Disney's Animal Kingdom
  • Donald Duck will be moving back to the Cretaceous Trail in Dinoland USA.
  • Festival of the Lion King has officially returned in the all new Harambe Theater, found in the Africa section of the park.

  • Rivers of Light could open sometime in early spring 2016. (Likely March of that year.)
