    What does reserving a Fast Pass for the Animal Kingdom Rivers of Light actually get you. Are there reserved seats?

    Hi Sue!

    Rivers of Light is such an incredibly unique nighttime experience and a great way to end a magical day at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Because of its popularity, the general admission seats available for the show do fill up early, so you may have to arrive long before the show begins to get a really good seat.  The last time my husband and I saw Rivers of Light, we got in line to be seated at least an hour and a half before the show.  We got pretty good seats, but we still had to wait about an hour in our seats for the show to start.

    Luckily, with FastPass+, you don't have to get to the show nearly as early as you would without it!  There is separate seating that is reserved for guests who have chosen Rivers of Light as one of their FastPass+ selections.  I still recommend getting to the show a little early, even with FastPass+, to make sure that you get a good seat in that section!  You may also want to check out the Rivers of Light Dining Package, which includes a scrumptious meal and premium seating for the show!

    While you are visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom, make sure to check out Pandora - The World of Avatar at night.  If you think it is beautiful during the day, you won't want to miss it at night when all of the bioluminescent flowers and plants begin glowing!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
