During a recent expedition on Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I was surprised to spot the Disney Delivery Guy on the savanna.

Rivers of Light” will celebrate the kinship of all living things during this nighttime water and light show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

We have created several logo products for this new show including apparel for adults and kids. Annual Passholders should look for a unique T-shirt created especially for them (make sure to show a valid Annual Pass to purchase).

As seen in the video above, we are introducing a new animal-themed totem pole wand to the Made with Magic collection. The wand allows guests to become a part of the show by lighting up in time with or in the same color scheme at select nighttime spectaculars at Disney Parks. The new wand is similar to the previously released Sorcerer Mickey wand seen in this video in that you can change the color patterns of other select Made with Magic items.

Look for these items in select Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations when Rivers of Light comes alive at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


  • Why is there no CD? I understand there was one with the initial offering of merchandise but Cast members told me there are no plans to get any more.

  • I LOVE seeing the new “Unboxing” videos!! so much fun and that Delivery Guy….so funny!!! keep them coming !

  • The ending to this video is so cute! I love it. Great work – and beautiful new merchandise!

  • To clarify, do Made with Magic items *work* with ROL? The video above references “select nighttime spectaculars,” but I haven’t seen any confirmation that Rivers of Light is currently Made with Magic enabled .

    • @Michael – The Made with Magic wand and other Made with Magic items will interact with Rivers of Light. You can also use the animal-themed totem wand at other select nighttime spectaculars at Disney Parks.

  • I love every time there’s a new unboxing video! The charisma between Delivery Guy and Steven is amazing!

    • @Sarah – Thank you for the kind words 🙂

  • I cannot wait to see this in 19 days with our dining package! Definitely going to pick up a few of these items. That made with magic wand would be perfect our DLR nighttime stuff 🙂

    • @Liz – How wonderful you will be visiting! Safe travels and I hope you have a fantastic time.

  • Made With Magic + Animal Kingdom = Perfection

  • We are trying to book rivers of lights in July and it is not allowing us to. Any ideas as to why or when it will be available?

  • These unboxing videos are my favorite thing parks blog does. Steven you are so much fun and do a fantastic job hosting these! ??

    • @Serena – Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy the videos. We have a lot of fun putting them together.

  • Will the items be added to the app (especially the throw)?

    Also, will there be a CD?


    • @Jonathan – I’ve not heard an ETA as to when or if items will be added. I believe a CD will be offered later but I don’t have a confirmed release date.
