The Rivers of Light show has been discontinued and Disney KiteTales is now performed at the Discovery River amphitheatre.
This vibrant show takes place on Discovery River at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest. Live music and performers, floating lanterns, water screens, and swirling animal imagery are all used during the performance to showcase the beauty of all living things. The show begins as the storyteller hosts set out from the river banks on intricately-detailed, lantern-adorned boats for a breathtaking dance combining water and light to summon the spirits of the animals. This display boasts a celebratory combination of song, light, and color with a grand finale so glorious that you are sure to feel a sense of "peace and oneness with nature."
NOTE: A dining package is available for this show! When you book lunch or dinner at Tiffins, you will receive a voucher for reserved seating to that evening's show with the purchase of your meal.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to specify that you want the dining package when you book your advanced dining reservation.
Guests can enjoy a sweet ending to their day by with an array of Disney’s Animal Kingdom-themed, house-made desserts, snacks, and specialty alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages before enjoying a VIP view of Rivers of Light.
