The years of 2016 – 207 will be big ones for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  The Rivers of Light nighttime spectacular is scheduled to open early in 2016, and the new Pandora – Land of Avatar is scheduled to open in 2017.

We can see some construction taking place on both these blockbuster additions, which are sure to change the park in dramatic ways – not the least of which is keeping crowds in the park well into the evening.

To support all the extra people who will be in the parks, Disney is adding new dining and shopping options.

Let’s take a look at what is happening in Disney’s Animal Kingdom:
