Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for August 28, 2013; Buoys and Buildings


Buoys in the Water: We have been talking for weeks about the rumor first brought to us by the Disney Hipsters about a “World of Color” style nighttime water parade, called Rivers of Light, coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Besides rumors, we haven’t seen much to back it up yet, however Screamscape.com may just have the first piece of evidence for us in a photo of buoys in the water around the area we think this parade might be staged.  Click here to take a look.

I have heard conflicting reports on the purpose behind these buoys, but their very existence is certainly interesting.  Buoys like this mark hazards under the waterline, and the need for these can indicate that Disney expects people unfamiliar with these rivers to be navigating them soon.  Make of that what you will.

Festival of the Lion King Construction Moves On:  So why exactly did Disney choose to make the announcement about a new theater for Festival of the Lion King a couple of weeks back after delaying it for so long?  Well, thanks to the Disney Blog we now know why they absolutely needed to let the cat out of the back.  The answer is, construction was about to get to the point where everyone in the park could see exactly what was happening.  Click here to see the photos
