Rivers of Light Finally Coming to Walt Disney World in 2017

Rivers of Light is the much anticipated water, fire, musical show coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.  Guests have been waiting anxiously for this attraction, as Disney originally planned to debut this one in the spring/summer of 2016.  Due to issues with the floats to be used in the production, the opening had to be delayed.  Disney has finally updated that the show will be “Coming in 2017”.  We don’t have a specific date in 2017 that it is set to open to guests, but Disney has been doing test runs for cast members, so we expect it to be very soon.

Rivers of Light is an evening show that will take place on the water in Asia.  The park historically hadn’t been open to guests during evening hours until summer 2016, as to ensure the animals that reside there are comfortable and can still be cared for.  As this show has been under development, the safety and well being was of a huge concern.  The show will consist of dancing fountains, lanterns, music and storytellers who make the event exciting and complete delight for the senses.  This will definitely be a show unlike any others that Disney has done and we can’t wait to see it.  We will update here as soon as we have official opening dates for Rivers of Light.
