    how can I book a Kilimanjaro safari for my family?

    Welcome to planDisney, Maria!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is coming up so soon!  Are you too excited to sleep??

    Kilimanjaro Safaris is definitely one of the premier attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  Guests board a safari vehicle with an informative guide to explore the savannas of Harambe Wildlife Reserve.  What I love about this attraction is that it is different each time I experience it, with certain animals sometimes being more active.  On my next visit, I am hoping to spy one of the new baby rhinos that have recently joined the "crash"!

    It is not necessary to pre-book this attraction; all Guests with theme park admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park may simply enter the standby queue.  Use the My Disney Experience mobile app to check wait times on the day of your visit.  This attraction is usually most popular midday, so for lower wait times try visiting first thing in the morning or late afternoon.  Keep in mind that at this time of year, Kilimanjaro Safaris closes earlier than the park closing time.  According to the calendar, this attraction will close at 5:00 pm this week.

    Kilimanjaro Safaris is also available as a Lightning Lane attraction with the purchase of Genie+Booking a Lightning Lane allows Guests to skip the standby line and enter through a separate entrance with a shorter wait.  Genie+ may be purchased in the My Disney Experience app on the date of your visit.  Guests may book their first Lightning Lane at 7:00 am for the next available time window.  My fellow panelist Jennifer recently gave another Guest detailed information about Genie+ and Lightning Lanes, which I thought you might find helpful.

    I hope that helps!  Please stop by planDisney again with any additional questions you may have.  Have a wonderful visit!
