    What are the park hours Oct 3 to 12,2014 - same as currently listed on sight? What is average ride wait time for this period? Is there a special location that you sign up for the Kilmanjaro Safari near the front entrance?

    Aloha Kay!

    October is my favorite time of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resorts! If I could pick one time of the year to go, this would be it! I love Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party as well as Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival.

    The hours listed on the Walt Disney World website are correct. While the times might change slightly, it is not likely. During this time period you will see lower wait times than the peak periods of the summer and school holidays such as the week after Christmas or President's Week. I would still use FastPass+ to reduce wait times.

    In addition, you will see longer wait times in Epcot especially on the weekend as the locals will attend the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. I would tour Epcot during the week if possible.

    As for Kilimanjaro Safari, you can reserve a time with FastPass+ or head straight to the ride. The animals are more active in the morning so you might want to tour this first.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
