated note, has anyone else noticed that Erin Foster has stopped posting on the blog? Her articles used to be some of my favorites.
