No more 9 to 5 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Coming this summer you will be able to enjoy the Animal Kingdom like never before. Here are some of the things you will be able to do this summer:
Rivers of Light: Although the new river show is delayed indefinitely it is still expected to debut this summer. On Discovery River you will see a new show like none other! Disney explains the show like this, “[Rivers of Light] combines never-before-seen DisneyNature footage, live performances, theatrical imagery, a soaring original score and innovative special effects.”
Nighttime Awakenings: The Tree of Life comes alive after dark with this new show, using projection and lights. Might as well let it speak for itself, check out this link to watch some test footage of it on youtube! Nighttime Awakenings was originally planned to open April 22 but has been delayed to sometime in May more than likely.
Discovery Island Carnivale: A dance party in the streets of Discovery Island. Starting as the sun is setting come to the island to see the Viva Gaia Street Band and dance along with performers. The carnival starts from one end of the island to the other ending at the stage where the party really gets going. Be sure to check out the musician playing the Paraguayan harp!
Harambe Wildlife Parti: Also starting in the late afternoon with the Burudika Band taking the stage in Harambe’s Old Square. But, don’t worry there’s more! Venture further in to find drum circles, the Karibu Sisters who dance sing and play music, Harambe’s finest soccer players showing their skills and playing a pick-up game, and acrobats putting on live performances!
Kilimanjaro Safaris – Nocturnal Encounters: Soon you will be able to enjoy a safari at dusk, something we have never been able to do before. Word is the safari will be in a perpetual sunset using special lighting effects! This is your chance to see how the animals interact when the lights go out.
Favorite Attractions Open Later: Since the park is open later, so are the attractions we all love. Now we can find out what its like to ride the rapids at night, and see high a top Animal Kingdom on Mount Everest!It will be exciting to see all the new nighttime festivities at Animal Kingdom; there will definitely be a different vibe in the park!
