Animal Kingdom

Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom ‘The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic’ will make its debut on May 28th. This is the first evening show to be offered at Animal Kingdom park. The limited engagement show is inspired from the latest live-action adventure The Jungle Book. As guests gather on the shores of Discovery River for this vibrant Indian celebration, dozens of colorful performers and special effects take to the water and surround the audience in song and visual artistry. The visual effects are similar to “World of Color” or “Fantasmic,” with massive curtains of water glow to life above the river’s surface, illuminated with imagery and favorite characters from the latest blockbuster. Guests will be taken on a journey though the jungle following Mowgli’s encounters, while enjoying the rousing soundtrack we have all come to love. Showtimes are 9 p.m., and 10:30 p.m.  FastPass+ is available for this show.
