Itinerary Changes Week Beginning 10/26/2019

By Dave Shute

My Extra Extra Magic Hours Itinerary largely works for the week beginning 10/26, but (at least based on current schedules) it won’t work for the second Animal Kingdom Day–when the daily Extra Magic Hours and 8a opens are no longer present. So that day has to change, so the first Animal Kingdom day has to change too.

Below are the new itineraries for each day, and after them the new entries on the To-Do List.

ANIMAL KINGDOM DAY 1 FIRST SUNDAY AGENDA  10/27/19

Today you begin and end your day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which you will return to next Sunday morning. You should have dinner booked at Tusker House as the Rivers of Light Dining Package.

You should have FastPass+ for Na’vi River Journey, Finding Nemo, and Kali River Rapids. Bring spare socks and shoes to change into after Kali River Rapids.

MORNING PLAN

  • Arrive at the turnstiles by 6.30a
  • At open, head to and ride Expedition Everest
  • Go to Africa and see Kilimanjaro Safaris
  • Got to Dinoland and see DINOSAUR
  • See the other two rides in Dinoland
  • See Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail
  • See Na’vi River Journey (FastPass+)
  • Explore Pandora
  • Have an early lunch
  • See the noon Finding Nemo: The Musical (FastPass+)

ANIMAL KINGDOM DAY 2 SECOND SUNDAY AGENDA  11/3/19

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 Avatar: Flight of Passage and Festival of the Lion King,

MORNING

  • Check out and note your instructions for Disney’s Magical Express if you are using it.  If you aren’t, for many domestic airlines you’ll be able to check bags and print boarding passes near the front desk.  This is a tip-based service.  You can also store your bags at the bell stand
  • Arrive at Animal Kingdom by opening time

AT THE PARK

  • Arrive at park open
  • See Maharajah Jungle Trails
  • Ride Avatar Flight of Passage (FastPass+)
  • See the 11a Festival of the Lion King (FastPass+)
