It’s summer, park hours are extended, heat is in full bloom so there are so many reasons why you should make sure to head out to the parks at night. But I want to specifically start this mini-series off with Animal Kingdom Park…why? Because it has undergone quite the transformation. For those of you that are Walt Disney World newbies, Animal Kingdom Park is the only park that operates on a very strict schedule and this is because of the wildlife. So even for the more adventurous Disney vacationers, (meaning you hit the parks at night) Animal Kingdom has pretty-much been off-limits once it is dark. The Gurus are super excited to visit the parks at night!
This has all changed in 2016 with the new additions being added to the park. Before I dive into the reasons that you should make sure to go to Animal Kingdom Park at night, here’s the reasons you should absolutely make sure to go to THE parks at night;
- Ambiance-the parks are not the same at night…period. You will see things totally different and you will feel like you are an adventure. I also found that when my children were younger, they truly enjoyed the parks at night because of the lights.
- Experience-The attractions are not the same at night as they are during the day. Okay, technically, they are, but when you Ride Big Thunder Mountain and see the castle..it is magical!
- Heat- Florida is known for a hot sun, humidity and HEAT! Beat the heat by making visits to the parks at night part of your touring plan.
