The 9 BIG Updates from Walt Disney World (And Beyond) This Week (April 22-28, 2019)

4. Rivers of Light: We Are One to debut next month

Since its introduction back in 2017, Rivers of Light has been that rare Disney show that captures the magic and theme of the park it represents, without relying on familiar characters and IPs. By using lantern floats, theatrical imagery, actors (before budget cuts), and a beautiful musical score, this show was certainly unique among its peers. However, it looks like Disney will be making some major changes to this show beginning next month to make it more like what you can experience at other parks. 
 
Beginning on Memorial Day Weekend this year, Disney will be debuting Rivers of Light: We Are One, which introduces additional, stunning imagery and familiar animal characters from Disneynature films, along with a colorful tapestry of classic moments from Disney animation like the Lion King to help guests feel their connection with animals and the emotions and milestones that everyone shares in the journey through the great circle of life.

The Trophy Store, which is inspired by Michael Jordan's Trophy Room and sells sneakers and sports memorabilia, will be closing its Disney Springs location on May 31st. After this time this brand will be shifting operations to online-only as the boutique relocates in the Orlando area.

6. Adventureland Camel at Magic Kingdom currently under refurbishment

Guests visiting Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom might have noticed that the Spitting Camel in front of The Magic Carpets of Aladdin has been missing for the past few weeks. However, this removal is only temporary as the camel is currently undergoing refurbishment and is expected to return to the park in all his expectorating glory later this spring.
