Backstage Safari tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be retired Feb. 27, and an enhanced version of the tour will debut March 1 as Backstage Tales.


Backstage Tales will give Guests the opportunity to experience behind-the-scenes tales and “tails.” During this in-depth program, Guests will get an insider’s look at the innovative ways Disney is meeting challenges in areas such as conservation, animal nutrition and medicine, animal care and behavioral studies.

Guests will:

Visit the Animal Nutrition Center and see how more than 3 tons of food are prepared and distributed each day.

Go behind the scenes and explore a backstage animal-housing area.

Tour the state-of-the-art veterinary hospital, where they may witness animals being treated.

Stop by the Animal Programs Administration building and learn how Disney promotes global wildlife conservation and animal well-being.

Backstage Tales, which joins Wild Africa Trek as a premium experience at the park, will be offered to Guests ages 12 years and older daily, 7:30-11:15 a.m.

Guests can continue to book Backstage Safari by contacting 407-WDW-TOUR (407-939-8687) for tours through Feb. 27. Backstage Safari is offered every Monday and Wednesday-Friday, 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m.
