    We have booked Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House in AK on 5/29 at 8:20 AM and are staying at Pop Century. What is the best way to insure we get to AK Tusker House on time?

    Hi, Mendi! Looks like Animal Kingdom opens at 9:00 a.m. on Sun., May 29. This means that you'll get into the park before it opens to other guests. The animals will still be there though. So, I guess you could say you'd feel right at home. Zing!

    The coolest thing about an early morning dining reservation in one of the parks is being able to take pictures with nobody else in them. On your way to Tusker House, you'll have photo ops in front of the Tree of Life and on a bridge with Everest as your backdrop. You'll have no problem finding a cast member to take your picture for you.

    To get to Animal Kingdom this early in the morning, grab a taxi at Pop Century by 7:30 a.m.

    After you're finished dining with Donald & Co. at Tusker House (which is our family's favorite character breakfast,) head over to Kilimanjaro Safaris next door. The wait should be minimal that early in the morning.
