Recap of Animal Kingdom's Brand-New Nighttime Offerings

Beginning May 27, many new nighttime offerings will debut at Animal Kingdom.
As previously announced, the Tree of Life will come to life throughout the night, Kilimanjaro Safaris will have extended operating hours, two new entertainment experiences (Harambe Wildlife Parti and Discovery Island Carnivale) will feature lively music, Tiffins will open as the park’s first signature restaurant and, just for a limited time, "The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic" will be performed.  

Here is a list of frequently asked questions about the park's new nighttime offerings mentioned above:

When can Guests book reservations or get FastPass+ entitlements? 
Additional information will be shared on May 20, 2016. 

Is the Tree of Life awakening and "The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic" the same experience?
No. The awakenings at the Tree of Life are stories at the base of the Tree that are brought to life by magical fireflies using the projection mapping technology. The "Jungle Book: Alive with Magic" is a limited-engagement show that will be performed on the new amphitheater by the Discovery River.

Will the entertainment bother the animals?
The well-being of all of the creatures at the park was at the forefront of the discussion and planning of all of these new nighttime offerings. All the existing habitats offer choices for animals, such as ranges in temperature, sound and light levels. Animals have quieter spaces available, if they choose to use them.

What type of food will be offered at Tiffins?
The lunch and dinner menus at Tiffins will be cuisine inspired by Asia, Africa and South America and celebrate the art of traveling. Additional details on this restaurant can be found by clicking here.

Which of Disney’s Animal Kingdom experiences will continue to close at sunset?
Just like it has always been done in the past, some locations, including Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, and Maharajah Jungle Trek, will continue to close at sunset.
