    We booked "A Path Less Traveled" tour starting at 10:30. Is there a break for lunch and if so, about what time, for how long, and where in the park will we be so we can book ADR.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alison! Off-the-beaten-path tours and events have become some of my favorite things to do while visiting Walt Disney World Resort! My mom and I experienced the Wild Africa Trek and the Behind the Seeds Tour in January and we loved every minute!

    As you may already know, the “A Path Less Traveled” Tour is a celebration of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s 20th birthday and offers a myriad of wild activities, like a backstage visit to Rafiki's Planet Watch, an unforgettable elephant encounter and a VIP viewing of Rivers of Light among other itinerary items. The tour can last 8-12 hours over the course of the day with included snack breaks as well as a lunch break on your own. I’ve spoken to a Cast Member in the Events and Tours department, and they told me since the activity list and times for the tour are constantly in flux, you will be guaranteed a lunch break, but it is unknown when and where that will be. Both they and I recommend you save your Table Service reservation for another day and instead, opt for a Quick Service location in the park since they are also unsure of your location at lunchtime. I would hate for you to make a Table Service reservation and end up paying the late cancellation fee if you aren’t able to make it in time. If you are a Disney Dining Plan user, remember you can “step down” your table service credit into a Quick Service Credit. Just ask for assistance from your Quick Service location Cast Member and you’ll be set.

    I hope you have an exceptional time on your Path Tour, and if I can help you with another day of your vacation, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
