If you find yourself back at your resort after a long, grueling day of touring the theme parks and you’re looking for a family activity that doesn’t involve walking or waiting in lines, we suggest “Movies Under the Stars.”
Each Walt Disney World resort presents a nightly movie – either near the resort’s pool, or on the beach if there is one at the resort – and the best part is…they’re free!
At Disney’s Animal Kingdom there are nightly movies at Jambo House and Kidani Village, and the schedule can be found on the activity sheet that you receive at check-in.
The movie under the stars begins at dark (currently 8:30 p.m. in May) and at Jambo House the movie is shown at the Uzima Pool while the Kidani Village movies are shows at the Samawati Springs pool.
You can find the monthly resort activity sheets in our photo gallery under the Maps and Printed Materials gallery.
For May 2014, the movies being shown include “Frozen,” “Brave,” “Monsters University,” “Mulan,” “The Pirate Fairy,” and more. Be sure to check the activity sheet for a full list of monthly movies.
