    Does Animal Kingdom still offer light item items for the Rivers of Light show? I have just booked a dessert party and see now that light up items have been phased out, which will be disappointing to my kids.

    Hi, Denise! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When my family and I were at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park this past Tuesday, we did notice several people wearing the “Made With Magic” ears for the new iteration of the Animal Kingdom nighttime spectacular “Rivers of Light: We Are One.” This new version of the show pairs footage from Disneynature live-action films with footage from animal-inspired Disney animated films. We loved the new soundtrack that mixes the original Rivers of Light music with familiar Disney tunes, too.

    According to the Walt Disney World Resort website, the Made with Magic accessories are still available for purchase at both The Chapeau and Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park, Mouse Gear at Epcot, and Sunset Ranch Souvenirs and Gifts, Celebrity 5 & 10 and Beverly Sunset Boutique at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, too. When Mickey’s of Hollywood reopens after its refurbishment, you should be able to purchase Made with Magic items there as well. Please note that although Rivers of Light is one of the Park experiences that works alongside the Made with Magic items, there are not currently “ear”marked locations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park where those items are available for purchase. You may be able to find them available through merchandise carts set up around the perimeter of the show, though.

    I hope you and your family have the opportunity to experience the Magic during your Rivers of Light - We Are One Dessert Party on your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort. In the meantime, please let us know if there are any additional questions we can answer for you.
