    Good morning!! (I cannot find a definite answer online) I'm trying to plan our evening at Animal Kingdom, March 24 trip; is the Nighttime/after dark Kilimanjaro Safari still running? The Night Safari at AKL is not in our budget. Thanks again!!

    Jambo, Andrea! Welcome back to planDisney. We're happy you're here! 

    Spring is my favorite season to enjoy magical vacations and I'm absolutely thrilled to hear you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in March! Much like you, I love everything that Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park has to offer. Give me all the lush savannas, roaming wildlife, and delicious treats! With that being said, I'm a huge fan of Kilimanjaro Safaris and would love to help you have the best experience possible.

    Andrea, you're exactly right – the Starlight Safari is an after-dark safari ride hosted at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! This experience allows Guests to embark on a truly one-of-a-kind adventure to observe the free-roaming animals on the savanna. However, it sounds like you're looking for more of a nighttime experience on Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, itself! At the time of this writing, I'm not aware of any opportunities like this at the park. In the past, they've held Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, though there doesn't appear to be availability currently. My best tip would be to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as your trip gets closer so you can stay up-to-date on everything being offered at that time! 

    Until then, take a little time to check out the Enchanting Extras that you can book for your upcoming vacation! My husband and our friends reserved a Capture Your Moment photo session at Magic Kingdom Park and it ended up being one of our favorite memories from the whole trip. With a spirit of adventure, you may also like Caring for Giants or Up Close with Rhinos (which we also did and LOVED!). And of course, if you have any other questions, please write to us again. We're happy to help!

    You've got a friend in me,
