    How far in advance is the Animal Kingdom's River of Lights schedule posted? In early December will only be there three nights and want to be able to go to Mickey Christmas and River of Lights. Uncertain which of two days to book Mickey Party.

    Welcome back, Cindy!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another great Walt Disney World Resort planning question. I'm so excited for my next visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. With Rivers of Light, the Tree of Life Awakenings and now Pandora - The World of Avatar, it's like a whole new park after dark.

    There is no guarantee, but I've noticed the calendar for Rivers of Light is currently showing dates approximately three months out. There's no telling what the fall or winter month's schedule might bring, but hopefully the pattern will remain much the same and the dates will appear a few months ahead-- just in time to purchase your Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets. 

    Have a wonderful time planning your festive vacation, Cindy, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
