    I am planning to visit AK on November 17th and have a Tusker House Dining reservation, but would like to include Rivers of Light Package to it. When will the calendar for November be released for Rivers of light?

    Jambo, Hector!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question!

    I'm excited to hear you have plans to experience Disney's Animal Kingdom Park's newest nighttime offering, Rivers of Light. It's a gorgeous show that celebrates nature through the use of music, water, and lights - I loved seeing it in February! The Rivers of Light Dining Package provides Guests with a delicious meal at one of two featured restaurants and reserved seating for the show. The seats are great - right in the center!

    At this time, the Rivers of Light Dining Package is only accepting reservations through the end of September, but hopefully the dates will soon be extended into the fall. I encourage you to keep an eye on the Rivers of Light Dining Package page for any openings in November. Other great sources of the most up-to-date Walt Disney World Resort theme park information are the Disney Parks Blog or Walt Disney World on Twitter.

    I'm happy to hear you've already made an advance dining reservation for Tusker House Restaurant. Once your FastPass+ reservation window opens, you can then make a FP+ reservation for Rivers of Light on that same evening. If Rivers of Light dining packages become available, you can secure one at that time, and cancel your prior reservations. (The dining package cannot be added to current reservations) On the September Rivers of Light schedule, the show is only offered on select evenings, so I would expect future schedules to be similar. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, and my fingers are crossed that we will soon see available dates for Rivers of Light in October and beyond. Have a magical day - Diane W.
