    Can you do Rivers of Light and walk though Pandora to see it lit up in the same night? Or do you have to do them separate nights?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anna!

    My family and I just returned from a magical week at the Walt Disney World Resort and loved experiencing Rivers of Light at Animal Kingdom Park for the very first time! It is now our very favorite nighttime show of all. I just can't wait for you to experience it. We were in awe of the seamless technology that lit up the sky, floats, and water during this show. My favorite part was how the animals that were projected onto the water seemed to jump from one float to another. It was so spectacular and something you absolutely must see!

    I'm happy to let you know that yes, you can experience both Rivers of Light and the gorgeous bioluminescent forest of Pandora after the show as well. We left Rivers of Light without a rush and were able to walk through the Pandora area and really enjoy the atmosphere that is so unique there at night. It's simply breathtaking! Even the ground lights up at night. So, don't miss a leisurely stroll through there on your way out of the park after seeing Rivers of Light, Anna. It's simply amazing and so very different at night than during the day!

    Have a magical trip!
