If all goes according to plan, Rivers of Light should finally debut at Animal Kingdom sometime between October 2nd and mid-November 2016. While this has not been confirmed by Disney as of yet, both dress rehearsals and technical work on the show are both scheduled to be wrapping up over the next week. After that, the show could technically debut at any time, it’s just a matter of when Disney chooses to do so.

As always, stay tuned for more information on the imminent debut of Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
