    Is the seating area different for ROL Fastpasses vs ROL dining packages or is it the same area/seats? We’re 17 days away and trying to figure out last minute details!! Thanks!!

    Welcome back, Brandy!

    My family and I just returned home from the most wonderful week at Walt Disney World last week and are still reveling in all of the magical memories we made! I'm so excited for your family that you're about to head off on this magical adventure!

    We loved experiencing Rivers of Light at Animal Kingdom Park for the very first time last week, and now count it as our favorite nighttime experience of all! The way that the light is projected onto the water and the beautiful scenery around the whole area is simply spectacular and something that is so exciting to experience! If you already have FastPass+ reservations for River of Light, or if you have booked a Rivers of Light Dining Package, you're all set! The FastPass+ seating is different than the Dining Package seating, but both are in the middle of all the action, so you can't go wrong either way. We opted for the FastPass+ for this experience and arrived about 35 minutes early and had a wonderful spot to see the show. Even if you simply arrive and standby for the show, you'll be fine, but do arrive early as it is a popular event!

    Don't miss walking through Pandora after Rivers of Light is over, as you simply can't miss that area at night. A stroll through Avatar's bioluminescent forest after dark is something you must see! It's amazing that even the ground glows at night there!

    Have a great vacation, Brandy!
