Now that Disney's Animal Kingdom is the second-most visited park at Walt Disney World after the Magic Kingdom, Disney is looking to capitalize on this park's recently popularity. In addition to changing some dining options around the park, Disney has also introduced some new upcharge events to this park, likely in the hope of increasing revenue alongside this park's growing traffic numbers. If you're looking for something just a little bit extra the next time you visit this park, here is what is now available:
Two new Festival of the Lion King Dining Packages available this month
Beginning later this month on August 13th, Disney's Animal Kingdom will begin offering two new Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages. Both options include a three-course lunch or dinner at Tiffins Restaurant along with reserved priority seating at Festival of the Lion King.
The more expensive Tier I package includes reserved VIP seating at the show as well as a commemorative cast photo and a specially guided safari. This package costs $99 per adult and $49 per child age 3-9.
The more value oriented Tier II package only includes priority reserved seating at Festival of the Lion King in addition to the meal at Tiffins, with no VIP seating or safari included. Cost for this package is substantially less expensive though, at $74 per adult and $29 per child age 3-9.
This new offering will be available daily though the rest of the summer and up until the holiday season kicks off on November 21. No discounts for annual passholders or DVC Members will be available for this dining package, however, guests on the Disney Dining Plan will be able to use two table service entitlements for a Tier II package.
