Animal Kingdom’s “Rivers of Light” to Debut Spring 2016

Walt Disney World Resort’s Animal Kingdom park is set to debut brand new nighttime entertainment in 2016. Disney Parks Blog shares a few details on what’s in store.

Set to make its first appearance in Spring 2016, “Rivers of Light” will add to a whole new nighttime experience. This show will take part on the Discovery River, as guests enjoy all the sights and sounds of lights and nature.

 In “Rivers of Light,” a pair of mystical hosts come to the river bearing gifts of light. During the show, the hosts set out from the shore on elaborate lantern vessels for a dramatic dance of water and light to summon animal spirits. With the storytellers as your guides, the wonders of “Rivers of Light” builds to a stunning crescendo.

In addition to the show, you’ll also notice the park’s iconic Tree of Life will undergo an amazing awakening as the animal spirits of the tree are brought to “light” by magical fireflies, revealing moments of wonder and enchantment.

There is so much to look forward to in the coming years at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. This new addition seems like a way to prep guests for Pandora – The World of AVATAR, set to open in 2017.

Further details on “Rivers of Light” will be released on a future date.
