    My family will be at animal kingdom 7/10 what time will River of lights be? Also should I get a fast pass? If I do get fast pass will I be able get more fast passes after I use first two since River of lights is at night?

    Hi Sandy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you are considering the Rivers of Light show! I am happy to discuss your options.

    As of now, the scheduled time for Rivers of Light on July 10th of this year is 9:15 p.m. You could certainly reserve a Fast Pass+ but, if you do, you will not be able to secure any additional Fast Pass+ selections until after The Rivers of Light Show (or after the time window for the third Fast Pass+ selection has passed).

    A second option would be the Rivers of Light Dining Package. With the dining package, you would receive access to a reserved seating area for the Rivers of Light show. You could then use your three initial Fast Pass+ selections for other rides and attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. My family reserved the Rivers of Light Dining package for our next visit and our reserved seating is for the first show. So keep in mind that there may be additional shows later in the evening. At this time, there are no additional shows scheduled for your date, but please double-check the park calendar as it gets closer to your visit.

    If you do the Rivers of Light Dining Package, you will have a choice of Tusker House Restaurant, which is a character meal, and Tiffins, a signature restaurant. Although Tiffins is fabulous, we booked our dining package for Rivers of Light at Tusker House so that we can see Donald and friends!

    Sandy, I do hope that you are able to enjoy Rivers of Light! I would definitely book a Fast Pass+ for it or do the Dining Package.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
