    Can you please let us know what time Kilimanjaro Safaris will close in May 2020? We're hoping to make a 7:30 FastPass+ reservation, but currently the website says it will close at 7:00 (maybe b/c it gets dark earlier in the winter?). Thanks!

    Jambo, Amy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I hope you are ready to have a roaring good time! Kilimanjaro Safaris is one of my absolute favorite rides at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Where else can you be transported to an African Wildlife Reserve with more than 34 unique species of African Wildlife, without a 18 hour flight? 

    Nighttime on the savannah is a totally unique experience, giving you a chance to catch a glimpse of some rare nocturnal animals and experience some breathtaking views of the savannah, thanks to some strategic lighting. In fact, a Sunset Safari is the only place at Disney's Animal Kingdom to see African wild dogs and hyenas!

    Amy, I see that during the month of May, the closing time for Kilimanjaro Safaris is between 8:00 pm an 8:30 pm, so you should be able to grab a FastPass+ that would work for your 7:30 pm target time. 

    I hope that this helped, Amy. Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your wild adventure!
