The Rivers of Light Dessert Party offers a dessert buffet paired with a reserved viewing area for Animal Kingdom’s nighttime spectacular, Rivers of Light!

The dessert buffet — hosted on the Rivers of Light Viewing Area terrace — offers an array of Animal Kingdom and Rivers of Light-themed desserts. Non-alcoholic specialty beverages are available, and alcoholic beverages are also part of the selections for of-age guests.

Prior to the start of the show, guests will be escorted to a reserved viewing area for Rivers of Light!
