    We are planning to do the Starlight Safari when we stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge in November hopefully on Tues. November 7 if possible. Is the Safari available every night or certain nights of the week and two times per night? Thank you for you help!

    Get your safari gear ready, Kendall! You are going to love the Starlight Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! It is one of the coolest nighttime experiences to enjoy at the Walt Disney World Resort! The animals along the “savanna” are so active at nighttime!

    The Starlight Safari reservation calendar is currently available through late October. The safari adventure is scheduled to run two times per night – typically 8:30 and 10:00. While the November calendar is not yet available, I expect to see that same (or a similar) schedule continue through the fall.

    Kendall, reservations for the Starlight Safari will open 60-days prior to the date you want to book. So, for your November 7, 2023 date, you should be able to book your reservation on Friday, September 8, 2023.

    I strongly (like Hercules, strongly) recommend that you book your reservation as early as possible on September 8, 2023. The Starlight Safari is incredibly popular and gets reserved quickly! You can typically begin booking those 60-day advance reservations at 6:00 AM (or a few minutes earlier)!

    Have a great time on your safari adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    Happy Planning!
