    We have reservations at Tusker House at 720pm. Rivers of Light is scheduled for 730pm. Will we be able to see the show or should we have booked the Rivers of light dining package??

    Hello Chekena!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney’s Rivers of Light: We are One evening show is the perfect way to end a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. I was worried that my kids might not enjoy the show since there aren’t fireworks, but to my surprise, they loved it and were mesmerized by the projections on the water screens. My older sons who both play instruments truly enjoyed the musical score as well.

    Rivers of Light: We are One is shown on select nights. Unfortunately, while Tusker House Restaurant is an excellent dinner choice, it is located across the park from the show. You will not be able to see any of the show from the restaurant.  If you’d like to see the show, you have a few options. Your first option is to book an earlier dinner time with the Rivers of Light Dining Package. You would still get to enjoy dinner with Donald Duck and friends, and you would get a seat to the show. Your second option is to book an earlier dinner time on your own without the dining package, and either use a FastPass+ selection for the show or attempt to get a seat by waiting in the standby queue. Since it looks like you will be visiting the week of the Thanksgiving holiday, if you’d like to see the show, I recommend the dining package so you can relax and know that you have a reservation for both dinner and the show.

    I hope this helps as you begin to finalize your plans. If I can help with any additional questions before then, please let me know!
