    Hi I'm visiting in August 2017 and I'm wanting to book Rivers of Light Dining Package, the online system says there is no availability, when might these reservations become available, thanks

    Jambo, Shaun!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I'm super excited about Rivers of Light, the new nighttime offering at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. I've heard the show is beautiful and amazing, and can't wait to see it myself next week!

    While the Rivers of Light Dining Package is only currently available through June, I'm hopeful they will extend the dates into the fall. We're not privy to any information about when future dates may open up, but I encourage you to keep an eye on the Rivers of Light Dining Package page for any openings in August. Other great sources of the most up-to-date Walt Disney World Resort theme park information are the Disney Parks Blog or Walt Disney World on Twitter.

    What you may want to do is go ahead and make a dining reservation for either Tusker House Restaurant or Tiffin's for the day you're planning to visit Animal Kingdom. Once your FastPass+ reservation window opens, you can then make a FP+ reservation for Rivers of Light on that evening. If Rivers of Light dining packages become available, you can always secure one at that time, and cancel your prior reservations. This exact scenario happened to our group for our trip next week - I made sure to secure the dining package reservation first, then simply canceled the other!

    I hope this helps with your planning, and you're able to enjoy Rivers of Light during your August vacation. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
