    I've always gotten fastpasses for Kilimanjaro Safaris at AK for early morning when the animals are most active, but all of the morning passes are booked for our entire week. What other times are good? Evening? Will it be too dark?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elizabeth!

    I’m so glad you asked this question and can tell you from first hand experience that Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at night is an experience like no other.

    The "Nocturnal Encounters" present a completely different kind of discovery through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve. My experience was that many animals were alert, active and involved with their nocturnal habits and if I were to book a FastPass+ it would definitely be for the "Nocturnal Encounter", without question! It’s an experience that I will never forget and will always recommend.

    Have you heard about the new Tiffins restaurant and the Nomad Lounge inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park? Tiffins offers dining opportunities that will present you with an array of menus from around the world and the Nomad Lounge is the perfect watering hole for dining on small plates accompanied by selections of beer, mixed drinks and wine.
