    For the AK Rivers of Light show, is there a separate area for wheelchair users? If yes, do you still need to use a fast pass?

    Hi, Sandra!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is such an amazing place to visit at night!   Seeing the animals come to life during Tree of Life Awakenings is captivating, and visiting Pandora - The World of Avatar after dark is stunningly beautiful.  Another must-do experience is Rivers of Light.  Be sure to pick up a times guide on your way into the park or check the My Disney Experience app to verify the Rivers of Light show times for the day you are visiting.

    There is wheelchair accessible seating for Rivers of Light, and guests may remain in their wheelchair if need be.  Cast members will, of course, reserve wheelchair accessible seating for guests who need it, but there is really no way to be sure how many guests will require seating in these areas at each performance.  My advice to you is to either use a FastPass+ selection for Rivers of Light or arrive early if you choose to do stand-by seating.

    Another great option for you would be to book a Rivers of Light dining package.  The Rivers of Light dining package includes a meal and a non-alcoholic beverage from either Tuskar House or Tiffins restaurant and premium seating for Rivers of Light.  Reservations for the Rivers of Light dining package can be made once show times are confirmed, usually around three months in advance.

    Have a magical day!
