Since its debut on February 17, the show has run at 8:45 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Rivers of Light is the first evening spectacular at Animal Kingdom and will play a crucial role in spreading out summer crowds once Pandora — The World of Avatar opens May 27.
Disney bills Rivers of Light as “a celebration of the beauty, fragility and wild unpredictability of animals and nature told through live performers, animal spirit guide floats, fire, water and projections.”
The 15-minute show, which started 10 months later than Disney anticipated due to technical problems, has been running smoothly with only a few minor glitches that have yet to halt the show. However, high winds did stop the show one night.
Disney is offering two dining experiences that include prime viewing for the waterfront show. The Rivers of Light Dining Package includes a buffet at the Tusker House Restaurant for $52 for adults and $32 for children ages 3-9. A second package at Tiffins includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert for $67 for adults and $26 for children. The prices do not include tax, gratuity or park admission.
