Disney's Animal Kingdom News for May 17, 2017: Hours and Grants

Daily Extra Magic Hours: Of course, most of the talk surrounding the Animal Kingdom is the impending opening of Pandora the World of Avatar. The land has had numerous cast member, media and annual passholder previews already. And once the land officially opens to all on May 27th you should keep in mind if you are a resort guest, the land will be open for extra "extra" magic hours, 11 pm to 1 am every single night from opening until July 4th.

Conservation Grants: Disney released the recipients of the Disney Conservation Fund grants. For some some of that information, you can click here. More than $7 million in grants went to a wide range of groups. The amounts varied for each organization. Including even a smaller but vital grant to a young teen trying to preserve mangrove trees.

Short Day: Among all of these extended hours, you should take a look at the park closing time on May 24th just a few days before Memorial Day. The listed time is 3:30 in the afternoon. Presumably, the park is shutting down for another big media event. But if you are down there this week, please keep this in mind.

Park Hours for this week are...
Thursday May 18 9 am- 9:30 pm
Friday May 19 9 am-9:30 pm
Saturday May 20 9 am- 10 pm Extra Magic Hour in the morning
Sunday  May 21 9 am- 9:30 pm
Monday May 22 4 9 am- 9:30 pm Extra Magic Hour in the morning
Tuesday May 23 9 am- 9:30 pm
Wednesday May 24 8:30 am- 3:30 pm
