Animal Kingdom Update: Summer’s Ending Soon (PARTS 1 & 2)

Summer is almost coming to an end. While this means that the theme parks will be less crowded and the weather will get cooler, it also means that park hours will be slightly reduced. Fortunately, this year, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will continue to remain open after sunset even in September and October, meaning that most of the nighttime experiences will continue to be available to Guests throughout the rest of the year. Let’s take a look around the park now.
Welcome to one of the most immersive theme parks ever created:

In the previous part, we took a quick look around Discovery Island (which also includes the park’s hub) as well as half of DinoLand U.S.A. Let’s now continue our tour of the park by walking around the rest of this land and then moving on to Asia and Africa. We really hope you will enjoy the rest of these pictures.
DINOSAUR is still closed for refurbishment:
