“Rivers of Light,”Opens Feb. 17 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Plan Your Disney Vacation Now – 2017 is EXCITING!
For more than a year, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park at Walt Disney World® Resort has continued its evolution to a day-to-night park by introducing a rich variety of new nighttime experiences – from Kilimanjaro Safaris after sunset and fine dining at Tiffins, to the vibrant entertainment at the Harambe Wildlife Parti and Discovery Island Carnivale. And when the Tree of Life awakens after dark, it is truly a sight to behold!

Today, we’re happy to announce one of the park’s newest nighttime experiences, “Rivers of Light,” will make its official debut on Feb 17, 2017.

Continuing the grand Disney tradition of innovative, after-dark entertainment, “Rivers of Light” combines live performance, floating set pieces, a soaring musical score, fountains and more in a celebration of animals and nature. The story magically unfolds on the broad natural stage of the Discovery River, conveying the uplifting spirit of an ancient and timeless lantern ceremony and filled with symbolism, storytelling and plenty of heart.

Dining and FastPass+ reservations for this new show are now available.  

And don’t forget that the next step in the expansion of Disney’s Animal Kingdom – the grand debut of Pandora – The World of Avatar – will take place on May 27, 2017.

Let’s get YOUR Magical Disney Vacation Booked and Planned so you can be part of the new happenings and have a front row seat!

What’s Going On at Animal Kingdom?

Rivers of Light! Is it Happening or Not? Park hours. Getting shorter. The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic!, being cancelled already? Will the Tree of Life continue to light up at night or not? Planning a Disney vacation, especially if you’re wanting to visit the Animal Kingdom Park for evening event, will be disappointment this fall and winter.

All good questions. Answers are far and few between. The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic is going away after  Labor Day. This show, thrown together at the last minute, was a temporary show anyway, to keep guests entertained until the main attraction, Rivers of Light could be completed and rolled out. Alive with Magic was lukewarm at best.

As for the Rivers of Light? No news if or when this long over due show will ever see the light of day or the shadows of night.  A lot of money sunk into a project that we may never see or will not see for a very long time?? One has to wonder why. We’re sure it boils down to money.

We’re also wondering about the Tree of Life and it’s magical lighting at night. The park hours have been  getting shorter. From 11:00pm to 9:00pm and now 7:00pm as we get closer to fall and winter. No word on whether the Tree of Life will be lighting up or not.

So, we went from the excitement of this park being open for more hours of fun and thrills to not.  We’ll have to wait to see what they come up with in the coming months and years with the opening of Avatar.

There is still plenty to do in Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and if you’re a shopper, you’ll love Disney Springs!! Let us help you plan your next Disney Vacation so you’ll get the most magic, and navigate all the pros and cons, so your Disney experience will be the best fir for you!
