Animal Kingdom News: Rivers of Light Work Starting Soon

Some great news have been released internally at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, which we are sure you will find very interesting. First of all, you will be happy to know that some irrigation work has started around the savannah at Kilimanjaro Safaris. This is the first phase of construction for the park's brand-new nighttime safaris, which is considered to be a key element of the largest expansion in the history of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But there's more.

If you have had the chance to check out our latest Animal Kingdom photo-reports, you will have noticed the massive amount of work being done around Discovery Island. That work includes the widening of Discovery island's walkways and lay the foundation of the land inspired by AVATAR.

Finally, you will soon also see construction related to the park's first nighttime spectacular, Rivers of Light. Work on this great show (including the construction of the needed infrastructures) will begin in the next few weeks.


  1. The danger of losing immersion in Animal Kingdom is total...
    What happens to Animal Kingdom ...? Yeti not fixed, Mist in the cave of Expedition Everest are gone, no fog on Kali River, Rain forest cafe entrance Waterfall not work...
    it's a shame. maybe it's the one of the parks most likely to impress.
    The loss of effects, should not fall within the policy of Disney Parks!

  2. I fully agree with the post above. It's the little things that the loyal Disney fans notice most. Ok, the yeti issue isn't a little thing, but the rest of it is. There's no excuse for spending hundreds of millions dollars on Avatar Land, but they can't get the mist and waterfalls working? Details are important. Disney knows this.

    As for the yeti, it won't be fixed anytime soon. It will never be restored to its original form (which I was lucky enough to see the second day the attraction was open), since the concrete foundation itself was supposedly cracked due to the weight of the yeti. But they can certainly "shore it up" and add some smaller movements. Anything would be better than the current strobe effect.

  3. The Rainforest Cafe is owned and operated by Landry's Inc. Landry's is the one who has not fixed the waterfall, not Disney's Animal Kingdom.
