    We've been trying to book the Starlight Safari by signing in at midnight but the days have already been booked. We've also called Disney to book it. How can it be booked seconds after the day opens up? Is there a waiting list? We wanted 3/17.

    Hi Andy!

    There are so many incredible Enchanting Extras to pick from and the Starlight Safari sounds amazing!  I have experienced a few animal oriented extras, but this one is on my list to try soon.

    The Starlight Safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge has very limited occupancy, so spots fill up very fast.  It looks like you'll be visiting right in the heart of spring break, so it's going to be extra busy during that time with tons of guests wanting to book the same experiences.  While there is no waiting list for Enchanting Extras, my suggestion is to just keep looking.  Plans often get shifted around by other guests, so spots could pop up at any time between now and your desired date.  As soon as a guest cancels, the spots become available for others to book.  

    I am often able to grab hard to get dining reservations closer to my visits by stalking the website.  All you need is a little patience and determination.  Since the Starlight Safari has a 2 day cancellation policy, I would definitely check more often in those few days before you are looking to go.  

    If you're interested in a different tour and have an Animal Kingdom Theme Park day planned, I highly recommend Caring for Giants or Up Close with Rhinos.  Both of these tours give you an up close and personal view of either the African elephants or the white rhinos that live in the park. 

    I'm sending lots of pixie dust your way in hopes you'll be able to find spots for the perfect Enchanting Extra for you and your family.

    Have a magical day!
