    Doing the Grand Gathering Safari Celebration Dinner in Animal Kingdom. Do you suggest doing the Kilimanjaro Safari during the day too? Is it the exact same safari? I am concerned my kids (10&6) will be bored.

    Hi Jessica --

    You're going to have a great time on the Safari Celebration Dinner!  I had the opportunity to go a few years ago, and it was a wonderful experience.

    The Safari is the same trip that is offered to guests in the park, so if you want to skip it during your park visit to be able to experience a few extra attractions, that would be fine.  You won't be missing much.  However, the great thing about the Safari is that since your seeing live animals, the experience is different every time.If you did want to visit Kilimanjaro Safari during the day, I recommend doing it first thing in the morning.  Most people find that more animals are roaming around at this time of day than at any other.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
