    Traveling to Disney on November 10th. Disney has still not released Rivers of Lights dining package, we are at 80 day prior to travel. Fast Pass Plus opens 9/11 and would like to have our lunch booked before planning fast passes. wondering when it opens

    Hi Angie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine the anticipation in your household as you prepare to make those Fast Pass+ selections!

    Unfortunately, I have very little light to shed on this one. I called to check again with a cast member and the Rivers of Light dining packages have not been released for November yet. I understand your dilemma. On our most recent trip, we booked the Rivers of Light dining package with Tusker House restaurant and then did not have to use one of our Fast Pass+ selections to see the show. The reserved seating area with the dining package was lovely. We arrived about 15 minutes before show time (squeezed in a fourth Fast Pass+ between dinner and the show) and still were able to get great seats in the reserved section. 

    The show is gorgeous. I do hope you get to see it. The floating flowers, the lighting, the water - it all comes together to tell a beautiful story of life. My girls and I found the PhotoPass photographer soon after we sat down and took a quick picture before the show started. 

    Angie, I highly recommend the dining package for this show. Either Tiffins or Tusker House are great restaurants. We chose Tusker House because we wanted to see Donald and Daisy Duck in their finest safari attire and we wanted the buffet so that we could try an array of foods. When I made dining reservations for our last trip, the dining packages were not released at the time I started making reservations so I made a dining reservation at Tusker House then when the dining packages were released, I changed my reservation.

    I am sending pixie dust your way hoping those dining packages are released soon!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
