Hey! What Happened to Rivers of Light?!

Seriously, folks.  What did happen to Rivers of Light?  With only 17 total votes, Animal Kingdom’s much-ballyhooed light show didn’t even make it out of the 1st Round of this past weekend’s competition!

Like Pandora’s attractions, is River’s poor showing another example of ‘not enough of us have experienced it yet’?  Or, even though we hear how beautiful it is, could it be that it’s not ‘all that’ after all?  What do you think?

Let’s start with just a tad bit more tournament history, my friends.  In fact, I really needed to record this on the web site somewhere.  That way, I wouldn’t have to research it every year!  Anyway, here’s our ‘honor roll’ of champions …

  • 2013 – Expedition Everest
  • 2014 – Expedition Everest
  • 2015 – Expedition Everest
  • 2016 – Kilimanjaro Safaris
  • 2017 – Expedition Everest
  • 2018 – Kilimanjaro Safaris

We’re a consistent bunch, I’ll say that much for us.  Only two champions across six years of voting.  Six years?!  A six-year All in WDW tradition?  Wow, these polls are popular!

Two quick comments before we proceed to the “main course” of today’s “meal”.  First, let me express my sympathies to Pandora’s Na’vi River Journey.  It missed our Top 10 by one measly vote!  Give it an Honorable Mention, OK?

Then, there was Kali River Rapids.  Our results scream one loud and clear message … the readers recommend that we “stay dry”, baby!

Anyway, Mrs. All in WDW and I often get asked, “We’re going to Disney.  Where should we stay?  What should we do when we get there?  Where should we eat?”

How about you?  Has a family-member or friend ever wanted your expert advice?  I love answering all of those questions.  Don’t you?  Of course, it takes a lot of time to dole out suggestions, doesn’t it?

Want to know what we do?  We let you, our readers, weigh in with your opinions!  We let you provide the advice!  That’s right!  It’s one of the main reasons why we created the All in WDW Readers’ “Top 10’s”!

Does someone want to know what attractions to hit when they visit the Animal Kingdom?  Well, you’ve already sorted through the various options for them!

In fact, if they follow this list, your family-members or friends will be right on target.  Folks, let me introduce you to your advice!  Welcome to the 2018 All in WDW Readers’ Top 10 Favorite Disney’s Animal Kingdom Attractions!

  1. Bob good morning,
    I don’t think rivers of light Failed to make it out of the first round is because not too many people have seen it yet. The reason I believe is that compared to the other Disney night time spectaculars this show is frankly put dull. It lacks the punch that illuminations has it lacks the flare of happily ever after
