    Hi there - I was wondering if the add-on events are available for this Spring & Summer. I wanted to book a dessert party during this tip, or try the Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Are those events taking place?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome back to planDisney! While so much has changed in the world around us and the experience at Walt Disney World Resort may look a little different than it used to, I'm happy to share that the magic is definitely still there and waiting for you!

    As part of the phased reopening, many of the special events do still remain modified or unavailable. While both the Wild Africa Trek tour and the dessert parties are currently unavailable to book, that doesn't mean that something couldn't change between now and your summer getaway. I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Know Before You Go page that's dedicated to events, tours, and extras for any updates or announcements. In the meantime, though, I'd encourage you to check out some of the Enchanted Extras that are available to see if any of them sound like they could add that extra bit of pixie dust to your magical vacation. You could also make a reservation with Disney Private VIP Tours to build the perfect day where all your Disney dreams come true! If your taste buds are searching for the perfect sweet treats, I'd also encourage you to watch for the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Foodie Guide, which should be available very soon. The festival will still be going on during your visit, and the Outdoor Kitchens always offer some incredible foods and beverages that you won't want to miss! While all of us who love The Most Magical Place on Earth can't WAIT until the day comes when all of our beloved experiences have reopened, I'm wishing on a star for you that your upcoming visit will be the perfect blend of enjoying traditions and discovering new favorites.

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney again, Jennifer, and come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this summer!
