Rivers of Light Nighttime Show at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Today marks the official opening of the new night time show "Rivers of Light" at Disney's Animal Kingdom! We were able to preview the show while we were at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2017 last week, and I'm excited that this night time entertainment will now be open to visitors at the theme park! Animal Kingdom is especially beautiful after dark, and at a park that has historically been one of the first to close in the evenings, the new night time offerings allow guests to have a unique experience there after dark!

Animal Kingdom at Night

With the new night time show, there are expanded hours and the ability to see the animals later in the day. Riding on the Kilimanjaro Safari is a completely different experience at night than it is during the day, as well as riding rides like Expedition Everest where you get a sweeping view of the terrain around you from atop the mountain. Also, offerings like the Tree of Life Nighttime Awakenings, that have been going on since our trip this past November offer guests a neat "kiss goodnight" as they exit the park.

Rivers of Light

Rivers of Light will combine the effects of water, light, and fire to create a night time show unlike any other at Walt Disney World, and entertain all ages. You can see the show from either side of the built in seating area around the lake, and we found that by sitting about halfway up the rows you get a great view of both sides of the show. My girls were ages 5 & 6 when we saw the show, and their favorite parts were the images on the sheets of water going across the lake, and the lit up animal floats.

Family Favorites

Animal Kingdom is one of our family's favorite parts about going to Walt Disney World, so all of the recent additions to the theme park have been exciting for our family!

Check out a number of New Experiences coming to Animal Kingdom very soon in this video!

We're looking forward to checking all of these things out on our next trip to Walt Disney World!
