The popular water attraction located in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been closed since the beginning of November and the date surrounding when it would reopen had been changed a couple of times, finally falling on December 16.

We can confirm that the ride is open and that Guests will now be able to enjoy the attraction with its refurbishments completed.

Disney World’s official description of Kali River Rapids reads:

Raft Down a Rip-Roaring River

Skim across an erupting geyser, drift below a canopy of lush vegetation and be whisked along fast-moving rapids. Graze gushing waterfalls and bedrock amid the raging current. Then, as the harmony of nature is disrupted, you’ll plummet down a dramatic 20-foot slope!

You Will Get Wet

You will surely get splashed on this attraction—and you may even get soaked. Guests wishing to remain dry are encouraged to bring a waterproof poncho, extra clothes or a towel to dry off.

Lockers for mobile devices and other items you want to stay dry are located across from the entrance to Kali River Rapids and are available during your ride (on a first-come, first-served basis).

Orlando is set to have a high in the mid-80s for the remainder of this week, making for perfect weather to enjoy the attraction and celebrate its reopening.
