    Backlot tours of animal kingdom

    Hi Mary! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is one of my favorite places to be.  With its immersive attractions and lands like Pandora - The World of Avatar and It's Tough to be a Bug! it's easy to feel transported to an entirely different world when you're within the boundaries of this incredible Park.  No matter how many "thrill" rides are added to this Park, my family and I always head straight for Kilimanjaro Safaris so we can soak up the Savanna sunrise with the beautiful animals. 

    If you're interested in seeing even more of the animals than you can get in Affection Section, Feathered Friends in Flight! and Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail, checking out some of the unique tours in the Enchanting Extras Collection might be a way to add just enough pixie dust to your vacation to make it even better than the last. 

    Many of these tours can be booked right online through the Walt Disney World Resort website.  You'll find offerings such as the private Savor the Savanna tour, which makes you feel like a VIP as you journey on your own personal safari, or the budget-friendly, but still unforgettable Caring For Giants tour where you can see the elephant herd up close!  Some tours are great for different age groups, so make sure to check them all out before you decide!

    If you're really out for adventure, you might want to look into the Wild Africa Trek.  This tour is not for the faint of heart and requires you to cross rope bridges and walk off-the-beaten-path trails to encounter amazing wildlife.  You'll even be rewarded with a gourmet spread of snacks after you complete your tour!  This is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience if you're hoping to make this a once-in-a-lifetime trip!

    Adventure is out there!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
