    I want to book a behind the scenes/safari tour at Walt Disney Animal Kingdom. For October, they're showing tour times. For February "no tours available". How far in advance do they release those times for booking?

    Hello Erica,

    A behind the scenes tour is a delightful choice. I am glad to hear that you are a considering one. They are a fun way of seeing the theme parks from a unique perspective.  

    Some of the tours operate seasonally or on a varied schedule, while others occur on a pretty regular schedule. Often the schedules online appear about 30-60 days in advance. You could always call (407) WDW-TOUR (939-8687) and inquire. I have personally booked tours about 60 days in advance in the past. So, even though the site is not updated, the cast member may have more information. The Backstage Tales Tour is showing February dates online, so this could also be one you consider. 

    Have a wild time on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!
