We’re big fans of Walt Disney World’s nighttime extravaganzas. Fantasmic! Wishes nighttime spectacular – ending May 11th, by the way. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. Especially, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth!
Based on the popularity of these four shows, however, my wife and I have always been surprised that there’s no event-themed merchandise available.
Well, apparently Disney got “smart” and decided that with Animal Kingdom’s new show – Rivers of Light – they would remedy that!
We came across a large collection of merchandise inside Discovery Trading Company. This is the gift shop to your right as you gaze at the Tree of Life.
What did we find? Coffee cups, blankets, t-shirts, and, of course, different light-up items!
The prices were pretty much normal for Disney. The interesting part, though, was that 10% of the purchase amount goes to Disney Conservation Fund!
Folks, if you head over to Animal Kingdom to see Rivers of Light, stop and pick up a souvenir. Not only will you have a nice memento to take home, you’ll help support conservation!
