Animal Kingdom Day 2 Disney World FastPass+ Higher Crowd Itinerary

By Dave Shute

(Note: this is from the FastPass+ Higher Crowd Itinerary. The itinerary works only for certain weeks. See this to see if it works for your dates.)

If your arrival is May 27 or later the summer of 2017, use this for the first and second Sunday–including the FastPass+ you need to book for then–instead of what’s written here!


Today you spend the morning completing your visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and then depart for home. You have no scheduled meals.

You should have FastPass+ for Festival of the Lion King, Kali River Rapids, and a third (pick from your favorite from your First Sunday visit).  Your goal today is to see Africa, complete Asia with Kali River Rapids, and if you have time and interest, see Rafiki’s Planet Watch.

Bring spare clothes and shoes to change into, as you will get soaked on Kali!
