    I love the Animal Kingdom and the tigers at the Maharajah Jungle Trek, but have never seen them awake! What is the best time of day to go to see the tigers awake?

    Hi, Kimberly!  On a recent visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom, my daughter asked this very same question!  Unlike Moms, who seem to be busy 20 hours of the day, did you know that most tigers spend up to 20 hours each day SLEEPING???  Can you imagine that kind of life of leisure?  The best time to catch them awake is as early in the day as you can possibly get there.  There are no guarantees with those sleepy tigers, but it is best to try to catch them before the day gets too hot.
