Fans have been patiently awaiting for Disney’s Animal Kingdom to offer a reason to stay during the evening and the time has finally come. Next weekend, starting May 27, the nighttime experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are finally kicking off.

The evening fun will start with the nightly awakenings of the park’s iconic Tree of Life. Animal spirits will be brought to life each night by magical fireflies that reveal colorful stories of wonder and enchantment along with other amazing sights at the tree.
