Animal Kingdom park hours updated and showtimes for Rivers of Light

Disney World Crowd Calendar and Park Hours 2018 and 2019

A quick post to let you know that I’ve updated Animal Kingdom park hours through the end of June.  I’m sure other months will be updated later and more showtimes will be added as needed.  You can check the new park hours on my Crowd Calendars.  Here’s the specific dates that currently offer Rivers of Light shows.

You’ll notice that the 3 days surrounding the Grand Opening of Pandora in Animal Kingdom will offer 11pm closing.  I had already marked each of these days as RED park in advance.

Rivers of Light showtimes are currently provided through June 2017.  Showtimes for months after June will be added later.

  1. I would like to FP Na’vi for after dinner (Tiffins) at like 7p and do the Safari first thing in the am. We will also be doing the Rivers of Light Dining Package. Is it doable to go on Na’vi at 7p and walk around Pandora to enjoy the bio luminescence and make it to Rivers for an 845p show? We would be there beginning of September.

  2. Thanks Kenny! That’s what I’ve started to think. Would you suggest changing that to my original 3 then? (That would eliminate the option of adding any more though.)

  3. We’ll be at Ak in April. Did not schedule a FP for ROL thinking we would add it as our 4th or later choice since there are 2 shows that evening. Safe bet or not?

  4. It looks like starting early this summer, it’ll be happening daily. Do you think that’ll continue through the end of August, or should I try to switch our AK day to an “even” number day – which looks more solid on the current schedule?

    Also – I see it’s estimated that August 29th MK will close early for the Halloween parade and it’s in green, even though it’s listed a moderate park. Do you anticipate it being okay from 9-7pm? Otherwise our other option is to do MK two days in a row of our 5 day trip due to “red” days. We will be in the park the 26-30th.
