As part of the largest expansion in the park’s history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will immerse guests into the world of Pandora, and the entire park will transform after dark with new nighttime entertainment experiences, offering guests longer days than ever before to experience this fantastic, one-of-a-kind theme park.
Some very interesting new details about these new offerings (including Rivers of Light) were released at the D23 Expo during a Parks & Resort presentation.


“Rivers of Light” – Expected to open next spring, “Rivers of Light” will be an innovative experience unlike anything ever seen in a Disney park, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. “Rivers of Light” will magically come to life on the natural stage of Discovery River, delighting guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


While the show will start with some small special effects (Joe Rhode even joked about this, saying that some Guests may complain at first, thinking they are just looking at "candles"), the experience will continue to build up to reach a truly amazing finale, which will include incredible projections on the Tree of Life, amazing special effects, and much more. Hundreds of "fireflies" will also help light up the Tree of Life.

Kilimanjaro Safaris – This popular attraction will be extended for a new nighttime adventure next spring, where guests will travel through the African savanna amid the magically extended orange glow of the setting sun and discover two species new to the attraction: African wild dogs and hyenas.

Pandora: The World of AVATAR – Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests will journey into the magnificent world of Pandora at this new AVATAR-themed land – a world that includes floating mountains, a bioluminescent forest and the winged creatures known as Banshees, giving guests a transformational experience they will never forget.



The entire land will come alive at night, thanks to special effects that Guests will be able to experience in every corner of this fantastic world, including some surprises that will be seen around the walkways!
