The Excitement’s Building for Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s ‘Rivers of Light’
We know it's a bit early but...
Just a few months left to wait!

Although it’s not set to open until spring this year, we can’t help but get excited early about the opening of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s ‘Rivers of Light’ attraction. Disney’s Imagineers have been working on the new attraction for more than a year, so you can be sure it’s going to be spectacular show when it finally opens in the next few months!

In November last year, Disney released some teaser images of how the Rivers of Light show will look –an awe-inspiring mixture of bright, colourful lighting, intricate patterns intended to reflect the beauty of nature, and the glittering twinkle of Disney’s very own ‘fireflies’. For the main event, small ethereal floating lily pads encircle a large fountain lily, which holds court on the centre of the lake, waiting to burst into life. Rivers of Light will be a night time experience, and the show will take place between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, with the stunning Tree of Life visible in the background.

The show is a dramatic mix of storytelling and a dance of water and light to summon the animal spirits which will leave you mesmerised! This night time show also means extended park hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which means extra hours of fun to enjoy at this incredible park.
