    Is two hours enough time from Orlando airport to a ride on a fast pass in Animal Kingdom? If not, is it too late to book safari at noon (will animals be hiding due to heat)? 1/1/20 is our trip.

    Hello there, Miriam! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    I completely understand your excitement over arriving at Walt Disney World Resort! I can hardly contain myself once I arrive at Orlando International Airport and am about to board Disney's Magical Express

    I think that two hours may be cutting it a bit close as far as making it to your FastPass+ reservation! Generally, I try to allow at least an hour and a half to travel from Orlando International Airport to my Disney Resort hotel. This time can always vary based on how many Guests need to be dropped off along the way to your Disney Resort hotel, as well! Personally, I would likely lean towards making the later FastPass+ reservation!

    Fortunately, you will find that the majority of animals on Kilamanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be awake and active throughout the day! Since you will be traveling during the cooler time of the year, the heat will likely not have as large of an impact on their temperament. That being said, if you are still concerned, you can always make your FastPass+ reservations for later in the evening. This tends to provide a very different and fun experience!

    Have fun continuing to plan for your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!
