    I have never been to Animal Kingdom and want to ride the Animal Safari. Whats the best time of day to see the most amount of animals?

    Hi Meghan! The Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite attractions -- you are going to love it! I've found that the best time to ride on the Safari is first thing in the morning. The animals will have just come out for the day and are most active then.   They tend to become less active during the middle of the day, especially when it's hot.  Late afternoon, just before park closing, can also be a good time for spotting lots of animals. 

    If you have time, ride the Kilimanjaro Safaris more than once during your visit to Animal Kingdom -- you'll be amazed how different it is each time you ride!

    Have a great time at Animal Kingdom!
