    We are headed to Disney World on the 24th, we plan on going to Animal Kingdom on the day they have morning extra magic hours, is Kilimanjaro Safari open during morning extra magic hours?

    Hi Shanna,

    You must be so excited that your Walt Disney World vacation is just days away! I'm happy to hear that you are planning to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours during your visit. It's one of the terrific benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World resort.

    Kilimanjaro Safaris does offer excursions to the Harambe Wildlife Reserve during morning Extra Magic Hours, as long as conditions permit. That's my favorite time of day to explore the reserve. I have a vivid memory of a safari on a crisp January morning several years ago when one of the lions treated us to a series of morning roars. The wildlife always seems more active early in the day.

    We've found the gorillas, especially the young ones, on the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail also may be more frisky in the cooler morning air. 

    You can see the list of all Extra Magic Hours attractions at each of the parks here, Shanna, if that helps you plan the rest of your visit.

    Thanks for your question. Enjoy every extra moment!
