All of the construction, of course, is part of a bigger picture.
Disney's Animal Kingdom is undergoing the changes in order to offer guests a true full-day experience. The park typically closes by 7 p.m. and as early as 5 p.m.
With the addition of a "nighttime spectacular" and an Avatar area that is positioned to engage guests after the sun sets, Animal Kingdom will be on par with the other three theme parks at Walt Disney World.
Of course, this is exciting to die-hard Disney fans. The nighttime show should rival the World of Colors at Disney's California Adventure, but I hope they make it so that it fits in with the thematic concept of Animal Kingdom theme park.
