The most important part of a great day at Animal Kingdom with no waits is to arrive at least 45 minutes before park opening.  If you arrive a little later and see the turnstiles already full, you might want to use the Rainforest Cafe entrance.

ktp iconThis plan was designed to be able to see all the major shows, ride only the rides that a small child would enjoy and meet every character in one day from 9:00 to 5:00 PM without much backtracking or rushing around.

Why did I place Kali River Rapids so late into the day?  Because I don’t like to walk around the park wet all day.  It causes chaffing and irritation.  If you choose to ride earlier, you might want to consider bringing a change of clothing along.  Ponchos don’t help very much on this ride!

Why is Kilimanjaro Safaris first on the list?  Because the animals are moving about and eating early in the day and you’ll get to save your Fastpass for another attraction.  The worst time to ride the Safaris truck is mid-day because it’s hot and the animals are sedentary and hidden in the shade.

If you aren’t using FP+ for Finding Nemo the Musical, you should plan to arrive 15 to 30 minutes early.
