Disney's Animal Kingdom News for November 23, 2016: Reopenings

Dinosaur Reopens: After several months, Dinosaur has reopened with more than just a mere sprucing up. Here is a video of the new effects including a video effect of running dinosaurs and some additional laser effects. Other upgrades have been made as well. For example, the baby  Hadrosaurs move, audio effects during the chase scene have been improved, and now there is more lightning and meteors.

Flame Tree Pagodas: Also reopening is all of the outside seating areas of the Flame Tree BBQ. The Orlando Park News has some nice photos of the covered walkway between all of the seating areas. While I was concerned this would effect the serene aesthetic of the area, it seems to blend in well and not be overly obtrusive. So while the food quality has gone down in recent years, it is still a pretty place to eat.

Rivers of Light?: Fresh of the disheartening lack of any information about Rivers of Light at the recent Destination D event, word from WDWMagic is that there will be cast member previews coming this weekend. Frankly, I am not sure what to make of all of this anymore. We keep hearing its ready, but maybe Disney has decided to hold off opening it until we get closer to Avatar being open. Certainly, if they were going to begin showing this for the holidays we are almost out of time. I suppose at this point we just need to wait for some kind of announcement.
