    If we have a Tusker House breakfast at 10:35, will we be able to make a 11:30 AM - 11:45 AM fastpass for Lion King/Showtime: 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM? I know the LK theater is right next to Tusker House. Or should we cancel the LK FP? Is there any leeway?

    Hi, there!

     Jambo and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Ann, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner - how exciting!

     I'm so excited to hear about your plans at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. My family loves dining at Tusker House Restaurant, and my all-time favorite show at Walt Disney World Resort is Festival of the Lion King; I think you have the perfect morning planned! It's my pleasure to answer your question about your upcoming reservations.

     My family has found that we spend at least one hour on any Character Dining experience. If your dining reservation at Tusker House Restaurant is scheduled for 10:35 AM, I wouldn't expect to be done any sooner than 11:35 AM. You are correct that the Festival of the Lion King theatre is just behind Tusker House Restaurant. In order to enjoy FastPass+ seating, you would need to arrive to the theatre no later than 11:45 AM. If you experience a wait for your table, or if you wish to take your time enjoying a leisurely brunch with the company of Safari Donald Duck and his friends, you may miss your FastPass+ arrival window.

     Ann, I have never made a FastPass+ selection for Festival of the Lion King and my family has always had great seats for the show! If you cancel your FastPass+ selection, you will have an additional 15 minutes to make it to the 12:00 PM showtime. You can cancel your FastPass+ for Festival of the Lion King, or alter your arrival window using My Disney Experience

     Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
