    Is the wine tasting available at AKL during this time? Also, is the food tour available as well?

    Hey Lunetta!  Welcome back to planDisney!

    I recently returned from my first stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and it was everything I could've imagined and more.  Between the beautiful architecture and incredible views of the savannah from the lobby and many rooms (plus an endless supply of Zebra Domes available from The Mara), it has quickly become one of my favorite Disney Resorts Collection hotels.  My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to explore all the Resort's activities and hidden gems, so I'm looking forward to that during my next visit!

    Unfortunately, many Resort offerings have currently been modified or suspended at this time.  Currently, the daily Culinary Tour at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jiko Wine Tasting, Sense of Africa and Starlight Safari tours are temporarily unavailable. However, Resort offerings can change at any time and many activities have been returning in recent months.  Be sure to keep your eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website prior to your arrival for the most up-to-date lists of tours and experiences at that time.

    Like you, I can't wait to see these activities return, Lunetta, but I have some good news to share –– Disney recently announced that many of its incredible guided tours are returning in 2022.  Beginning in February, experiences like Caring for Giants and Wild Africa Trek will be available for Guests to enjoy once again!  To secure a spot, these experiences and more can currently be booked by visiting the Events and Tours section of the Walt Disney World Resort website.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, Lunetta!  Please don't hesitate to visit us again if you think of new questions –– we're always here to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
