Great question! We are going the third week in June and AK is our least favorite of the parks. I have done the same and only allocated 2-8PM for this park. I am curious about what other’s think and if they have done this also?
I’m sure @OBNurseNH and others will chime in, but I remember her writing something about KS is best later in the day due to a shorter line. Then there is the bird show, Lion King, Nemo is reopening soon, Everest, all the lovely trails around the tree and the animal trails too. Don’t forget the animation experience and Rafiki’s Planet (train ride out there). I forgot about P.land… b/c I don’t go there, but there’s that too. Oh, you should do the Rhino Tour, it was amazing! Oh, I forgot the R. tour is only at 11am.
The trails are open until 7ish
Animation Experience has it’s last show around 5
The last FOTLK is around 5 as well
Y&Y is not booking past 430pm recently for whatever stupid reason.
Tree of Life Awakenings are not happening now
Safari is AMAZING at end of day. Best time to ride - walk on and tons of animals
It won’t be dark enough to enjoy Pandora at dark but you could ride FOP at end of day with little wait and maybe by the time you exited Pandora would be lit up.
What I would do in that time frame is:
Tree of Life
Expedition Everest either single rider or LL, but even if neither the wait isn’t long
Maharaja Jungle Trek
If Animation Experience and FOTLK are important to you, skip Tree of LIfe and insert those there. You should still be able to do the rest.
No!! Especially not at the cost of skipping FFF and FOTLK.
DH and I go there rarely, usually just to remind ourselves that it doesn’t really offer much for our interest level. The train ride is unexciting - seats face to the right, it’s a simple out-and-back over same area. Not much of a view. Others have seen a few things, but very limited.
