    Trying to plan a trip to animal kingdom! Wanted to know if there were any attractions such as Rafiki's planet that close earlier than the official park closing? Trying to make a touring plan and want to be prepared. Thank you!

    Hello Devone! Disney's Animal Kingdom is my absolute favorite park. I love walking through the streets of Africa and Asia and taking in the atmosphere and the street performers. I hope that when you go, you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Each park closes at different times depending on the season, whether or not it is a weekday, and also if a special event is planned. I am not sure what date you are planning on visiting Animal Kingdom, so I cannot tell you precisely when the park will close or which attractions will close before closing time. I noticed that you put down October 3rd, 2015 as your arrival date, so I looked up that date and the attractions schedule is unavailable that far in advance. I'm sure that the schedule will be up once your arrival date gets nearer. I would keep checking back with the Animal Kingdom attractions page for schedule updates.

    If you need anything else Devone, please don't hesitate to ask. Have a 'wild' time at Disney's Animal Kingdom!
