All new to the park is The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic. The live show is an action-filled adventure with music and special effects based on the new live-action The Jungle Book film.

Most of the park attractions will remain open until park close. A party atmosphere will set the mood for fun at the Harambe Wildlife Parti and the Discovery Island Carnivale. The grand finale to a wild evening of Animal Kingdom’s nighttime experiences will be the awe-inspiring Rivers of Light. The new show intertwines the magic of animals, humans and our natural world.
