When you are mesmerized, enchanted, excited and in awe all at the same time, that just means you saw something new at a Disney Park. I experienced all this plus the thrill of watching something unique and fantastic ahead of everyone else during our Disney Social Media Moms visit to Animal Kingdom. Soon the beautiful colorful and fabulous storytelling of The New ” The Rivers of Light” at Animal Kingdom will be taking dinning and viewing reservations from us all.
The Rivers of Light at Animal Kingdom
Truth be told, we have know about this for two years. After seeing it first hand, the technology and art featured in this show is riveting and captivating. This night time show opens on February 17th. It is a powerful visual journey that uses light, water, music, fire, actors, storytelling to recount the relationship between animals and humans. If you have been to Disneyland, it will make you think about “Colors of Light” show in which water acts as the screen for magnificent protections. But there is more to it than that because floating lanterns join in the choreography to feature beautiful glass mosaics of animals and flowers. These floating lanterns also use water, fire and colored lights to punctuate their statements.
Dinner and a Show at Animal Kingdom
In addition to this new fantastic show that you have to see to feel and fully indulge in can be combined with dinner. Reservations for this combination offer dinner at Tusker House or Tiffins plus preferential seating for the show of the same night.
If you are already planning for this, here is a brief sampling of the upcoming schedules:
- February 17 – March 11 – 7:15 p.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays
