Everything You Need to Know About Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

rivers of light disney animal kingdomDisney has launched a very helpful landing page for the soon-to-be-launched nighttime attraction “Rivers of Light” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The attraction, slated to open Friday, April 22 (Earth Day), will feature a sundown light show with colorful lighted decorations and water fountains.

The new page gives detailed descriptions of the various aspects of the Rivers of Light show, as well as, dining options including Disney’s soon-to-be newest restaurant, Tiffins, located on Discovery Island. There are also a number of additional nighttime activities at the Animal Kingdom spotlighted on this new page.

I can’t wait to see Rivers of Light firsthand. It really looks to be an amazing show. We tend to spend the least amount of time at Animal Kingdom when we go, but this new attraction may make it a nighttime destination for us next  time we visit!

If you are fortunate enough to visit Animal Kingdom after April 22 and witness Rivers of Light, please leave a comment below and let us know what you thought.
