Disney's AK Changes

1) A new signature dining option –Tiffin’s 

Tiffin’s will open in the spring of this year.  Open for both lunch and dinner, the new restaurant will include waterfront views from comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas. “Tiffin” is an Indian English word for a midday meal or a type of container used to carry food while traveling.

2) “Rivers of Light” Nighttime Spectacular

This new nighttime show debuts in the spring.  The show will take place on Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest.  During the show the Tree of Life will undergo an amazing awakening as the animal spirits of the tree are brought to “light” by magical fireflies, revealing moments of wonder and enchantment.  To create “Rivers of Light”, Imagineers and Creative Entertainment partnered with the talents of master puppet designer Michael Curry, composer Mark Mancina, and the filmmakers at Disneynature.  Here’s a video that explains it:

3) Sunset Kilimanjaro Safari 

This super popular attraction will now be available later so you can view the animals when they are more active.  I’m really excited for this one!  

There are new things on the horizon for Animal Kingdom in 2017 as well!  Pandora – The world of AVATAR will bring a variety of new experiences to the Park, including a family-friendly attraction called Na’vi River Journey.
