    I would like to book Rivers of Light Dining Pkg using a dining plan. The website states - "Guests who wish to use their Disney dining plan for dinner shows must book cat 2 or 3 seating", does this mean 2 dining credits, what is cat 3?

    Greetings and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mona!

    The Rivers of Light Dining Package is the perfect way to enjoy a delicious meal at either Tusker House Restaurant or Tiffins restaurant followed by a viewing of the poignant Rivers of Light nighttime spectacular light and water show.

    My experience having just recently completed this dining package, was that I was presented, at the time of my meal, with a voucher for premium seating for Rivers of Light. My seats were not assigned, rather, I was able to select my seats within a reserved section, on a first-come, first-served basis, which is why I recommend arriving close to 30 minutes prior to show time using the entrance closest to Dinoland U.S.A. Please select a dining time no later than 2 hours, 30 minutes before show time for dining at Tusker House Restaurant and if dining at Tiffins, please select a dining time no later than 3 hours before show time.

    Both restaurants are eligible on some Disney Dining Plans, redeeming One (1) Table-Service Meal Entitlement for Tusker House Restaurant and Two Table-Service (2) Meal Entitlements for Tiffins.

    Regarding your concern with Category 2 or 3 seating, I believe you may be referring to our Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, or our Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue Dinner Shows, which do deal with this type of seating arrangement if redeeming some Disney Dining Plans.

    We hope this information is helpful, Mona and wish you a wonderful dining and show experience!
