    We are visiting AK in June and the magic hours are from 8-9am. Can you tell me if I can ride Kilamajaro Safaris during the magic hours or will I have to wait until the park opens at 9am. Also, should I use a fast pass if going that early in the morning

    Hey Aneta-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know why you want to know this answer. You want to be the first out on the Kilimanjaro Safari bus so you can yell "Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba Sithi uhm ingonyama.” to see if all the animals run to you. Pure genius!

    Kilimanjaro Safaris will be available during morning Extra Magic Hours along with DINOSAUR, Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, It’s Tough to be a Bug! and Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. Getting there early means the safari should be alive with active animals. Walt Disney World Resort, however, may change which attractions are open or closed during Extra Magic hours at their discretion without notice due to a variety of reasons.

    Personally, I would take the earliest safari tour without a FastPass+ reservation and make my FastPass+ reservations for Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. I don’t monkey around with this safari. Marvel at the awesome Baobab trees, termite hills, crocodile ponds, Scimitar oryx, okapi, rhinos and lions. If you are lucky you may see the new sable antelope calves. Once a giraffe was so close to us we could almost touch it. My kids went ape. This is not just a zoo but a journey for the mind and body. Get your adventurous side ready for this experience in the wild savannah.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
