Walt Disney World Set to Debut Rivers of Light: We Are One This Summer

Rivers of Light was first introduced at Disney’s Animal Kingdom over two years ago.  It is an amazing nighttime show at the park which features illuminated lantern floats, theatrical imagery, a beautiful musical score and visually stunning special effects.  We learned from Disney Parks Blog that this summer there will be a new chapter to this popular evening show.  The new chapter will be a debut of Rivers of Light: We Are One.  Rivers of Light: We Are One is expected to show a variety of imagery and animals from Disneynature films, plus some of the amazing moments from Disney animation.  The message for the show is the show the connection with animals how their emotions sync up with a shared journey through the great circle of life.


The music for this grand new show will include some of the original musical score and family Disney music to create a new arrangement of that “inspires and carries us through moments of discovery, fun, friendship, fear, love and family.”

The show is expected to debut at the Discovery River Amphitheater within Disney’s Animal Kingdom starting Memorial Day Weekend in 2019.  It should be an exciting experience for guests and we look forward to seeing how the show will be changed.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
