    will river of lights be showing in august 2017

    Hi Bud,

    The new extravaganza of music and light, Rivers of Light, debuted a few days ago at Animal Kingdom, and it's really beautiful. I was fortunate enough to see it on opening night, and there's so much to see in the show. I can't decide which part is my favorite: the giant Tiffany-style animals that are aglow on Discovery River, the giant lotus flowers that transform throughout the show or the projections of wildlife that dance across a wall of water.

    Rivers of Light is scheduled to be a permanent feature at Animal Kingdom, performing on select nights. While there's lots of seating in the amphitheater, I suspect the show is going to be very popular in the coming months, so you may want to consider a FastPass+ or a Rivers of Light dining package to guarantee a reserved spot.

    Don't miss the other nighttime experiences at Animal Kingdom, the Tree of Life Awakenings, the music and the different views of Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest after dark. And, of course, by August you will be able to travel to Pandora: The World of Avatar.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bud. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you or make any recommendations as you plan your August vacation. Enjoy!
