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

    At what time can you book a starlight safari at animal kingdom lodge? Is it at 12am 60 days from the date you want to reserve it? Also, if you stay on property do you get the 10 day window at 60 days?

    Jambo, Nate, and welcome to planDisney!

    My pride goes wild for anything related to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Starlight Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is no exception. You are going to go bananas over this after-dark ride through the savannah.

    The booking window begins 60 days prior to your visit and begins at 6:00 a.m. EST on that day. You can make reservations here or in the My Disney Experience app. And Hakuna Matata, one of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resorts Collection Hotel is that you may begin making your reservations 60 days in advance of your arrival for dining and Enchanting Extras for your entire length of stay (up to a 10-night stay), which means you will have no worries about planning your vacation. 

    Nate, since the Starlight Safari begins and ends at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, remember to allow plenty of time to travel from wherever you will be before and after the safari. If you are traveling between another Disney resort hotel, there isn’t a complimentary Disney Transportation bus service between resorts so if you need help planning transportation options, please write back and let me know. I’m happy to help you plan your safari adventure or any other Walt Disney World Resort vacation expedition you are thinking about.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Nate.  Rather than saying goodbye, we would rather say "Kwaherini" which means "go well" in Swahili, and we want to help you “go well” into your vacation, so let us know if you have other questions.

    Kwaherini and see ya’ real soon,
