    There in early March.What attractions/characters are available at the Saturday 8 am openings of AK?It says park is open from 8 am-8 pm, but most character greets normally start at 10, so wondering what to do at 8 and 9 or 10 W/o running around whole park.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel to ask your question. Although Disney's Animal Kingdom opens at 8am, the first character meet and greet starts at 9am. But no worries! You won't have to run around the whole park while waiting to meet your favorite characters. Here's a little game plan that might work for you:

    When you enter the Park, make your way to DinoLand U.S.A. There are so many attractions and activities located in that area. You'll be able to have a blast while getting ready to meet your favorite characters. Be sure to ride the TriceraTop Spin for me! 

    Around 8:40, cross the bridge to Discovery Island. At this time, you should be able to enter the queue for the Mickey and friends meet and greet at Adventurers Outpost. Once you have your postcard picture taken with Mickey and Minnie, head over to It's Tough to be a Bug! This fun live show can actually be scheduled using your FastPass+ service, so if you would like to guarantee your seating in the 9am hour, feel free to book it now. 

    After the show, you have the option of exploring the trails around the Tree of Life, and viewing the roaming animals. There's actually a great spot right behind the Tree of Life where you'll see all the action.Or, you can sign up your kids to be Wilderness Explorers. My son loved doing the challenges and exploring the park in a new way.

    After you sign up for Wilderness Explorers, it will be almost time to meet Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Pocahontas, or Russell and Dug. They all start their meet and greets at 10am, so the choice is yours!

    I hope this helps you, Jennifer. If you have any more questions before your vacation, please feel free to ask me at anytime. 

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
