    When, oh when will December Rivers of Light dining packages be released?? Only ADR I don't currently have booked and am just waiting on pins and needles.

    Hi Debbie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am very sad to say that we are all waiting on Rivers of Light Dining Package dates to be released for December! 

    Unfortunately, I do not have any additional information though I did call to double-check with a cast member in dining. But I can say to keep checking! We just did the dining package on our most recent visit in July and it was fantastic. We dined at Tusker House and our girls loved the character interactions. We actually booked a fourth Fast Pass+ selection for DINOSAUR in between dinner and the show. We did that Fast Pass+ and got to the show 15 minutes prior to show time. Although I was a little worried, there was still great seating in our reserved section. My girls and I got seats in the third row on the end. 

    You could also go ahead and make a reservation for the restaurant you would prefer, then change to the dining package if it is offered for the dates of your visit. I had to do that with our last reservation. I originally had a reservation at Tusker House restaurant for 6:00 p.m. but when we decided to do the dining package, was able to change it to a 5:35 p.m. reservation. Tiffins is also nice, but we decided that with 10-year old girls, the character experience was better. I highly recommend the dining package because it saves you a Fast Pass+ selection and you do not have to stand in a long line to try to get good seats. Fast Pass+ just has us spoiled - no more long lines!

    Debbie, I hope you get to experience the show. Try to also find the PhotoPass photographer who is walking around the venue. We love taking an official photo before the show!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
