    Enjoy this PRO TIP when visiting Kilimanjaro Safaris!

    Visiting Disney World during this Holiday Season can be quite tricky! We definitely agree, that’s why we want to share a hidden tip that will help you improve your next Disney World Experience. You are welcome!

    A place in constant change

    Disney World is an interesting subject to study. There are a lot of factors that change throughout the years which can make an attraction more or less crowded depending on many variables, from weather to time of the day and the day of the week you are visiting.

    Animal Kingdom, a bridge to nature

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a fan favorite for... well, animal lovers and especially kids. It's a place where one can disconnect from the craziness of going around the parks and connect with the natural and relaxing surroundings that the park offers.

    A favorite Animal Kingdom attraction is Kilimanjaro Safaris, where visitors can rest their legs from walking all day long. Visitors hop on a designated vehicle and go around spotting wild animals like hippos, rhinos and even lions.

    Did you know this?

    However, to enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris at its fullest it's important to understand how the ride works with this pro tip. The best moments to visit the attraction first is when it's super early in the day or a few hours before its official closing time!

    Super early still earns the gold medal. Animals are still wandering around after a good night of sleep, and they aren't feeling sleepy after having lunch (just like us humans, huh?) There is a very good chance that they will be mostly active and patrolling the area from 8:00 a.m. all the way to 11:30 a.m., giving you the perfect opportunity for some amazing pictures.

    Tips for the owls of the night

    If you'd rather explore the safari at the end of the day, heads up people, because closing times may change depending on the time of the year

    You can always check the updated schedule for Animal Kingdom on the My Disney Experience app. Park times will be shown there so you can plan everything in advance.

    Well, now you know this important piece of information that is in the dark for many visitors and can save you a good amount of time and help you get the most out of Kilimanjaro Safaris.
