    Rivers of Light merchandise is in several shops.
    Cast members with signs to help direct guests to the proper area for Rivers of Light.
  • Page Number: 14
    The sign is a little misleading since the entrance is no where near where she was standing.
    Walking through the Flame Tree BBQ seating area.
    The theater was starting to fill up for Rivers of Light. It was 8pm and the show was at 9:15pm tonight.

    Looking down at one of the smaller lotus blossoms
    It was quickly getting darker.
  • Page Number: 20
    Looking across at 8:20pm two of the three stand by areas look to be full already. The areas on the left that are not full are the dining package.
    Flights of Wonder is all quiet. They leave a couple of lights on the stage at night.
  • Page Number: 21
    A posted 15 minute wait for the Safari so I decided to give a night time one a try.
    As I walked the queue I did not see any other guests except for one family dropping off a stroller.
  • Page Number: 22
    Turned out to be a three minute walk and I had the load station to myself for a while.. except for the handful of cast members.
    It was a fairly quiet safari.. Not a lot of animals visible.
    The crocs were out as usual.
  • Page Number: 23
    A good portion looked like this... just black.. or maybe shadows.
    Hyenas laying around.
    One did lift their head.

    A giraffe moving around.
    This zebra decided to come out of the dark on a blind corner and scare our driver.

    The male lion is up on the rocks, but a little too dark in this photo.
    Harambe Wildlife Parti going on as I passed through.
    The Tree of Life Awakenings were going on. It was 9pm as I passed by.
  • Page Number: 26
    The view from the Flame Tree BBQ seating area. The projector and lights shine right on you as they illuminate the trees for the preshow for Rivers of Light.
    Looking up into the trees at the lights.
  • Page Number: 27
    The Discovery Island Carnivale wrapping up the last performance of the night.
    The stand by was closed as I passed by, it was 10 minutes to show time so not a surprise.
    They were still working to seat guests from what was left of the original standby queue.
  • Page Number: 28
    The bridge was 2-3 guests deep.
    Along the walkway in Asia it was 1-2 guests deep in most spots.
    The view from one of the standby areas right before show time.
  • Page Number: 29
    Guests standing on the other side of the walkway near the restrooms.. I did not go over there but cannot see how it would be even a remotely good view.
    I doubled back to the bridge and decided to watch from there as it appeared the best of the standby/outside the theater options.

    Many of the projections were much more clear from this angle.
