Posted with Permission via Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration. We’re closer than ever to the debut of “Rivers of Light,” the newest nighttime offering that’s set to debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on February 17th. Today we have a sneak peek to share with you from our preview at Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration.
The first sneak peek we have for you is the new laser light show Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This is what Disney has to say: Get swept away in a timeless show that celebrates the beauty of all living things. With a brilliant fusion of water, sound and light, it’s quite unlike anything you’ve experienced before! As sunlight fades and the stars begin their twinkle, remember that we are all bound together by earth and spirit—past, present and future. Listen as the Discovery River responds to the whispers of the world, cradling creatures with a symphony that swells with wild murmurs and shimmering secrets of the universe. So begins a new light—a vibrant awakening of flitting fireflies leading to a ceremonious procession across the water. Before your eyes, clusters of lantern light shift and shape into stunning animal spirit forms—the Tiger, Turtle, Elephant and Owl. Spellbound, you’re transported across Asian jungles and tropical oceans to African Savannahs and North American mountains. This magnetic display culminates in a triumphant blend of song, light, color and earthly elements—a grand finale so divine that you can’t help but feel a sense of peace and oneness with nature.
And what I have to say? It was outstanding. First of all, from our last couple of trips to Walt Disney World I have just fallen in love with Disney’s Animal Kingdom. So the fact that they’re adding more night time attractions and shows? I’m just floored. It is so magical there in the evening. And the amphitheater for the show is so well done, you can tell that so much time and effort has gone into the making of Rivers of Light before the show even starts! I loved the music “We are one” and all of the laser effects are just stunning. They have hit this one out of the park! So next time you find yourself at Walt Disney World, make sure to add Rivers of Light to your schedule! Prior to arrival, check the My Disney Experience mobile app or view the park schedule for showtimes. This show runs on select nights for approximately 15 minutes, so be sure to pick up the Times Guide in the park for the most up-to-date schedule.
