    We are visiting the week before Thanksgiving and waiting anxiously to find out information on the River of Lights. Any updates? Particularly, if fast passes are needed, when will we be notified of details?

    Hi Paula! I completely understand your anxiousness about not knowing what is happening in the Animal Kingdom Park. We will also be at Walt Disney World at that time and have hoped for the new Rivers of Light show to be opened at that time.

    Nothing has been officially announced yet by Disney but my hopes have been raised as there are quite a few rumors out there saying that this show is close to being open. Obviously after the last issues they will make sure everything is up and running successfully before making any announcements. Keep following the Disney Parks Blog as that will be one of the first places all official information will be released.

    It is likely that this show will have FastPass designation as well as dining packages. The Jungle Book show that replaced it had both of these options during its tenure so I will assume Rivers of Light will follow suit. But this is an assumption so until the word is out we will all just be anxiously waiting and hoping for a Thanksgiving opportunity to see it.
