    Will the safari ride at AK be included in EMH on Sunday, Sept 15, 2019? I keep seeing posts saying it is included but when I go where it shows hours for attraction it does not show it included for that day. If not EMH, when should I be in line to ride?

    Hi Tania! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love that you are planning to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom during Extra Magic Hours! Early in the morning the theme park seems so quiet and still as activity begins for the day. It is really peaceful!

    In my experience, Kilimanjaro Safaris operates during Extra Magic Hours and is a GREAT time to go! The animals are often more active during morning Extra Magic Hours and the weather nice. I double-checked the list of attractions included during Extra Magic Hours, and while none of them are guaranteed and are subject to availability, Kilimanjaro Safaris is still on the list! You can find the entire list at the link I included above for Extra Magic Hours (just scroll down on the page a bit). If you find that this attraction is not operating during Extra Magic Hours, you can still enjoy a few of the other attractions and head back to Kilimanjaro Safaris when the theme park opens for general admission at 8:00 A.M. and should still enjoy a short wait time.

    Since most Guests head to Pandora - The World of Avatar to get in those attractions first thing, you will probably find that the line for Kilimanjaro Safaris will be super fast! Once you have completed your trek through the savanna, I highly recommend heading to some of the other rides around the theme park while lines are still short. Then, when the theme park becomes a bit more crowded, head back to the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail for more animal sightings!

    Enjoy your vacation, Tania! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
