Animal Kingdom: New Nighttime Show and More!

Animal Kingdom is currently under its biggest expansion yet.  While the highlight of the expansion is adding Avatar Land (yep, I’m not kidding), there are other things coming to the park, including a new nighttime show and the return of Festival of the Lion King.

A Disney Parks Blog post earlier this month announced that the new nighttime spectacular “’Rivers of Light’ promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, delighting our guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”

While the new show sounds similar to World of Color or Fantasmic!, it does remind me of Brother Bear, based on the artist’s concept below.

In June, the live show Festival of the Lion King will return to Animal Kingdom, this time to a new location in the Africa section of the park.

And finally, my agent Jennifer Hardy posted that Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade will have its last run on May 31st, after 12 years.  No replacement parade has been announced.

What are your thoughts on the Animal Kingdom expansion?
