Wild Africa Trek VIP tour debuts at Disney's Animal Kingdom
This weekend, Walt Disney World debuted a new extra-charge tour for visitors to Disney's Animal Kingdom
The Wild Africa Trek is a new three-hour-tour (insert Gilligan's Island joke here) that takes visitors into remote areas of the park's safari habitat, previously open only to Disney cast members. Disney's built a new series of rope bridges and observation decks to accommodate tour guests.
The tour is an extra charge on top of your theme park ticket. (I was quoted a $129 per person price, and told it was an "introductory" offer.) For a list of other tours, check out our Insider's guide to VIP and backstage tours at Walt Disney World.
I heard that the two bridge crosses are quite the thrill, of course with netting underneath if you happen to mis-step with giant alligators below. All I'm hearing though is great reviews and would definitely like to try this out. I've never done any type of tour in the parks yet.
Sounds pretty cool!
Six of us will be Wild Trekking in February.
Wow! I've done quite a number of Backstage tours and this one looks amazing. I can't wait to get back to the World and go on it.
sounds great! I wonder if this is something like they were thinking about with the after hours park at Animal Kingdom that was rumored in the past year or so?
