    Hi. We plan to be at Animal Kingdom on 17 October. I want to make reservations for Rivers of Light Dining Package but no dates are listed on the calendar after 30 September. Is Rivers of Light closing in October?

    Hi Peter,

    Glad to know you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort for next October. The fall is a great time to visit the Resort. Taste your way around the world during Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and get spooky with Mickey and his friends in Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    Rivers of Light brings the magic of Mother Nature with a mesmerizing spectacle of music, water projections and special effects. And a great way to experience it is with a Rivers of Light Dining Package. You get to enjoy an amazing breakfast, lunch or dinner, and then receive VIP passes for the show.

    At this time, there are no plans of discontinuing the show, and it is more than likely that Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park hours have not been finalized for October. I am pretty sure that reservations will become available later in the spring.

    One last tip: an easy way to plan your Disney vacation, is with the My Disney Experience mobile app, which can help you with FastPass+ and dining reservations, as well as park hours and even attraction wait times. Happy planning!
