Animal Kingdom Update: Rivers of Light & More (PART 1)

This year will undoubtedly be one of the most important and meaningful ones for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. While the new Pandora land is still more than a year away from opening and no other new ride is scheduled to open in 2016, the brand-new Rivers of Light nighttime show will debut in the Discovery River, causing an extension of the park's operating hours. Additionally, some areas of the park are being enhanced for the enjoyment of Guests. Take a look:

Pandora continues to take shape in the south-west section of the park:

The green poles installed on the right side of the amphitheater look a bit out of place:

We are not entirely sure about this, but it looks like a new fence has been installed behind the sign located at the entrance of the Tree of Life Garden. We never noticed it before:

By the way, the Tree of Life Garden is still closed for enhancements:
