Kilimanjaro Safari vehicle

    If we are doing the Festival of Lion King Tier 1 package with the safari, can we skip the Kilimanjaro Safari? Is it pretty much the same safari? Thanks in advance

    Hi Brent,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Festival of the Lion King is my favorite show at Walt Disney World Resort. I was so excited when they announced the Festival of the Lion King dining packages and was even more excited when they extended the dates. I'm hoping to enjoy this dining event myself! 

    I spoke to a Cast Member to get clarity on the Safari portion of the package. You do travel on one of the standard vehicles from Kilimanjaro Safaris but you have fewer people with you and you have an additional special host. You will have more opportunities to ask questions and learn more details about the animals on the Safari. 

    If I were in shoes I wouldn't use a FastPass+ selection for Kilimanjaro Safari, but I wouldn't rule out visiting it a second time. You might find you want to see the animals again once you have learned more from your special host. 

    Brent, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if you have any other planning questions! 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
