Giraffe at Kilimanjaro Safari; Animal Kingdom

    Hope Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    How does the second selection work with Genie+ when park hopping? Would it be available two hours from the time the earliest park opens? For example, if Animal Kingdom opens at 8, but the other parks open at 9, can you make the second selection at 10?

    Hey, there! Hi, there, Hope! I am so glad to see you here at planDisney where you are as welcome as can be.

    With Genie+, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection as early as 7 am. With an early morning selection, you are eligible to make a second selection 2 hours after the park in which you are selecting a Lightning Lane opens or after you have used the Lightning Lane entry you selected.

    If you are hoping to spot a giraffe or laugh with a hyena and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park opens at 8 am, you can select Kilimanjaro Safaris as your second choice as early as 10 am. If you are headed to the wildest ride in the wilderness and Magic Kingdom Park opens at 9 am, you can pick your time to mosey over to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as early as 11 am.

    Did you know with Genie+, you also get access to digital downloads from attractions and special Disney PhotoPass lenses for fun souvenirs from your day in the magic. Playing with the lenses is an entertaining attraction in itself. 

    With your trip this fall, be sure to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog's Halloween page for a shriek peek at the seasonal tricks and treats at Walt Disney World Resort. I love the pumpkin and other autumnal decorations, and my kids love the tasty snacks. We always stop at the Main Street Confectionery to see what they have baked up (and covered in chocolate) to tempt us.

    I hope you have a wonderful time at the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any other questions, we're happy to help at planDisney.

    Thinking of the Happiest Things!
