Kenny the Pirate’s Fastpass+ enabled Animal Kingdom Touring Plan including characters for Cold Weather months
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.
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.
If you aren’t using FP+ for Festival of the Lion King, you should arrive 30 to 45 minutes early.
Guests are allowed to choose any 3 of the following attractions:
Reserve Fastpass+ for the following:
