Rivers of Light Opening in 2017

Rivers of Light Opening in 2017

You know when your friend promises to help you with something and he says he’ll be there then he all of a sudden can’t make it but promises to help next week, then next week comes and he promises the week after, and this continues over and over until you feel like a total idiot because this guys has said he will do sometime 50 times but he never does?  Well that’s how I feel about Rivers of Light.  Ok, I’m slightly exaggerating, but the point is we’ve been waiting since last April for this show and now Disney has announced there will be a Rivers of Light opening in 2017.

Yeah, yeah….

The thing is we don’t know exactly when in 2017.  It would seem to be right around the corner considering they ran a Rivers of Light Preview show just a couple weeks ago, which many said is a technological marvel.  There could be some slight bugs to work out, or they could be answering the criticism that it’s a beautiful show but lacks a real climactic ending and can be a bit slow at times.  Here’s hoping they are making some positive additions. And I hope that when they actually open it it’s a really good show because there’s a lot riding on its success to attract more visitors to the Animal Kingdom which is widely regarded as a 1/2 Day Park.

In that case I’m ok with the delay if it means we are really going to get an amazing show like the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular has been at Hollywood Studios.  I hope it’s just around the corner, but I won’t hold my breath until it comes out.  Stay tuned for more announcements on the opening.

If you enjoyed this article, as always I appreciate it if you’d share it with others via social media.  I work hard at making this website into a useful resource for you and your family to plan your visit to Walt Disney World, and I hope it can help you! Thanks 🙂
