    Will the Festival of Lights in the animal kingdom be open by December 2016.

    Hi, Dalton!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You're asking one of the biggest questions about Walt Disney World Resort! I think there are a lot of us with plans to visit the parks near the end of the year who hope the Rivers of Light show is up and running in time for our vacations.

    Here's what I know... We all have to wait patiently until the show is announced on the Disney Parks Blog. That's the spot where all of the big announcements happen. I make sure I check it often! If wish I had extra insight, but know that I'm keeping a close eye on any developments just like you!

    Let me know if you have any additional questions about your December visit. I'm happy to help!

Meet the Panelist: Jen, Missouri

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
