Disney Offering New Behind-the-Scenes Experience at Rivers of Light for Backstage Magic Tour

If you love learning more about Walt Disney World and how the magic is created, then you will want to check out the Adventures by Disney Backstage Magic Tour where guests get a behind-the-scenes look at attractions, show, parades and more.  We have now learned that starting in June, there will be a new experience added to the tour which will feature a backstage look at Rivers of Light, the nighttime show over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Guests will get a daytime visit to the hidden marina where the animal and lotus barges are staged and ready for the show.  Guests will get to see how it all works and get a look at some of the mechanical and technological secrets. During this event, guests will also receive a private lunch at Tiffins Restaurant, which will feature a special menu and insider stories about how the park was created.

If you are curious about what the Backstage Magic Tour is, it is a tour that is led by the Adventure Guides with Adventures by Disney.  Guests will get to experience a variety of backstage experience at different parks including:

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
