New 'Rivers of Light' show to open at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Spring 2016

There are changes coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom which will result in a much different experience for the Disney World theme park's guests.  From what has been considered a "half-day park" to many there are numerous additions in the works that will extend the available attractions into the night.

Rivers Of Light

The first such addition that will open for the public in the Spring of 2016 will be a night time show called 'Rivers of Light.'   This Disney's Animal Kingdom evening show will be a strong reason to extend your day because you will not want to miss this story filled journey of light, water, and music that will take the essence of the Animal Kingdom park and bring it together for an emotional show.

See the show description as shared by the Disney Parks Blog:

The show will take place on Discovery River between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest – take a close look and you can you see the Tree of Life in the background. In “Rivers of Light,” a pair of mystical hosts come to the river bearing gifts of light. During the show, the hosts set out from the shore on elaborate lantern vessels for a dramatic dance of water and light to summon animal spirits. With the storytellers as your guides, the wonders of “Rivers of Light” builds to a stunning crescendo.

In addition to the show, you’ll also notice the park’s iconic Tree of Life will undergo an amazing awakening as the animal spirits of the tree are brought to “light” by magical fireflies, revealing moments of wonder and enchantment.
To create “Rivers of Light,” Imagineers and Creative Entertainment partnered with the talents of master puppet designer Michael Curry, composer Mark Mancina and the filmmakers at Disneynature. According to Imagineer Joe Rohde, in an interview excerpt from the latest Disney Vacation Planning DVD, the addition of “Rivers of Light” to the park’s offerings will serve as that huge “wow” moment that ends a guest’s visit to the park.

Are you excited?
