New dining starting July 31, 2018 in Animal Kingdom
The first one is a family style dinner at Pizzafari that still counts as a QS credit. The second is a Rivers of Light dessert party. Both are talked about at DisneyParksBlog but for some reason I can't open the site now. I also read about it at WDWmagic, WDWNT and Kenny the Pirate.
We're really interested in the Pizzafari dinner option so I'm currently on hold to see if I can book it. I can't do it with either device or my PC so that left calling. We'll give up our Tusker House dinner for it but that's okay with us.
The dessert party we'll pass on. It's still $80 like all the other ones and we haven't had the best experience with this theater so I'm not going to spend that kind of money and still have a bad experience.

I just went and read about the new offerings, I hope you are able to get a reservation, sounds like a good value.
I didn't even think to come back and let everyone know - as soon as I was off the phone, Lenny had dinner done (yes, today is one of those rare days he had the night off when I did too).
I was on the phone about half an hour and I got the reservation! I canceled dinner at TH for this but we're good with that. We're eating breakfast at TH as well so we really don't need to go there for dinner too. It's just what we did two years ago and Lenny liked it and wanted to repeat it. He likes Italian though so he wants to give this a try. It's less money (we can use our credits actually so it won't cost us anything) and it should be less time too so it should free up some time to do something else, even if it's just sit and people watch waiting for ROL.
I like the Pizzafari QS option, too. As for the dessert party, I think it would be unnecessary for ROL. From my experience, you can see that show from lots of places within that theater, and we found the show itself pretty underwhelming. It isn’t that we didn’t like it. It’s just that we weren’t bowled over, especially considering all the hype and delays before they got it up and running.
