Set to debut in spring 2016, “Rivers of Light” will take place on Discovery River between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest. It will combine live performers, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. A pair of hosts will journey onto the river on lantern vessels “for a dramatic dance of water and light to summon animal spirits.”

In addition to the show,the park’s iconic Tree of Life will be lit up by magical fireflies.
