This Month at Disney World – August 2018

There are always new and exciting things happening at Disney World. Here are some things we are looking forward to this month.

Rivers of Light Dessert Party (starting August 6th)

In what seems like the never-ending introduction of add ons, Rivers of Light, the night show at Animal Kingdom is getting it’s own dessert party.

Similar to the fireworks dessert parties at the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, you’ll get to view Rivers of Light from a reserved area and an hour at a dessert (and app) buffet plus beverages. For a cost of course.

This new party will be nightly starting August 6th. It will cost $79 for adults and $47 for children, in addition to park admission. Tickets available here.

Mickey and I were fortunate enough to get to take a last minute Disney trip to get in one last ride before it’s doors closed forever. Into its place we will get Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Personally I’m sad a a bit disappointed the Great Movie Ride was closed, but I am excited for this new Mickey Mouse ride.
