    The Wanyama Safari & Dinner says it is for 8 and up. My boys are 6, 8, & 10...is 8 a guideline or a rule? The 6 year old is WILD about animals and SUPER pumped to be staying at AKL, so I'm hoping he will be eligible. If not...can you suggest a cool

    Hi Mindy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip!  The Animal Kingdom Lodge is truly spectacular, and you will be sure to find so many things to see and do there.

    The Wanyami Safari Resort Tour at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is designed exclusively for Guests of this resort.  It is a spectacular way to get to spend time with the animals up close!  And, it includes a phenomenal dinner at Jiko-The Cooking Place, afterwards.

    I took the liberty just now of calling a Cast Member with Itinerary Planning at the Animal Kingdom Lodge to make sure I got this answer correct.

    Unfortunately, the age guideline for the Wanyama Safari Resort Tour at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (8 and over) is strictly enforced.  The tour itself lasts over 1 1/2 hours, and there are no bathroom breaks, which can be pretty excruciating for the younger set!

    However, there is an exception to this rule - if you purchase all 12 seats on the tour, it is considered a personal tour, and you can take along whomever you would like.  Maybe you know some more Guests of the AKL who would be interested in going along?

    Even if you do not get to experience this specific tour on this trip, I am positive that you will find many activities for the entire family to enjoy together at this spectacular Disney Resort.  Be sure to check with the front desk and/or concierge upon check-in for a schedule of all of the activities planned throughout your stay.  Also, you may want to check out Tours and Special Experiences that are available throughout all of the Walt Disney World Parks & Resorts!

    Have a magical time at Walt Disney World!
