Disney has announced that they are adding a new premium experience at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom to commemorate the park’s 20th anniversary. Here are the details about the Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary Tour…

The Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary Tour will run from April 1st to May 5th and will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the park and conclude with a VIP viewing of the popular Rivers of Light nighttime show. The tour begins at 11am, so like some of the other tours Disney World has offered in the past, it is an all-day experience.

Some of the tour highlights include:

  • A Visit to Rafiki’s Planet Watch – Go backstage and learn about the animal care program at our state-of-the-art veterinary hospital. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes peek at the Animal Nutrition Center—the meal prep headquarters for more than 1,500 animal residents.
  • Birds Nest Exploration – Play conservationist and check on the homes of the purple martins, a species that migrates here every year.
  • Unforgettable Elephant Encounters – Delve into the wondrous world of our park’s largest inhabitants during a one-hour Caring for Giants tour.
  • VIP Viewing of Rivers of Light – Watch the park’s newest nighttime show along the water from the comfort of a premium seat.

Tickets for the Animal Kingdom 20th Anniversary Tour experience are $59 per person and can be purchased by calling, (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529.
