    How far walk from Navi river journey to the night boat parade in AK

    Hi Cindi,

    I hope you're looking forward to a roaring great visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! With the perfect mixture of immersive culture, inspiring wildlife, incredible entertainment, and enjoyable fun, you're going to LOVE it!

    I'd plan on it taking around 15 minutes at an average pace to walk to the seating area for Rivers of Light from Na'vi River Journey, but you'll want to make sure that you leave plenty early. Rivers of Light can be quite popular and crowds line up rather early. If you don't have a FastPass+ selection or a dining package guaranteeing you reserved seating, I'd suggest asking a Cast Member how early they recommend getting in line on the day that you'll be there. During some seasons, Guests start lining up a couple of hours beforehand! If there happens to be two showings during the evening, the second one is usually the less crowded of the two. The tricky thing is that I don't want you to leave too early and miss Pandora - The World of Avatar at night. The entire land comes to life through the magic of bioluminescence, and it's spectacular! Disney's Animal Kingdom after dark is simply breathtaking!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cindi, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
