This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

As rumored here a few weeks ago, Disney has now formally announced the new Rivers of Light Dessert Party.

 

With this new dining experience, you can add a sweet ending to your day by enjoying a beautiful buffet of Disney’s Animal Kingdom-themed desserts, snacks, and drinks before enjoying VIP views of “Rivers of Light.” You’ll start by checking in 60 minutes prior to the main show (8:15 p.m. for a 9:15 p.m. show) at the Rivers of Light Asia Viewing Area Terrace located across from Expedition Everest. Here you’ll enjoy house-made desserts, snacks, specialty alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, iced tea, lemonade, and water. When the show is about to start, head down to the VIP Seating Area, where you’ll enjoy exceptional views of Rivers of Light.

This new dining experience will take place on select nights starting on Monday, August 11th, 2018. Starting today you can make reservations by calling 407 WDW-DINE (407 939-3463). Price is $79 for adults and $47 for children (tax inclusive) and must be paid for in full at the time of booking. Guests must be at least 21 years of age or older and able to present a valid form of ID to consume alcoholic beverages.

  • Nothing would delight me more than if this new event were to fail. I’m surprised ‘Rivers of Light’ is still a thing. Seen it once. Never again. What a waste of time.

    • Because you personally didn’t enjoy something, you want everything related to it to fail? That seems incredibly bitter and petty. What about a dessert party can possibly upset you so much that you can’t even fathom someone enjoying it, and would find such intense pleasure in the time, effort, energy, and excitement of all those who worked on this event being wasted, and them experiencing disappointment?

  • I respectfully disagree.
    ROL was a major highlight on our last Disney World vacation.

    I’ll take a pass on the desert party though.
