Animal Kingdom at Night
With the new night time show, there are expanded hours and the ability to see the animals later in the day. Riding on the Kilimanjaro Safari is a completely different experience at night than it is during the day, as well as riding rides like Expedition Everest where you get a sweeping view of the terrain around you from atop the mountain. Also, offerings like the Tree of Life Nighttime Awakenings, that have been going on since our trip this past November offer guests a neat "kiss goodnight" as they exit the park.

Rivers of Light
Rivers of Light will combine the effects of water, light, and fire to create a night time show unlike any other at Walt Disney World, and entertain all ages. You can see the show from either side of the built in seating area around the lake, and we found that by sitting about halfway up the rows you get a great view of both sides of the show. My girls were ages 5 & 6 when we saw the show, and their favorite parts were the images on the sheets of water going across the lake, and the lit up animal floats.
