    How far in advance are FOLK Tier 1 tickets offered? My girls, 5 & 8, loved it last year and I want to secure tickets for our next trip! They loved the private safari- were asking questions & chatting with our guide the whole time! It was great!

    Hi Christine,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you are planning to visit Walt Disney World Resort again this year!

    Festival of the Lion King is my favorite show on property and a "must do" for my family when visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme ParkThe Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package – Tier I is a great way to experience the festive show with VIP seating, a 3-course meal at Tiffins Restaurant and an exclusive safari tour through the African outback. I'm "wild" about all 3 experiences that are included, so I can certainly understand wanting to secure this package again for your daughters.

    Although Guests can book dining reservations for most Table-Service restaurants 180 days in advance, special dining packages and dining events often release a little later due to the entertainment schedules. I just called Disney Dining to verify my information for you. Unfortunately, we do not currently know when additional dates beyond September 28th will be released for this dining package. I would recommend that you periodically check the calendar over the next few weeks to see if your specific dates of travel become available. 

    I hope this information is helpful. Keep those questions coming, Christine. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!
