    On 4/1/19 we are doing Tusker House package w/ first seating for rivers of light at 8:30 (think it's the only show though). Park closes at 8pm. Looking it up, sunset is 7:45pm. Is it possible to see pandora at night and rivers of light too?

    Hello, Lesley! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You have three amazing things on your Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park itinerary for the first day of April! After your delectable (and fun) meal with Safari Donald Duck and friends, you'll have premium seating for Rivers of Light (one of my favorite nighttime shows at Walt Disney World Resort). And whether you see Pandora - The World of Avatar during the day or night, you'll be dazzled by its breathtaking views.

    Depending on the time of your Tusker House Restaurant reservation, you may be able to see Pandora's floating mountains and bioluminescence right as the sun sets on the evening of your visit. Since your premium seating for Rivers of Light is not assigned, you will want to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the show to acquire the best seats within the reserved section. You'll enter the theater from the entrance closest to DinoLand U.S.A., so you'll turn right as you leave Pandora - The World of Avatar, then pass Discovery Island and the first entrance to DinoLand U.S.A. Depending on crowd levels, this walk could take up to 10 minutes. You'll then want to give yourselves plenty of time to check in (using your voucher from Tusker House Restaurant) and find the best seats for you and your family before the show begins.

    I hope you do have the opportunity to see (and hear!) all that Pandora - The World of Avatar has to offer at night, and I just know you'll love the grandeur and elegance of Rivers of Light, too.

    Enjoy your visit!
