    We are going to AK on December 12. The River of Lights is scheduled for 6:30. If we do not have a FP for this, what time do you suggest we get in line to make sure we get a seat? Thank you.

    Hello there, Patricia! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop back by and allowing us to help you plan another vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is known for its amazing animals and daring attractions during the day. However, this park also comes alive at night in very unique ways! Pandora - The World of Avatar completely transforms and glimmers with bio-luminescence after the sun goes down and The Tree of Life stirs to life with visual displays of animal spirits! 

    Guests visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom after dark can also watch the visually stunning Rivers of Light that brings together Eastern festivals and modern technology! Rivers of Light is a gorgeous display of special effects and stirring music that is inspired by the natural world and its amazing inhabitants. If you are planning on viewing this Nighttime Spectacular, it is recommended that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to showtime. If you are concerned about getting the absolute perfect seat, it definitively doesn't hurt to arrive a bit earlier than that! As someone that's on the shorter side, I always tend to arrive as early as possible in order to secure a good seat!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful time visiting Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to let us know if we can assist you in planning any other part of your vacation!
