Rivers of Light Soft Openings Continue at Walt Disney World

We have heard reports that the soft opening showings of Rivers of Light are continuing at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The show isn’t set to open officially until February 17th, but Disney has scheduled showings last minute as soft open shows.  There was a show last night, and another one scheduled for tonight.  There is no guarantee that the shows will continue, but we expect that there will likely be showings multiple nights leading toward the official openings.

Currently if Disney decides that they will offer a show for that evening, FastPass+ becomes available in My Disney Experience, but they go very quickly.  If you are DVC member or Annual Passholder, you can also check near Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom for signs directing you where to get wrist bands for reserved seating for the show.  You entire party must be present for the wrist bands, and the cast members put them directly on your wrist when you get them.

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!
