Rivers of Light We Are One show

Disney's Animal Kingdom will officially debut a an updated version of Rivers of Light tonight.

"Rivers of Light: We Are One" introduces Disney characters into the show's projection displays, including scenes from the Lion King, Jungle Book, Bambi and Brother Bear, and the use of the Circle of Life musical score. The show's effects remain the same, although parts of the show have been slightly reworked, including efforts to add more impact to the finale. Sadly the Shaman of Songs actors that were removed last year have not been brought back to the show.

Also starting tonight is a new Lion King story at the Tree of Like Awakenings. The projection show begins just after dark, at around 8:50pm this weekend though to park close.  Awakenings take place every 10 minutes, with the Lion King story set to play daily through September 30 2019.
