Before this weekend’s official debut of “Rivers of Light” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we packed the week with several behind-the-scenes peeks at the new nighttime show – and even shared a special “glowing” wallpaper to celebrate the occasion.

Our exclusive blog series, “All in the Details” looked at the show’s theming and details, amazing costumes and four Animal Spirit Guides. We also took you inside a “Rivers of Light” music recording session to show how the original score takes guests on a journey that explores the relationship between the human and animal world.

Check out Jennifer’s earlier story for more information on “Rivers of Light” and the recording session.

Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park

This week, we also shared an exciting update that Disney California Adventure will be the place to experience the Summer of Heroes – and the action begins with the May 27 grand opening of the thrilling, rocking attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!

There will be many ways to step into Super Hero stories with Summer of Heroes, May 27 through September 10 at Disney California Adventure – so, go now and check out Erin’s original story for all of the details.

Here are some of the other stories we worked on this week.


  • I got a Fast Pass for Rivers of Light for April. This means I cannot get another Fast Pass that day. Is it worth giving up other Fast Passes? Have people been able to enjoy the show without using Fast Passes? It seems like a waste, since the show is at night.
