“Some of the nighttime events for Disney's Animal Kingdom could be starting as early as this summer...including, perhaps the new nighttime spectacular.”
This is the first we are hearing of this, but it makes plenty of sense. We know the new Festival of the Lion King Theater will be open this summer, and with it a vastly expanded Harambe. Also, we have been hearing for months how the “Rivers of Light” nighttime water parade has already begun testing. So it certainly stands to reason that some new night events would accompany the new theater for a summer opening.
