Some of the resorts have extra special after dark activities, tours, and experiences that can really add more magic to your visit:

DISNEY’S POLYNESIAN VILLAGE RESORT
Here, all guests can enjoy the ceremonial torch lighting daily at dusk. And once the sun goes down, the Spirit of Aloha dinner show is a luau you’ll never forget!
DISNEY’S WILDERNESS LODGE
Dine on pacific northwest cuisine at the rustic yet elegant Artist Point, where you can enjoy outstanding views over Bay Lake.
DISNEY’S FORT WILDERNESS RESORT & CAMPGROUND
There’s a lot of extra nighttime magic to be found at Fort Wilderness! Movies Under the Stars and bonfires here get “plussed” as Uncle Walt would say – with the addition of Chip & Dale’s Campfire Sing-a-long and a special Campground Cinema viewing area for films!
The Hoop-dee-doo Revue dinner show and Mickey’s Backyard BBQ provide rowdy dining experiences for cowpokes young and old, while horse drawn wagon rides can add a little romance at sunset. At Christmastime, be sure to take an evening sleigh ride around the campground to take in all of the campsite decorations!

Simply stroll around to enjoy the atmosphere and street performers, pop into Abracadabar for a curious cocktail, or enjoy a gourmet dinner at Flying Fish Café (consider the Chef’s Tasting experience!). Night owls will love the Jellyrolls dueling piano bar and Atlantic Dance Hall night club.
DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM LODGE
Animal lovers and foodies alike will delight in evening at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Enjoy an impressive dinner at Jiko and enjoy an elaborate collection of South African wines.
