Rivers of Light Dessert Party Information

The Rivers of Light Dessert Party is a nighttime celebration in Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park featuring dessert treats and reserved seating for the Rivers of Light nighttime spectacular. This event is a special way to conclude an evening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Guests participating in this exclusive event will meet for desserts and drinks at the Asia viewing terrace across from Expedition Everest about one hour prior to the Rivers of Light showtime. There will be time to enjoy as many sweet treats as you can eat before the show. Desserts feature treats themed to elements from the Rivers of Light show. Just before the show begins, you will make your way to a reserved seating area to settle in for Rivers of Light. The event is over when the show concludes.
