VIDEO: Go behind the scenes of Walt Disney World’s “Rivers of Light” nighttime spectacular

in Entertainment, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

We can’t wait for Walt Disney World’s new nighttime spectacular, Rivers of Light, at Animal Kingdom. Lucky for us and all of you, Disney has released an appropriately spectacular behind the scenes look at the all-new show!

Here’s Disney’s official description of what you’re about to watch:

The show celebrates the magic of nature coming to life and starts with an ancient lantern festival that draws out four Animal Spirit Guides – an Elephant, Owl, Tiger and Turtle. These animals take shape as larger-than-life lantern floats, some of which measure 15-feet-tall and 30-feet-long, and were designed to look as if they were created centuries ago. As you can see in the video below, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment, with Michael Curry Design, used innovative LED technology to illuminate the animals from within that suggests not only color, but changes in movement as the show progresses.

Are you super-excited for the new show? Let us know your feelings in the comments!
