    We have ADR on 11/13 at Yak & Yeti at 7:15pm. If we make it into the Rivers of Light 6:30pm show, is it feasible to leave early to make our reservation time? I know we won’t make the 7:45 Rivers of Light show.

    Hello Rae!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Yak & Yeti Restaurant is such a delicious venue! I must say it is my family’s favorite dining location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and I am glad to see you have made reservations there for your upcoming visit.

    I cannot think of a better way to wrap up a great day of fun at this amazing theme park than watching beautiful Rivers of Light to unwind and get ready for dinner. This show runs for approximately 15 minutes, so if you watch it at 6:30 p.m. you will have time to arrive at Yak & Yeti Restaurant for your reservation. I see no need to leave early mainly for two reasons: you will want to watch the show until the end, and you will have about 30 minutes to arrive at your dining location, which is very close to where Rivers of Light takes place. 

    Thank you for bringing a question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel again, Rae! I hope you have an amazing time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and don’t forget to stop by Pandora – The World of Avatar to enjoy Avatar Flight of Passage.

    Best magical wishes,
