    Going to Disney last week of April with my 12 year old. Doing the Rivers of Light Dining Package and breakfast at the Tusker House. Which show do you recommend, the early one or late one? Is it still to light out for the early show? Crowds? Thanks! JW

    Hi Judy, 

    How exciting to be planning a Walt Disney World vacation! My family absolutely loves Donald's Safari Breakfast at the Tusker House Restaurant. In fact, we consider it a "must do" and the perfect way to start an Animal Kingdom day. Booking the Rivers of Light Dining Package is a great plan for ensuring premium seats for the show. I recommend the later showing, as the illuminated boats, lanterns, and lights are a major part of the production. It just wouldn't be the same if it isn't dark out. If you have the dining package, you don't have to stress about crowds and seats. As long as you get to the Discovery River lagoon at least 30 minutes prior to show time, you will be fine. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
