    Disney’s Animal Kingdom is undergoing the largest expansion in the park’s history which will bring new and exciting additions to the Park.

    One of the additions is a new nigh time spectacular called “Rivers of Light” which promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest.

    What a wonderful way to end your day of adventure at Animal Kingdom.

    Sounds great. Couple this with the new Avatar 'land', it should revive some interest (at least from me) in the park.

    There is no date Jeff but I would guess and say it will coincide with the opening if Avatarland.

    Not sure how I feel about night time "stuff" at Animal Kingdom.

    I think it can only be a good thing for Animal Kingdom, it will certainly attract more people that's for sure. There is no mention of fireworks so that won't disturb the animals and the way I have taken it is that guests won't be able to visit the animal areas.
