    What time can I book the Up Close with Rhinos experience. It looks like 60 days in advance, but what time does booking open?

    Hey there, Sarah! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    I absolutely LOVE the Enchanting Extras Collection at Walt Disney World Resort, and I am SO excited that you have discovered it! Adding one (or more!) of these amazing experiences to our vacations at The Most Magical Place on Earth always seems to make an already memorable and magical time even more unforgettable. Next month, my family and I will be enjoying the relaxation of a private Beachcomber Shack while we splash around Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, premium food, drinks and seating for Harmonious at the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package, and the Caring for Giants tour at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and we seriously cannot wait. As big animal lovers, Up Close with Rhinos is definitely on the top of our must-do list, and I'm thrilled to help you plan such an unforgettable experience to add extra pixie dust to your magical summer adventure!

    Since you can book Up Close with Rhinos online, your online booking window opens at 6:00 a.m. EST 60 days before your arrival. Since this is a popular experience, I recommend grabbing a cup of coffee and being online, ready to refresh the webpage and begin your search at 5:45 a.m. EST. Happy booking, my friend!

    Since the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom during your visit, I suggest planning multiple visits to the Fest to enjoy all there is to do, see and taste. As a fellow animal lover, make sure you don't miss the beautiful and oh-so-sweet butterfly garden! I also recommend purchasing Spike's Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt when you first arrive at your first visit to the Festival. That way, you can take your time completing it as you explore every World Showcase Pavilion and taste your way around the world. Plus, you get an adorable prize for completing it! A prize for having fun?! Yes, please!

    Sarah, best of luck booking your Enchanting Extras! I am wishing you the most magical and memorable summer vacation. I hope this was helpful, and I hope you stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
