Today, at the D23 Expo, more details about Animal Kingdom’s transformation into a bigger and better park were revealed. A couple of years ago, Disney announced that a new nighttime show called “Rivers of Light” and “Pandora – The World of Avatar” will be coming to Animal Kingdom. These two experiences were designed to turn Animal Kingdom into a park that you can spend the entire day in. Today, they revealed even more about these experiences and the transformation of Animal Kingdom into a full day park.
The first of these details were new information about the park’s newest land, Pandora – The World of Avatar. The highlight attraction of this new land is going to be “AVATAR Flight of Passage.” In this new attraction, guests will be able to ride on a banshee. This will recreate one of the most thrilling scenes of the film in a more personalized and fun experience.
Another new detail was of the “Rivers of Light” show. This new nighttime spectacular will combine floating lanterns, music, water screens with projections, and animal imagery. The ride is expected to open in the spring of 2016.
The final detail was the announcement of a new nighttime Kilimanjaro Safari tour. This will involve extending the hours of the popular attraction and bringing new animals into the ride. These new animals will be African dogs and hyenas.
