    Hello Moms! If reserving Rivers of Light dining package at Tusker House how long will we need to wait for the Rivers of Light show to start? my concern is the attention span of my 2 yr old - I saw one post advise 2 1/2 hrs before the show. Thanks!

    Hi Tara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have good news!  One of the benefits of booking a Dining Package for Rivers of Light: We are One, at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, is that you do not have to join the standby line to secure your seat too far in advance.  When you make your dining package reservation, your seats are already reserved in a special VIP viewing area (you will be given your seating voucher when you arrive at the restaurant).  For Rivers of Light: We are One, you have the choice of two restaurants - Tiffins Restaurant or Tusker House Restaurant, and you'll be expected to arrive at the Theater 15-35 minutes prior to showtime, using the theater entrance located closest to DinoLand U.S.A.  Here is a Guide Map so you can see where everything is located.  Your seat will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, but will be located in a reserved area, so you will be guaranteed a great view. The show itself lasts approximately 17 minutes.

    It's important to note that your dining will cost the same, whether or not you are including the show in your dining reservation, but please ensure you book it through the dining package here, not the regular online booking for each restaurant.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
