    As we are approaching our 60 day fastpass+ window, I am not sure which 2nd tier selections at AK to make. We are doing the Wild Africa Trek in AM, would it be redundant to do Kilamajaro Safaris in the afternoon?

    Hi, Franchesca!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is only a little over two months away; how exciting!  I bet you are counting down the days until you arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth.  It sounds like you have an amazing adventure to look forward to when you experience the Wild Africa Trek.

    Although your Wild Africa Trek tour will take you through some of the same areas guests visit on Kilimanjaro Safaris, you will most likely not see all there is to observe on a safari outing.  I have experienced Kilimanjaro Safaris numerous times, and due to the nature of the animals, it is always different.  Therefore, I don't think it would be redundant at all if you wish to hop aboard for this wild adventure.  Kilimanjaro Safaris would be a great use of a FastPass+ selection.

    If you enjoy thrill rides, I would also recommend making a FastPass+ selection for Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain.  This is another tier two FastPass+ experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and one of my family's favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World.  

    There are several great shows at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park that you can also select FastPass+ for, including my favorite show, Festival of the Lion King.  However, in my experience, you rarely need a FastPass+ to find a great seat at one of these shows.  I like to use my FastPass+ selections for ride attractions.  Did you know that once you have used the three FastPass+ selections you make in advance, you may continue to make additional FastPass+ selections one-at-a-time, subject to availability?  These additional selections can be made using your My Disney Experience mobile app or at one of the FastPass+ kiosks conveniently located throughout the park.

    I hope you have a wild time on your vacation!
