    Is Rivers of Light being discontinued after October? I am visiting in January and was looking to make a Rivers of Light dining reservation. There are no options for this after October. Thanks!

    Hello Barrie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Dining Locations at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park(especially those included in the Rivers of Light Dining Packages) are truly wonderful experiences. Matching wonderful dining with the Rivers of Light Nighttime Spectacular is a recipe for Endless Magic.

    As you have stated in your inquiry, the Rivers of Light Dining Packages are only booking Advanced Dining Reservations up until October 31st, 2017. Nothing(as of yet) has been officially released as to whether The Rivers of Light Dining Package will continue beyond that date. Oftentimes Advanced Dining Reservations for Dining Packages are released beyond the 180-day window to book dining after decisions are made as to whether the Dining Package will continue.

    Continue to check the Rivers of Light Dining Package site for Advanced Dining Reservations as they may be released at any time and without notice.

    If not, I recommend that you book Advanced Dining Reservations for Tiffins to enjoy a fabulous dinner before using a FastPass+ selection for Rivers of Light Nighttime Spectacular.  You could always alter your plans if the Dining Package becomes available.

    Bon Appétit!
