Rivers of Light official grand opening confirmed

Disney confirmed today the official grand opening date for the new Rivers of Light evening show in Animal Kingdom. In accordance with celebrating Animal Kingdom’s birthday and Earth Day, the park will officially launch Rivers of Light on April 22, 2016.

“The show, set on Discovery River in the Asia section of the park, will depict an ancient lantern festival guided by two storytellers who call forth four animal Spirit Guides: an Asian Tiger, Tropical Turtle, African Elephant and Great Horned Owl. These Spirit Guides return at different points during the show to lead the audience through their journey through the Rivers of Light.

Check out the video below to get the first look at some of the illuminated lanterns, water screens, moving fountains, light projections and other amazing elements that will be featured in “Rivers of Light.”

Yes it will occur multiple times nightly. I'll add it to Crowd calendar as soon as they put it up. It's already something you can insert into your plans on www.characterlocator.com

I'm so sad to be just missing this! Our trip is April 10-15 and then next trip won't be for over a year. :(
