    We are trying to make park plans and running into conflict. No schedule for the Rivers of Light Dining Package or show time in December 2017. We can make dining reservations now, but not for the Dining / show package..Why?

    Hi Frank,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am sorry to hear that you are having a problem booking the Rivers of Light Dining Package.

    As of now, there is no dining package schedule released for December and, unfortunately, I was unable to obtain any additional information when I called to speak with a cast member in dining. 

    I can say, however, that it is worth doing the dining package if dates are released. My family just did the dining package at Tusker House Restaurant and it was lovely. The dinner buffet was terrific and the characters were just great with our girls. We also decided to squeeze in a fourth Fast Pass+ selection in between dinner and the show. We were in our seats by 9:00 p.m. for the 9:15 p.m. show. Although I was worried, there were still great seats in the reserved section when we arrived. But given the date of your visit, the park may be more crowded, so you may want to arrive a little earlier.

    There is usually a PhotoPass photographer roaming in the theater so we always take a photo before the show. You just have to flag down the photographer and she or he will gladly come take your photo. I love it because the photographer has a decorative sign that has the name of the show on it so it helps us remember where that photo was taken.

    Frank, I do hope you enjoy the show. If you have not seen it yet, you are in for a treat. The water, lights and storytelling are beautifully orchestrated. Do take some time to explore Pandora - The World of Avatar. My new favorite ride is Avatar Flight of Passage. It really feels as if you are flying through the valley of Mo'ara on the back of a banshee!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
