    When do you suggest Hubby & I make our reservations for a February 2018 Magical Vacation? What is it like in February? We have only been in November - never in February. We will want to stay at AKL. Thanks!

    Hi Jeanie!

    Hooray! I'm so happy to hear you're planning your next magical adventure "home!" Let's get started! First, you are able to book a room-only hotel reservation for a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel up to 499 days prior to your vacation by calling the reservation line listed on this Phone Directory. If you have your heart set on a certain room type at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, you may want to book now. Otherwise, vacation packages for next year should be released sometime this summer.

    Second, February is an absolutely beautiful time to visit! Usually my family visits in either September or February because they're a perfect combination of weather and crowds. Historically, the end of the month hosts the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, so be aware of more crowds during those dates.

    Last, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of our favorites. Make sure you take advantage of a few special gems. The first is the Wanyama Safari--a private safari tour and multi-course dining experience, or the Sense of Africa Breakfast--where you'll tour the backstage animal habitats for a few friendly animal encounters and enjoy breakfast at Boma - Flavors of Africa, and last, the Starlight Safari Tour--an evening safari adventure complete with night vision goggles! They are all amazing experiences and while they are now open to all Guests, they are perfect for those staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you plan the most magical vacation.

    Magical Wishes, Lauren
