For our fourth Ultimate Tour attempt, we added a 5th member, Mr. Sean McCrea! His personality and Disney know-how made him a perfect addition to our team. After successfully conquering both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, we focused our attention on Disney’s largest park, Animal Kingdom. Despite the fact that the park hosts a modest number of Core Attractions, its early closing time of 6:30 PM emphasizes the importance of expert preparation.
After months of planning, a date was chosen and our hotels were booked. Our Animal Kingdom Ultimate Tour attempt was scheduled for May 14th and we’d be sleeping at Disney’s Caribbean Beach resort that night. The regular park hours for the day were from 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM, but we would begin our day at 8:00 AM thanks to Early Morning Extra Magic Hours.
