New Summer Extra Magic Hours Have Been Added to Animal Kingdom's Schedule

New Summer Extra Magic Hours Have Been Added to Animal Kingdom's Schedule  
by: guide4wdw - Collin 

We have some good news for those of you visiting the parks this summer. Animal Kingdom will be offering even more summer, late night, extra magic hours. With a recent change to the Animal Kingdom operating hours schedule it appears as if every night for a majority of the summer will get at least 2 extra hours of operation as a part of Disney's Extra magic hours for resort guests.

From now though July 4th, the park will be open extra hours from 11:00pm-1:00am. After that date, hours shift slightly and the park will still remain open 2 extra hours, but from 10:00pm-12:00am. These additional extra magic hours appear to end August 20th. 

Disney has yet to say what will remain open for these extra magic hours, but many assume that it could only be Pandora. Personally, I'd love to see DinoLand operational at night more frequently. The area brings forth a whole different experience as the sun goes down. The lights are unique to see in the night hours and the whole park really takes on a different feel altogether. 

While we don't know the attraction lineup for the extra hours, it's great to see Animal Kingdom open later hours. I expect that very few attractions will remain open late, but the park is a great place to just wander and take in an entirely different atmosphere than nighttime in any other Disney park. 

Are you visiting Pandora this summer? We'll be there in just two short weeks!
