    where is the best place to watch rivers of light in Animal Kingdom

    Hi, Kim!

    It is so exciting to see Disney's Animal Kingdom come alive at night. While amazing by day, it is truly magical at night. The park will really be full of energy come May 27, 2017, as Pandora - The World of Avatar has its grand opening. So much excitement happening in Disney's Animal Kingdom!

    Rivers of Light has its own amphitheater for guest seating. You have a few options to secure a seat. You can use the Stand-by line (line up early as sits will fill quickly), book a FastPass+, or reseve a Rivers of Light dining package that includes dinner and VIP seating for the show. My personal preference is the dining package at Tusker House. I enjoy the delicious food then the guaranteed seating without having to use one of my valuable FastPass+ selections.

    Rivers of Light show times vary each evening so check the park hours and information for your travel dates. Enjoy a beautiful evening in Disney's Animal Kingdom!
