    Does anyone know if the rivers of light at Animal akingdom will still be showing this September/ October? There are no times listed and animal kingdom is closing at 8pm!

    Hi Shelby,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is such a gorgeous park, and it becomes every more stunning at night. From the breathtaking bioluminescence of Pandora - The World of Avatar to the magical Tree of Life Awakening, evening is a very special time to visit this park.

    I love having good news to share, Shelby. According to the show’s web page, Rivers of Light is on the schedule for September and October of 2018. To check availability during your visit, scroll about halfway down the page to where you see “Hours” on the page’s right side. Click on the calendar icon and select your date to see the scheduled showtimes. Please note that showtimes are subject to change, and the most up-to-date schedule is always in the Times Guide you pick up as you enter the park, so be sure to check that on the day of your visit. 

    I’m so glad you have Rivers of Light on your itinerary, Shelby. It’s a lovely tribute to nature, and the music, water, and lights come together to create real magic. When fireflies light up the sky like pixie dust, I get goosebumps. I hope you enjoy every magical moment of the show and of your autumn visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Yours in pixie dust and adventure,
