Go Wild Even Longer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve!

It’s always fun to rush down and see what’s under the tree on Christmas morning… but I don’t think we’ve ever had a tree quite this big!

Tree of Life Awakening for Animal Kingdom Holidays

We’ve reported previously on extended holiday hours at Animal Kingdom, but Disney has extended the hours for Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve even further!

On December 25, guests can start exploring the wilds of Asia, Africa, and Pandora at 8AM for general admission guests and 7AM for guests eligible for Extra Magic Hours.  The park will remain open until 9PM, giving you plenty of time to squeeze a ride on Flight of Passage!

Oh Christmas mech, oh Christmas mech, how rusty are your servos…

On December 31, all guests will be invited to the park at 7AM, with the park remaining open until midnight! All four Disney Parks will be open until midnight or later for the holiday, so whether you want to ring in the new year with Disco Yeti at Expedition Everest or celebrate a new galactic cycle on Batuu, Disney has you covered.

It’ll be a roarin’ good time!

Will you be at the parks during the holidays? Which one would you rather spend your Christmas exploring? Let us know in the comments!
