Disney announced today that they will be live streaming the amazing new(ish) Rivers of Light show next Tuesday. The show will be part of the Disney Parks “#DisneyParksLIVE” series of webcasts, which tend to be very well produced shows. Like so many other Disney World shows, it will be very difficult to invoke the feeling of witnessing Rivers of Light first-hand, but I have no doubt they will do an excellent job capturing the essence of the experience.
Here is a quick refresher of what you can expect from this amazing light, sound and water show which takes place nightly at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom:
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. (source)
