This week’s “After Dark” image was snapped at Disney’s Animal Kingdom just in time to catch an amazing Florida sunset.

Can you spot Expedition Everest in the background? Earlier this year, the park’s operating hours expanded into the evening, so guests can now experience favorite attractions like Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris and others, into the evening hours.

  • Gorgeous shot, although it is hard not to take a great picture in the immaculate Animal Kingdom. Is there anyway to submit for these After Dark photos, or is it only for Cast Members and Disney certified photographers?

  • So excited and ready to hang out at night in Animal Kingdom!

    For years now we have used Animal Kingdom as our half day park.

    Now we will absolutely love experiencing all the new nighttime attractions!

    Hoping for extended hours during Spring Break (March 2017) and fingers crossed that Rivers of Light will be up and running.

    The sunset over Everest photo is stunning. I know that Animal Kingdom will be just as beautiful in the evenings as the other parks.

    The transition from afternoon into evening has always been my favorite time of day at Walt Disney World.
