This new version of the show will include new imagery, familiar characters from Disneynature films, and moments from Disney animation that illustrate humankind’s connection with animals and the emotions and milestones we all share in our journey through the great circle of life.

Rivers of Light: We Are One will weave together an original musical score and Disney themes to create a powerful arrangement that inspires and carries us through moments of discovery, fun, friendship, fear, love and family.

  1. I love RoL..it’s our family’s favorite nighttime show. I’m sorta disappointed in the use of the IP animation but I’ll probably love it just the same. “We Are One” is one of my favorite Disney musical pieces…I have the CD and play it frequently.

  2. I like the idea of using IP in this show. It really needs something to make it a must see show. I liked it as is, but I feel no real pull to make sure I do it to close my night at AK each visit like I do with the closing shows at the other parks. Even Illuminations was a must do without IP added, but something about Epcot has never needed any characters etc…I don’t know why but it works as its own entity.
