    Would I be able to go to see Rivers of Light after a dinner dining reservation at The Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom? I'm not sure if Rainforest Cafe is considered to be outside of the park or not but I would love to be able to go to the show!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle! You must be so excited that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is just a month away. 

    The entrance to Rainforest Cafe at Disney's Animal Kingdom is outside the gates of the theme park so you do not need park admission to be able to dine there. This is super convenient for families who are not using the Park Hopper ticket option but still want to experience some family fun with themed dining at each different park! That being said, if you do want to enter Disney's Animal Kingdom after your dining reservation to enjoy a showing of Rivers of Light, theme park admission is required.

    If you do decide to head into Disney's Animal Kingdom at night, be sure to stop by Pandora - The World of Avatar to see the Valley of Mo'ara come alive with stunning bioluminescence. Plants, flowers, and even the ground under your feet are all aglow everywhere you look! There are not many better ways than that to end your day at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Let us know if you have any more questions about your upcoming magical vacation, Michelle!
