‘Rivers of Light: We Are One’ and More Debuts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

“Rivers of Light: We Are One” debuts this weekend at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It is the next chapter of this beautiful nighttime show. It tells the story of our connection with animals and the emotions and milestones we all share in our journey through the great circle of life. This new version of the show introduces additional imagery and familiar animal characters from Disneynature films and classic moments from Disney animation.

Also starting this weekend, the Tree of Life awakens each evening with a new story inspired by this summer’s release of “The Lion King.” Moments from Simba’s journey are depicted set to a musical score comprised of new arrangements of familiar songs. And all summer long, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is celebrating “The Lion King,” from the Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party and unique photo opportunities to the “Festival of the Lion King” and special decorations throughout the park.


All of this kicks of May 24, 2019 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort.
