    Planning a last minute trip for May.Staying at AKL.Was hoping to get Tusker House early AM for our departure day. Got 925am.Plane leaves at 240pm.Do you think we can make it back to AKL to catch ME? Will they let us into park before the 9am rush to safari?

    Hi Erica!

       That is so awesome that you booked a trip to Walt Disney World and that you are going to stay in the Animal Kingdom Lodge!  It looks like you will have enough time to eat at Tusker House for breakfast and still make your Magical Express pickup time.  Magical Express typically picks guests up at their Resort 3 hours before their flight is scheduled to depart Orlando International Airport.  As long as you are back to Animal Kingdom Lodge by 11:40 am you should be fine.  I would recommend that you be at the front of Animal Kingdom by 11:10 am to catch a bus back to Animal Kingdom Lodge.  You should have a little over an hour and a half to enjoy your breakfast.  The Cast Members should let you in before the Park opens so that you can make your breakfast reservation on time.  If you arrive at the restaurant early, you may be allowed into the Tusker House a little earlier than your dinning reservation.  I would recommend that you have all of your luggage ready and check out of your room before you go to breakfast.  You can leave all of your luggage at Luggage Services or Bell Services at the Resort.

    I hope that you have a magical breakfast at Tusker House on your next trip to Walt Disney World!
