PHOTOS, VIDEO: Rivers of Light Nighttime Show Testing During Animal Kingdom Park Hours

While visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom yesterday, I was surprised to see that the viewing area for Rivers of Light was open for guests to explore, perhaps offering a seating area for some nearby eateries.

Ae we explored, we noticed that techs for the show were out and turning things on.

After playing with the two boats for a while, things went quiet, so we left.

As evening fell, it was clear that the animal lantern barges had been rolled out, but they were not illuminated yet.

However, once 7:30PM hit and the park closed, the boat and two of the animal lanterns illuminated.

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the show will debut soon, but it is a pretty decent sign at least.

We also have a video of the test to share with you:
