    How do I schedule one of the tours in animal kingdom, like a behind the scenes or one closer to the animals? Thank you!

    Welcome back to planDIsney, Trish! 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is an amazing tour of faraway lands and all things nature.  Catching the animals in their natural habitats is an amazing sight to see, and it's even better when you get to go right up close and learn what it takes to care for these incredible creatures! 

    There are quite a few tours available at the moment and I'd love to help you find the perfect one so that you're able to schedule it before you leave for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! It sounds like you might be interested in Up Close with Rhinos or Caring for Giants, but you're certainly welcome to browse through all the Animal Kingdom tour offerings.  

    To book a special event or tour, choose the one you're most interested in and make sure you and your party are up for the adventure!  Some tours do have age requirements, so it's important to check the details before you book.  Once you've chosen your tour, simply click on the blue "check availability" button on the right-hand side of the page. That is also where you can see the price of each experience.  You'll be taken to another webpage where you will be prompted to enter the date range you're looking for and the number of guests in your party.  At the moment it looks like most tours are scheduling until the middle of March. Finally, you will be able to pick a time and check out right online!

    You may want to call (407)939-7529 if you're looking for a tour that isn't booking online or would like to speak to a Cast Member.  

    A friendly reminder that you and your party will need valid theme park tickets and Park Pass Reservations to Animal Kingdom in order to enter the park for your tour.  

    Trish, I hope you and your party have an awe-inspiring time with the animals! It's sure to be an experience of a lifetime.

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
