    How long does the kilamanjaro safari take Ak opens for extra magic hours at 7:00 and we have reservations at Tusker House at 8:15 . Do we have time to do the safari before breakfast?

    Hello and welcome to the Moms Panel!

    The Kilimanjaro Safaris is approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length.  Now you will need to check your "Times Guide" as you enter into Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Although the park opens at 7:00 a.m. for Disney's Extra Magic Hours, Kilimanjaro Safaris may or may not be open at that time.  If it is open, I would suggest heading on over there once the gates open before the crowds arrive.  Many of the guests like to catch the thrill rides first during EMH before the gates open to the rest of the public.  Your party will be moving away from the guests rushing to catch Expedition Everest.  Again, if Kilimanjaro Safaris is open, you will have enough time to enjoy the ride and then trek on over to your dining reservation.

    Have a MAGICAL day!
