The Rivers of Light nighttime lights, lasers, and water show in Disney’s Animal Kingdom made its debut in 2017.
And tonight brings a new chapter to this beautiful production, as Rivers of Light: We Are One begins!
Rivers of Light: We Are One tells “the story of our connection with animals and the emotions and milestones we all share in our journey through the great circle of life.” The new version adds more imagery from Disneynature films and Disney animation to the show, like moments from The Lion King, Bambi, Pocahontas, and more.
The original score of Rivers of Light is combined with well-known themes from Disney films throughout the 15 minute show.
The Tree of Life Awakenings have also received a new piece, as there is now a gorgeous vignette featuring the story of The Lion King.
Remember, the Tree “awakens” throughout the evening, so you’ll have several opportunities to catch a story or two. And the beautiful projections onto the tree really are stunning.
So be sure to check out these new chapters in both productions the next time you’re in Animal Kingdom after the sun goes down!
Though the show has changed, some things remain the same from its earliest days. Find out a few options for viewing Rivers of Light in our DFB YouTube Video!
