    We are planning an October trip and I'm trying to determine which parks we will be visiting. I've noticed that Animal Kingdom seems to be closing at 7:00 pm every night in October. Does that mean Rivers of Light will not take place in the fall?

    Hello Jacqueline!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am also an advanced planner and I like to check the online calendar for park hours months ahead of our visit.

    I am very excited about Rivers of Light, which is offered daily at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. I have not heard any news informing that this show will not be offered in the fall. Since we are still months ahead, I suggest that you keep checking the calendar until more information is available for activities offered at the theme park. Remember that park hours can change without notice.

    Since you will be visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, don’t forget to plan your adventures in Pandora – The World of Avatar. Don’t miss the chance to book FastPass+ selections for the much anticipated Avatar Flight of Passage or Na’vi River Journey, which can be 30 days before your visit or up to 60 days if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel.

    Thank you for sending your question our way! I hope you have a magical visit.

    See ya real soon,
