Backstage tours at Disney give glimpses into sights that we normally would not see during a day in the parks. These tours are offered at an additional cost and cover everything from horticulture to costuming. Tours are a fantastic alternative to the parks and a wonderful addition to any Disney vacation.
The Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a 3 hour VIP tour that should be added to every Disney fan’s bucket list. Guests ages 8 and up have some very close encounters with the star residents of the Animal Kingdom Savannah. During the tour you will be guided through a viewing of hippos and crocodiles from a rope bridge 10 feet above. Don’t worry…you are securely harnessed to a cable, so there will be no unfortunate face-to-face meetings with Tick-Tock the Crocodile.
During your tour, you will also have the opportunity to try some African-inspired snack foods. Depending on the time of day you select for your tour; you will be given either breakfast or lunch menu items.
The tours start at 8:00AM and run every 45 minutes until the last tour of the day at 2:30PM. The expedition does also require theme park admission as well as a charge for the tour. Current tour admission rates can be obtained by calling Disney at (407) WDW- TOUR. Additional details, including restrictions and clothing requirements can be found here.
