The newest Walt Disney World nighttime spectacular is opening next week! The Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will be opening on Friday, February 17th. Guests can begin booking FastPasses for the show and Disney has some dining packages as well. Hit the jump for more details on Rivers of Light!
Rivers of Light is being operated similar to Fantasmic. Guests can choose to do a standby queue, FastPass or book a dining package. The Rivers of Light dining package is being offered at both Tiffins and Tusker House. These do not cost any extra so if these two restaurants are on your list I’d definitely recommend going this route so you don’t use up a FastPass on the show.
Initial impressions seem positive. Disney held a soft opening of Rivers of Light on Friday and from what I’ve seen guests enjoyed the performance. I’ve heard that it’s leaps and bounds better than the Jungle Book show held at Animal Kingdom over the summer. We’ll have first hand impressions of the show in the coming months so stay tuned!
