Earlier this year Disney announced that a new nighttime spectacular, 'Rivers of Light,' will be coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom but did not give any details about when the show will debut.
New information has just come to us from trusted sources indicating that the show is currently being planned to open in March 2016. This gives designers and construction crews just under two years to produce the show and build the necessary infrastructure around the water in front of Expedition Everest. The show's viewing areas in particular are thought to require a lot of work, as the walkways currently surrounding the water are not sufficient to support the expected crowds.
An opening in March 2016 will put the show opening just under a year ahead of the new AVATAR land currently under construction.
Please remember that this information is not yet confirmed by Disney and should be treated as speculation. Plans and dates frequently change.
