    When will rivers of light start playing again? I LOVE a good night time show

    Hi Tiffany,

    Well, you've got a friend in me, because I, TOO, love a good night time show! In fact, some of my favorite Disney memories are watching the night sky light up in magic with my loved ones, celebrating the moments shared together that day. I can't WAIT to celebrate the return of all of the nighttime spectaculars at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Due to Disney's commitment to health and safety, most of the nighttime shows simply aren't able to happen right now due to the large crowds that gather to enjoy them. While we don't yet know when they'll return, I'd recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements of their reappearance. I do want you to be aware, though, that there is currently no mention of Rivers of Light: We Are One on Disney's website, meaning that this is unfortunately not something you'll be able to experience, even if nighttime shows return prior to your visit. The good news for you, though, is that there are still many special ways to enjoy the magic at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park right now. On evenings when the park is open past dark, you'll be happy to hear that Tree of Life Awakenings are lighting up the night sky with beautiful music and incredible imagery. And by day, you'll find some super fun and festive flotillas featuring beloved Disney Characters and exciting entertainment. Of course, this is on top of all of the many beloved favorites at this park. You simply have to experience Kilimanjaro Safaris, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, and my favorite attraction throughout ALL of Walt Disney World Resort, Avatar Flight of Passage. I also highly recommend the Animation Experience at Conservation Station as well as a stop for a sweet treat at Zuri's Sweets Shop. Mmm...my mouth is watering just thinking about their Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie!

    I know you'll have a roaring great time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and I'm sending all the pixie dust for a truly magical vacation! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney, Tiffany, and come back and see us again if we can help with anything else!
