    8:05AM ADR at Tusker House on our AK day. Park opens for EMH at 7am. We are staying at CBR. What is our best strategy?

    Hi Janice,

    What a great way to start your Animal Kingdom day, I absolutely love Donald's Safari Breakfast! If the park opens for Extra Magic Hours at 7am and you want to get there at that time, I would head straight back to the Kilimanjaro Safari. The animals tend to be most active in the morning. The Tusker House is located in the back corner of the park near the Safari, so after you get off the ride, if there is still a bit of time before your breakfast, you could stroll down the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. You'll see hippo, gorilla and more, it's really a nice walk. This is located right next to the Kilimanjaro Safari and you wouldn't wander too far away from the restaurant to get there.

    On Extra Magic Hours mornings, buses begin running an hour prior to to park opening. Since the buses come approximately every 20 minutes or so and you never know if you just missed one, or if one is coming around the bend, I always recommend that you arrive at the bus stops an hour prior to when you want to be somewhere.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
