Bad news for fans hoping to go and see Rivers of Light this month when it was due to open on April 22nd.

Disney have just announced that the grand opening of this along with all other nighttime events at Disney’s Animal Kingdom have delayed.

This means not only will Rivers of Light not be opening on April 22nd but we also won’t get to see:

  • Nighttime Kilimanjaro Safaris
  • Nightly Tree of Life Awakening

Disney haven’t really said much on the delay but did mention to expect to see details on the opening of nighttime events at the park around mid to late May. My guess is that we should expect to see all of this open at some point in June/July.

Disappointing news for sure but the delay is obviously a necessity for Disney to get Rivers of Light right!

In the meantime, enjoy this incredible video Disney released of  the Tree of Life Awakening:
