    Hi planDisney, Can you tell me if I can personally add a dining package & Disney Animal Kingdom extra Up Close with Rhinos to my 18 year old's senior trip to WDW in April? She will be traveling with her school (booked through the school package).

    Hiya Carla - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love helping Guests just like you navigate your planning journey!

    Carla, when it comes to the Disney Dining Plan portion of your question, I recommend reaching out to your planning contact at the school. These school trips are amazing but are often customized with each individual school's travel needs in mind. Dining options are typically offered, and if your group included some of these options, the trip may be ineligible for an additional Disney Dining Plan.

    When it comes to the Up Close with Rhinos tour at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you should have no trouble booking that through a My Disney Experience account, either via the app or online. Like most dining reservations and other Enchanting Extras, your booking window for this experience will open 60 days in advance, and I recommend booking as soon as possible - these are popular experiences! Of course, you'll likely also want to check in with the school's planning contact to ensure the experience can fit in with other plans. For example, some school groups have Theme Park Tickets assigned to certain Theme Parks on certain days, and valid admission to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is required to experience Up Close with Rhinos.

    I hope this information is helpful as you try to add some extra pixie dust to this special trip!
