Disney's Animal Kingdom to open 'Rivers of Light - We Are One' this summer

Apr 22, 2019 in "Rivers of Light"

Disney's Animal Kingdom will debut an updated version of Rivers of Light this summer featuring Disney movie imagery and music.

Titled “Rivers of Light: We Are One,” the revised show will introduce additional imagery and familiar animal characters from Disneynature films, along with classic moments from Disney animation.

The soundtrack will also be updated to include arrangements of the original Rivers of Light music alongside familiar Disney themes.

These changes appear to have been in response to a luke-warm reception to the original early 2017 Rivers of Light by park guests. Although many fans appreciate the subtlety and on-theme design of the show, some guests have expressed disappointment in not seeing and hearing familiar Disney characters and themes in the show. 

The new show will begin on Memorial Day Weekend 2019.
