The park's Tree of Life will come alive each night thanks to magical fireflies that will reveal "stories of wonder and enchantment" on the tree. This new nighttime experience at the Tree of Life begins May 27.

Guests will also have the chance to experience Kilimanjaro Safaris after dark and the village of Harambe will celebrate the Wildlife Parti every night. Over on Discovery Island guests can celebrate with the Discovery Island Carnivale.

And on May 28 the limited engagement of The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic debuts on Discovery River. Dining packages for The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic are now available.

Will these be offered year round or just in the summer?

The plan is for all but the Jungle Book Show to be permanent year round attractions.
