Rivers of Light debuted in February 2017, after a nearly year-long delay. Notable for its original IP, not referencing any Disney animation characters, Rivers of Light calls four Animal Spirit Guides — an elephant, owl, a tiger, and a turtle — whose spiritual journeys frame the production, which features water screens, physical props, and lighting effects.

Agree with Russell - this show surpassed my expectations. I especially liked the massive water fountain/hose things that fired off throughout the event. Definitely worth seeing at least once during your vacation to WDW.

Animal Kingdom is one night-time spectacular away from being the strongest 'all day park' at WDW.
Unfortunately, Rivers of Light feels too lightweight both in length and production value to truly match Happily Ever After or Fantasmic....skip this and watch the projections on the Tree of Life instead.
