    Hi, what is the best restaurant to watch Animal Kingdoms Rivers of light from? Many Thanks Nathan

    Hi Nathan, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question! 

    I’ve seen Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park several times and I really find it to be an underrated show. I love the imaginative use of music, projections, fountains and even live actors to tell the story. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this story will be “re-imagined” this summer as part of a new show Rivers of Light: We are One

    There are no restaurants at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park that gives you a view of the show itself. Your best option would either be to get reserved seating with a Rivers of Light Dining Package or a Rivers of Light Dessert Party. We really enjoy the Dining Package when we’ve purchased it, especially for one of Walt Disney World Resort’s culinary hidden gems: Tiffins. I haven’t had a chance to try the Dessert Party yet, but the desserts themselves look beautiful… and tasty!

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other planning questions for your upcoming vacation. 

    Have a Magical Day,
