    Can you see the Animal Kingdom water parade from walkways or do you have to get a seat in the stadium?

    Hello Christine!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask a question about the enchanting nighttime scene that is Rivers of Light.   

    Rivers of Light is simply stunning, the laser lights, water features and music combine in one of the most beautiful shows on Disney property.   I was in awe as I watched it.   The best way to see the show is inside the theater on the Discovery River.  Disney FastPass+ is available for this nighttime show as well as the Rivers of Light Dining Package.  Both of these options would give you access to seating in a special part of the theater.   If you don't want to do this you can always enter in the standby section.   I encourage you to come early if you plan on doing this as seats do tend to fill up quickly.   My family will often grab a snack and enter early to rest our legs while we wait.   It's a great time to talk and reminisce about your favorite adventures you experienced during the day.

    You may be able to catch glimpses of the show from the bridge between DinoLand U.S.A. and Expedition Everest but it will be very crowded.  I wouldn't want you to miss out on the beauty.  The show is approximately 15 minutes long and is often shown twice daily during busier times of the year.

    I hope this has helped, Christine.  Please stop by again with any other questions you may have about traveling to Walt Disney World.
