    Will there be a rivers of light dining package for this october, 2017?

    Hi Fernanda!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question! I'm happy to hear you're making plans to enjoy Disney's Animal Kingdom Park's newest nighttime spectacular, Rivers of Light. It's a beautiful show that uses water, music and light to showcase the magic and splendor of nature and all living things. It's amazing!

    At this time, the Rivers of Light Dining Package is only accepting reservations through September, but I'm hopeful they'll extend the dates further into the fall. I also have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned for October, and I'm hoping to reserve this dining package as well!  We don't have any information about when future dates may open up, but I encourage you to keep an eye on the Rivers of Light Dining Package page for any openings in October. Other great sources of the most up-to-date Walt Disney World Resort theme park information are the Disney Parks Blog or Walt Disney World on Twitter.

    What you may want to do is go ahead and make a dining reservation for either Tusker House Restaurant or Tiffin's for the day you're planning to visit Animal Kingdom. Once your FastPass+ reservation window opens, you can then make a FP+ reservation for Rivers of Light on that evening. If Rivers of Light dining packages become available, you can always secure one at that time, and cancel your prior reservations. This exact scenario happened to our group in February - I made sure to secure the dining package reservation first, then simply canceled the other!

    I hope this helps with your planning. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
