Discussion in 'Disney's Animal Kingdom' started by Brian G., Aug 16, 2015.
Also announced yesterday at D23:
I think one of the greatest aspects of all of this and something that very few are really talking about is Disney finally taking advantage of Animal Kingdoms INCREDIBLE night atmosphere. After all of the expansion is complete in 2017 AK will easily be the best night park in existence.

Will still be nice though.
Lol yeah I gotta go there..
I've always loved California Adventure at night, too. Cars Land, Paradise Pier, and Grizzly Peak in particular. I've never been to DisneySea, but I really want to. And Animal Kingdom will look good at night, I'm excited for that.
they started building a new area on the safari ride next to the savanna are which might hold one of the night creatures
Aren't the current animals a good representation of African night creatures. Lions, Elephants, Jaguars... Are they going to toss in a pack of free roaming hyenas? That ought to be real special...
no it look like it might be enclosed with a fake small rocky hill kinda like the lions enclosure
Those screens have been there for months now. Still not sure how it's gonna work within the ride though.
It has been mentioned at the DAK event, of the Nighttime offerings starting up officially on Memorial Day weekend (Sans Rivers of Light).
If someone got a pic of that screen from backstage that would be really nice of them.
Of course don't do anything that will make you loose your job.
At least they're starting everything else.
What's weird is them seeming to undersell the Safari but overhype Everest and Kali at night. Weird. I'm excited for this.
The nighttime entertainment in Africa looks top notch as well.
Yes, I am excited for all of this. Wish it wasn't starting over such a busy weekend. I might try to catch it the next weekend before summer out of school vacations start. I am excited for all of this.
I haven't seen it in person, but I have to admit, the sunset thing is pretty commendable. Creating a faux sunset (!!!) is a pie-in-the-sky idea but they actually did it.
Pretty cool they are doing this but doubt it will be as cool as the sunrise safari at AKL. I do have to wonder if they have trained the animals to adjust to these changes where they will be out of their pens for a longer amount of time.
They have special night animals. Also, it seems the animals have been out later. I saw the most animals in a long time in the late afternoon which normally has the least. My Sister-in-Law said they same thing to me yesterday. She was shocked at the number of animals she saw in the late afternoon. I already saw the wild dogs which apparently are more night time animals. So I think they have already brought the new animals in and gotten the animals used to the new hours. Remember this was going to open up this weekend.
Have they updated the night time hours on the website yet? My sister plans on going in October but it shows AK closes at 5pm on the day she is going.
