    Hi Joanne, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom is such a beautiful place, full of gorgeous and evocative details that really transport me to other lands. I love that in one morning I can ride a raft through an endangered forest, take a train ride up a forbidden mountain, soar on a Banshee on another world, and see the dinosaurs. Talk about magic!

    Rivers of Light is a lovely, mystical tribute to the magic that can be found in nature, and I think it really captures the spirit of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. 

    Joanne, you can find the schedule on Rivers of Light’s web page. On the top right, just beside the picture, you’ll see a calendar icon and the day’s date – simply click on the date, and you’ll be able to select a date from the calendar and see that day’s showtimes. For May 8, 2019, Rivers of Light is scheduled for 8:45 p.m. Please remember that showtimes are subject to change, so be sure to double check closer to your visit date, or check a Times Guide as you enter the park. 

    Now, more than ever, is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, with so many new experiences debuting in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Lion King. The all-new Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party features beloved characters and fun music, and I hope you have lots of fun working on your roar with the gang from the Pridelands!

    Enjoy the show, and have a magical vacation,
