As part of the largest expansion to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a new nighttime spectacular has been announced. “Rivers of Light” promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, delighting guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The water screens and music sound like something from Fantasmic but I like the addition of the floating lanterns. I think this addition and to the upcoming Avatar-land will keep AKP open longer which is really necessary for this park.
