This week, we hosted a special #DisneyParksLIVE chat on “Rivers of Light” from the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – it was our first-ever “video” live chat hosted on the Disney Parks Blog.

During the #DisneyParksLIVE chat, we shared a new behind-the-scenes look at the Animal Spirit Guide floats that will serve as a guiding force in Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s first night-time show, “Rivers of Light.” If you missed it, you can still go “backstage” this weekend and see how these amazing floats were created.

And did you see that Captain America will begin making appearances next month at Disney California Adventure park? Also swinging in to join Cap on his latest mission in Hollywood Land will be everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Captain America and Spider-Man Come to Disney California Adventure Park April 3

Look for Spider-Man and Captain America at Disney California Adventure Park beginning April 3, and you can catch Steve Rogers in “Captain America: Civil War” in theaters in 3D on May 6, 2016. Check Shawn’s story for more details.
