    We are going to be at Animal Kingdom in April 2019. Will the Rivers of Lights show still be there? I can’t find a time for it on the park hours site! Thanks!

    Hi Margo,

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is always a roaring great time! I love getting to see so many unique and amazing creatures, yet also enjoy all of the fantastic shows, thrilling attractions, and feeling of being immersed in faraway lands.

    I'm happy to let you know that I just checked the Rivers of Light page, and over on the right-hand side is a calendar with show times. Thankfully, it is still showing there that it will be running during your vacation. Hooray! The times just must not have made it onto the official park hours page yet. You're going to love watching the night come to life with dancing water, gorgeous music, and captivating lighting effects throughout this approximately 15 minute show. Disney's Animal Kingdom really is spectacular at nighttime. I would be remiss if I didn't encourage you to make sure that you experience Pandora - The World of Avatar after dark. The entire land is aglow through the magic of bioluminescence and the sights and sounds are incredible.

    After a magical day at Disney's Animal Kingdom, my family's favorite thing to do is visit Zuri's Sweets Shop for a delicious treat to enjoy on our way out. Our very favorite is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookie. Mmm...I'm just thinking about it and my mouth is watering!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Margo, and please stop by and see us again with any other questions. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
