    I have a reservation for the Tusker House in Feb 2018. I didn't see an option for Tusker house and the dinner show. Is this because it is too far in advance for the night time shows? Will I be able to get the reserved seats when the come available?

    Hi Deanne,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family and I did the Rivers of Light Dining Package at Tusker House Restaurant on our most recent visit and the show was mesmerizing. Watching my girls see it for the first time was one of those magical Disney experiences that instantly become a favorite memory.

    Although the Rivers of Light dining package dates have not been released for February yet, I would continue to check back as it gets closer to the dates of your trip. You are not alone in this quest and I am hopeful we will have more information soon. When I was planning for this past trip, I could not get the dining package initially so I went ahead and made a dinner reservation for Tusker House Restaurant. Once dining package times were released, I cancelled my dinner reservation and made a dining package reservation online. I was able to get a package reservation for about the same time as my original dinner reservation.

    On the night of our visit, we arrived at the theater about 15 minutes prior to showtime and were able to find seats on the third row near the front. The seats were just perfect and the reserved section filled up quickly right after we were seated. We took a picture with a PhotoPass photographer while we were waiting for the show to begin. We were also lucky enough to have a little one behind us who felt compelled to comment on everything during the entire show. I was tickled to hear his perspective and wished that we all could see the wonder in the world the way he did.

    Deanne, I am sending pixie dust your way hoping you are able to book the dining package!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
