in Disney, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Entertainment, Events, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

One of the major highlights of Animal Kingdom’s new nighttime offerings is having the ability to take a night trip through Kilimanjaro Safaris. Areas of the wildlife preserve are lit lovingly with a sunset-colored light, or fabricated moonlight later in the attraction. It’s something to behold!

Check our little speed-through video below!

Without a doubt, these brand-new nighttime experiences are nothing short of breathtaking and will absolutely turn Animal Kingdom from a “half-day park” into a “full-day park”. The imagineers have put a ton of love and respect into this new endeavor, and it pays off in spades. Guys, if you’re reading this, you should all be very very proud of yourselves. But you don’t need me to tell you that. The proof is in the pudding. Nighttime at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a must-see.

So what do you think? Are you excited to see it all for yourself? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and as always, stick with Inside the Magic for all Disney parks news!

    What about the animals? Is having day and night tours stressful on them? And will they get enough rest?

  2. Rob

    A lot of animals sleep during the day and become active and hunt at night. They probably enjoy it 😉 And they self-regulate their rest.. so they nap all they want. These animals also don’t have to hunt right.. so they have it pretty easy.

    Why didn’t I see any animals until towards the end? And was that a real lion?

    Don’t bother. Worst safari I was ever on. You are seeing the same things as during the day except for them placing white floodlights aimed at the Savannah. You don’t seevanything. Like going through the safari in black and white. This is an embarrassment for Disney. .
