    Hello! I am planning a trip with a large group of Girl Scouts and parents (around 20) and we'd like to do the Up Close with Rhinos Tour in Animal Kingdom. How many people are allowed on each tour? We'd really love to be able to be together!

    Hi, Taryn!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're considering the Up Close with Rhinos tour at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park for your Girl Scouts group!  I had the opportunity to do the Up Close with Rhinos tour during my planDisney training, and it was an incredible experience.  I was so impressed by how knowledgeable the Cast Members were about the animals in their care.  It was fascinating to learn about the white rhinoceros.  During our tour, we had the opportunity to meet Helen, one of the white rhinos who calls Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park her home.  Helen was kind enough to let my fellow panelists and me pet her.   Petting a rhino was an experience I never expected I would have and definitely one I won't soon forget!

    The Up Close with Rhinos tour typically takes place once a day and can only accommodate a small number of people.  The maximum number of Guests per tour is not explicitly stated on the Up Close with Rhinos tour webpage.  However, if you click on "Check Availability," the maximum number of Guests it will let you select for booking is 13.  Since your group will be a bit larger than this, I recommend reaching out to the Guest Experience Team to see if they will be able to accommodate your entire group in one tour.  If you click on the Up Close with Rhinos tour link in the paragraph above, you'll find the Guest Experience Team phone number listed in the "Know Before You Go" information.  

    If you're ever looking for other unique Walt Disney World Resort experiences for your Girl Scouts, be sure to explore the Enchanting Extras Collection for a wide array of ideas.  I recently attended a performance of Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney, and it was absolutely breathtaking.  I think it would be perfect for a group like yours.

    If we can help you with any other questions in the future, please visit planDisney again.  Have a magical day!
