    Did not opt for hopper tks styin for 9 days, sugg on what to do in the eve,(not DT disney) on day we go to AK??

    Hi Marcella,

    One option is to make an Advance Dining Reservation at one of the restaurants at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Boma has a wonderful buffet. After dinner, visit the animal viewing areas around the resort, especially at Arusha Rock. If you stay past dark, there are opportunities to view the animals with night vision goggles!

    Or consider exploring the Magic Kingdom monorail resorts. Enjoy dinner at 'Ohana in the Polynesian Resort or Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary.

    A full evening can be spent at Fort Wilderness. Consider dinner at Hoop-Dee-Doo or Trail's End (yummy buffet), then stay for the campfire, Chip 'n Dale's Campfire Sing - Along.

    Also, do not underestimate the need for an evening of relaxation at your resort! Take in some resort activities or relax at the pool. It's a good night to rejuvenate.

    Have fun!
