It’s been a great week of announcements coming out of Walt Disney World, and it’s only Thursday.  I wonder what tomorrow could hold?  For those of you who maybe aren’t as tuned into the Disney Parks Blog like I am, I thought I’d give you a brief rundown of what’s going on

  • A new show ‘River of Lights’ is finally set to open February 17, 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  This show is a first nighttime spectacular for Animal Kingdom and will include fountains, floats, music and live acting.  The show will take place on the Discovery River.
  • Pandora – The World of Avatar is set to open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 27th, 2017.  This new area is going to be amazing with floating mountains, bioluminescence and two new excursions that will take us to the next level, or so they say! 
  • A new firework spectacular is set to debut May 12, 2017 at Magic Kingdom.  The new 18 minute show is called ‘Happily Ever After’ and will include fireworks, art projections, lasers and lights and a beautiful music accompaniment.  You may recognize some characters in the show from beloved movies like Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, The Lion King and more.  This will be replacing ‘Wishes’, so if you love it be sure to catch it before it’s gone.       

Like I said, it’s been a big week of exciting announcements.  Now go start planning your spring/summer Walt Disney World vacation so you can check out all the new fun stuff!
