“Rivers of Light” Nighttime Spectacular Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

In even more Animal Kingdom news, Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment announced the new nighttime spectacular “Rivers of Light” coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

As we’ve shared on the Disney Parks Blog, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is about to undergo the largest expansion in the park’s history. Among other exciting projects, the years ahead will see the addition of all-new entertainment experiences, including a new nighttime spectacular.


“Rivers of Light” promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, delighting guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

We look forward to sharing more details on the Disney Parks Blog in the future – about “Rivers of Light” and other new entertainment experiences coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
