We saw ROL feb 17 soon after it opened. I agree. it was unique to AK. And in a way it was calming and refreshing. It didn’t blow you away, but it took you away on a different journey. Great finish to a day at AK.Day 4 - ROL
So after our FOP ride we decided to go to the second showing of rivers of light (yes I got to finally see it!)
We walked in about 20 min before it started and go amazing seats down low(@Tuvalu made this seemingly innocent recommendation)
We were right beside where the floats come out!
Here are a few pictures

So what was my opinion?
Very moving and classy
And probably because it wasn’t all Disneyfied
One of my two favourite FW shows is Illuminations - love the artistry and the music
Is ROL that good - no - but it is now the only nighttime show that is well themed to its park AND not filled with all the same characters and music that is in all the other FW and shows.
Don’t get me wrong..
Magic Kingdom should have HEA or Wishes
DHS should have movie themed shows like Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar , Disney,
But Epcot and Animal Kingdom should embrace their base theme and showcase it in their entertaiment
I know I am standing (almost) alone with this view and I do not care if it is unpopular
I should not walk into every shop and see the exact same merchandise
I should not go to every park and ride the same rides
And I should not see the same rehashed night time show at every park
Will I see ROL again - you betcha!!
Well that is it for day 4 - next up Christmas at Epcot!!
