    How would I find out about a soft opening or preview of Rivers of Light when I go on my trip Jan 30th?

    Hi Eric! Everyone is anticipating the Rivers of Life Nighttime Experience in the Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World. This happens with anything new that comes to any of the parks. Soft openings are generally never advertised and only those guests who happen to be at the parks will have the chance to enjoy the experience before others. Many times Disney uses invitations to their cast members to come and enjoy something before the guests as this is a great way to get feedback from those who work with the attractions.

    Keep watching the website for updates to this wonderful show and also the Disney Parks Blog who will always give you the facts and dispel the rumors that travel around cyber space when it comes to new things at Disney. Good luck and I hope that Rivers Of Life will be up and running for all guests in January for your upcoming Disney vacation!
