    Are behind the scenes tours at Animal Kingdom currently open? If so what are the options?

    Hi Jared,

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    Like you, my family loves the behind the scenes tours at Disney's Animal Kingdom! We loved Caring for Giants and Up Close with Rhinos. The animals were simply stunning and the Cast Members who talked with us on those experiences shared so many adorable stories. Dine with an Animal Specialist at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge was also a favorite of ours. Dining in Sanaa with phenomenal food while watching the animals just outside of the window and listening to an animal specialist share expertise was truly a highlight. 

    Unfortunately, at this time, these experiences are unavailable. You could book a private VIP Tour. Although these tours are not quite the same as the behind the scenes tours I mentioned, the guides are knowledgeable and can provide you with a tailored experience. Also take a look at other Enchanting Extras that might be available during your visit. If you are bringing little ones with you, they might adore a pony ride at Tri-Circle-D Ranch

    Jared, do check the operational updates and updates to theme park experiences since experience availability could change by the time of your visit. Looking at your arrival date, I hope you made some advanced dining reservations. On our last visit, those were a life saver! I loved being able to use Mobile Dine Check-in and request a window table at select restaurants! 

    Magic and memories,
