A Wild Adventure for you and your kids!


Disney is providing a special adventure for you and your older kids to enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort's Wild Africa Trek in Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This safari experience, part of the Extras Collection, promises encounters with hippos, giraffes, and even lions. 

A Disney panelist has shared insights into why this expedition is a top choice for families planning their Disney itinerary.

Firstly, this adventure is designed for outdoor enthusiasts, but participants must be at least 8 years old, 48 inches tall, and weigh between 45 and 300 pounds. You can find the full criteria for participating in this experience on the Walt Disney World website. 

Throughout the trek, professional photographers will capture memorable moments, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the adventure without worrying about photos. Yeah, you don't even need to worry about taking your phone out to snap pictures, someone is already doing that for you! Let me tell you, Disney has some good photographers with crazy advanced cameras, so that's cool. After the trek ends, you will receive a photo code to access and download the images.

This experience is a family traverse of the Safi River Valley, where you'll be treated to a delectable snack while observing wildlife in their natural habitat. It's bound to create lasting memories, leaving tweens and teens eager to repeat the adventure. This trip takes 3 hours and costs around $220 per guest. You still need a standard theme park ticket.
