    I'm going to Disney in April and I would like to make a dining reseration at Donald's Safari inside of Animal Kingdom. Will I be allowed to make a reservation before the park opens if I am not staying at a Disney property?

    Hi Leslie,

    Tusker House is a really fun character breakfast featuring Donald and friends dressed for safari. There are abundant food options, and it's a great way to start your day at Animal Kingdom.

    Yes, I believe you will be able to make early reservations, even if you aren't staying on property. Even if you visit during a day when there are Extra Magic Hours, you most likely won't be done eating until it's nearly time for the park to open anyway. Reservations can be made 180 days in advance. Early spots fill up quickly, so you'll want to make them right away.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
