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.
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.
