    Hello! We plan to visit AK on Sept 17 of our trip. I have 1:35 reservations at Tusker House. Not sure if i should make a later reservation? I want to do the safari in the morning and im not sure if i have picked a bad character meal time?

    Hi Nikki!

    It all depends on when you are most interested in eating at Tusker House. Since Tusker House and the entrance to the Kilimanjaro Safari are next door to each other, our family will normally eat at Tusker House either right before or right after doing the Kilimanjaro Safari. You made a wise choice in trying to do the Safari in the morning, as this is the best time to see the most animals (the earlier in the morning the better).

    The character meals at Tusker House are only for breakfast and lunch. So if you decide to change your reservation to a later time, you want to ensure it's not too late to capture the character meal (dinner has no characters). 

    However, If you like to split the park up (say, do Africa all at once), then you may consider actually changing your Tusker House reservation to an earlier time to closely coincide with the Kilimanjaro experience. We generally do Donald's Dining Safari Breakfast right at opening, then make a bee line to the Safari afterwards.

    Good Luck! And hope you have a fun, wild adventure there! :-)
