I know that there has been a tremendous amount of speculation as to when Disney might be debuting Rivers of Light, the new nighttime show for Animal Kingdom (which is now a whopping 6 months late after being set to debut April 22nd, 2016), but it looks like we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel now. Supposedly. Maybe.
If sources are to be believed, Disney is eyeing November 18th, 2016 as the official debut date for Rivers of Light. This is not set in stone and is still being discussed internally, but it seems highly likely at this point in time. This would be just days ahead of the Destination D event where it is believed D23 members in attendance will get to be a part of a private showing of the new nighttime spectacular.
Regardless, we expect an announcement from Disney very, very soon.
If it makes you feel any better, some cast members who have been present for recent dress rehearsals of Rivers of Light have called it “stunning”, “beautiful”, and one even went so far as to call it “the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life”. Color me excited for this one, folks.
