    Hi, I have a question about the Rivers of Light Dining Package. How do you know which showing you'd be allocated? I'll have two young children with me. Many thanks, Sara.

    Hi Sara,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family did the Rivers of Light Dining Package on our last visit and it was a perfect way to end our day at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park!

    I also just made another reservation for the dining package for our upcoming trip. When I reached the confirmation page for our advanced dining reservation, the confirmation indicated which show we would attend. Our dining package includes tickets to the first show. When I review my dining reservations in My Disney Experience, the reservation for the dining package says "Tusker House Restaurant Lunch - ROL 1st Show." My advice to you is, when dining package reservations open for the dates of your visit make a reservation and you should see the assigned show on your reservation confirmation. As always, remember that dining experiences are subject to change.
    On our last visit, the cast member who served us gave us our show tickets during our meal. The tickets instructed us to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to show time. We arrived 15 minutes prior to show time and were luckily able to get seats in the third row on the end of the row. Having said that, I suggest that you arrive at least 20-30 minutes prior to the show to have a better selection of seats in the reserved seating area. I also suggest that you sit closer to the front. I was able to see some details in the show from the third row that I had not seen when I saw the show from the back of the amphitheater. 

    Sara, it is a gorgeous show. On prior visits, we have been able to take the cutest photos with the Disney PhotoPass photographer before the show starts. So, look for the photographer when you arrive!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
