For more than a year, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has continued its evolution to a day-to-night park by introducing a fun variety of new nighttime experiences, such as Kilimanjaro Safaris after sunset, fine dining at Tiffins, vibrant entertainment at the Harambe Wildlife Parti and Discovery Island Carnivale, and Tree of Life Awakenings.

Earlier this year, the park also welcomed the new nighttime show “Rivers of Light” to the park’s Discovery River. The show combines live performance and floating set pieces with a soaring musical score, and fountains in a celebration of animals and nature.

iNside Disney Parks recently went behind-the-scenes with Mark Renfrow, one of the creators of the show, for a special iNside Disney Parks Red Couch interview.

And don’t forget – Disney’s Animal Kingdom will add even more day-to-night fun when Pandora – The World of Avatar comes to life May 27, 2017.
