    We’re staying at AKL in October 2020 and we’re interested in the safari. We have a 2 year old, so does the resort have a safari run during the day, can our 2 year old go on the safari, and how much is it?

    Jambo, Kcee! Thanks for your question and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! First off, congratulations on your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World!

    My wife and I recently stayed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge with our then 6-month-old daughter and she had a blast. There is so much to see and do inside and outside of the resort including both the Sense of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Starlight Safari at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. While both of these Special Events and Tours do have an age requirement, you can still get your little one up and close to see the animals at the Savannah Overlook or the Arusha Rock Savannah Overlook at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    As an insider’s tip, if you’re planning to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park during your vacation, Kilimanjaro Safaris does not have an age or height requirement. This way you’ll get to see the animals at both locations!

    If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    Have a magical day!
