    We have a reservation at Tusker House at 9:15 am (no EMH). Can we get access to the park early? The kiddos want to stop at Wilderness Explorers before breakfast, can I check in alone at Tusker House or does the whole party need to be present? Thanks!

    Hello, Jen!

    It sounds like you have a day full of adventure planned at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! Since you have an advanced dining reservation at Tusker House Restaurant shortly after the scheduled park opening, you should be able to enter a few minutes early, so you have plenty of time to walk to the restaurant. Depending on the time, you may be able to swing by the Wilderness Explorer headquarters before breakfast to pick up a field guide. You can also pick up field guides at Wilderness Explorer stops in Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and Dinoland U.S.A. 

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!

    Happy Wilderness Exploring!
