PHOTOS: Animal Kingdom hosts surprise Rivers of Light preview at Walt Disney World

in Disney's Animal Kingdom, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

It’s been a big day for Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World– besides the announcement of the official opening date of the park’s Pandora: the World of AVATAR expansion, Animal Kingdom also hosted a surprise preview performance of the long-delayed Rivers of Light water show on the Discovery River lagoon.

This was the first full exhibition of the show for an audience (this time made up mostly of select Social Media Mom bloggers, plus their friends and families) and with it came news that Rivers of Light has apparently been cut down to about fifteen minutes in total length. However, those who witnessed the new show certainly seemed to enjoy it!

Could this mean the show is nearing a state where it is ready for regular guest consumption? Could a soft opening be next? Only time will tell, so stay tuned to Inside the Magic for more information and further updates from Walt Disney World!
