Rivers of Light

At night, make your way over to Rivers of Light, where you’ll enjoy preferred seating for the second showing of this dazzling water and light show! As showtime approaches, you’ll be escorted to a reserved seating location overlooking the lake—offering exceptional views of the show and surrounding theater. You’ll be perfectly positioned to behold this dazzling light-and-water show that celebrates the magic of nature!

To check in for the show, please use the theater entrance closest to DinoLand U.S.A. The number of seats reserved for the Rivers of Light viewing is determined by the number of digital value cards purchased.
