Animal Kingdom Update: Rivers of Light Construction

The brand new Rivers of Light amphitheater continues to take shape at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The more progress is made, the more Guests can understand the true size of this new area, which encompasses a very large section of the Discovery River and a sizable amount of land located in front of Expedition Everest. As you will see in the next photos, plenty of concrete has been poured in the feature seating area for the new nighttime show.

  1. Hello! Does anybody know if this "Rivers of color" show will include fireworks? And won't it stress the Kilimanjaro animals? I believe it's all settled up, but I'm concerned about the wildlife.

  2. No, the show will not include fireworks.
