    Rivers of Light dining packages look interesting. At Tiffins, can we choose any app/entree/dessert combo or do package holders have to choose from specific options? How about the beverages? Only soda or are the specialty non-alcoholic ones an option?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Monica! 

    I'm happy to hear you are considering a Rivers of Light Dining Package - It really is the best way to see this visually stunning, evening event at Disney's Animal Kingdom. With the nighttime activities that are available, and Pandora - The World of Avatar now open, this enchanting theme park is a whole new place.

    I've dined twice at Tiffins and once at Tusker House with a Rivers of Light Dining Package, so I can say with experience, Tiffins is a fantastic choice. When dining at this unique location with a dining package, you do have the option of selecting your appetizer, entree, and dessert from the daily menu available to all guests; "specialty" beverages and cocktails are not included in the price of the dining package but may still be ordered and paid for out-of-pocket. 

    Another tip I have is to make sure you still arrive at the venue 30-45 minutes prior to show time so you are able to pick the best-of-the-best in seating. Rivers of Light Dining Package guests use the entrance near the Theater in the Wild (Finding Nemo - the Musical). PhotoPass Photographers also make their way around to capture photos of families with special Rivers of Light signage to commemorate the experience. 

    I hope this is helpful, Monica! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I'm "wild' about making sure our guests get the help they need.
