A day after Diwali was celebrated, Disney World has installed festive decorations in the Asia section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is one of the most celebrated holidays of the entire year for Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and even some Buddhists. The name “Diwali” is derived from the Sanskrit term deepavali, meaning “row of lights.” The five-day festival symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. While the specific date of this holiday changes each year due to the lunar calendar, it usually falls sometime in late October to November. This year, Diwali was on Monday, October 24th and guests can now find festive decorations right outside of the Anandapur Theater. Here’s a look!
The decorations add a pop of color to the area.
