    what are the hours for rivers of light and wishes labor day weekend 2017, and when is the monorail available?

    Hello, June,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Doesn't Rivers of Light look amazing? To see when it is scheduled, you can check the Park Hours for the dates you'll be at the Animal Kingdom. Once you enter the date at the top of the page, you can click on Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to see what is scheduled for that day. However, it appears that they haven't added that information yet.  I'd encourage you to continue to check back for updates.

    I also have some exciting news; when you visit in September, there will be a new fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom called Happily Ever After and by the description I think it will be so magical.  To check the time for the fireworks, you'll do the same as I described above; just click on the Magic Kingdom Park after you select the specific date. It does appear to be scheduled for 9 PM on Saturday/Sunday/Monday over Labor Day Weekend 2017, but please keep in mind times may be subject to change. 

    The monorail generally begins running 45 before a theme park's opening time until one hour after a theme park's closing time. 

    If we can help with any further questions, please let us know. Wishing you a Delightfully Disney Day! -Kara
