    We are visiting WDW in October and were hoping to book "Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package – Tier I" when visiting AK; however only booking online to 28th September. Is this package ending?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Laura!

    I'm so glad you're here to talk about one of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort: the food! There is some true world-class dining to try there, and I think that Disney's Animal Kingdom has some of the best food of any of the four theme parks. The only way to improve upon an amazing meal at Tiffins Restaurant is for it to include VIP seating to Festival of the Lion King and a guided safari, so let's talk a little bit about the Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package - Tier I.

    I've checked the calendar for the dining package and you're right, at the moment, it appears that it's only available to be booked for dates up to September 28 of this year, but that doesn't necessarily mean it won't continue past then. When this new dining package was introduced late last year, it was only set to run through the end of November but it's still being offered today, so you never know what might happen! I suggest that you keep checking the calendar as we get closer to your arrival date this fall to see if more dates are added. You can always make dining reservations now, and modify them later at no charge using My Disney Experience if you do end up booking the dining package for your family.

    I hope this answers your questions, Laura, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
