    Does anyone know when they will have the Rivers of Light Dining Package available for October 2017?

    Hi Heather!

    I'm excited to hear you're planning to enjoy Disney's Animal Kingdom Park's newest nighttime spectacular, Rivers of Light. I was able to see the show in February, and was amazed at the beauty of this gorgeous show that uses water, music and light to showcase the splendor of nature and all living things.

    At this time, the Rivers of Light Dining Package is only accepting reservations through the end of September, but hopefully the dates will soon be extended into the fall. I encourage you to keep an eye on the Rivers of Light Dining Package page for any openings in October. Other great sources of the most up-to-date Walt Disney World Resort theme park information are the Disney Parks Blog or Walt Disney World on Twitter.

    What you may want to do is go ahead and make a dining reservation for either Tusker House Restaurant or Tiffin's for the day you're planning to visit Animal Kingdom. Once your FastPass+ reservation window opens, you can then make a FP+ reservation for Rivers of Light on that evening. If Rivers of Light dining packages become available, you can secure one at that time, and cancel your prior reservations.

    I hope you'll soon be able to make reservations for the Rivers of Light Dining Package! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
