“A Path Less Traveled” Tour Returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for Earth Day 50th Anniversary Celebration

The popular “A Path Less Traveled” Tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is returning to the park in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day! The limited-time tour first debuted in 2018 as part of the park’s milestone 20th anniversary celebration and is now making a comeback, albeit slightly modified, with all backstage portions of the former tour removed.

This limited-time opportunity provides a glimpse into what it takes to bring the magic of animals, culture and conservation to life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Embark on a 2-hour walking tour to discover what it takes to bring the magic of animals, culture and conservation to life. Highlights include:

  • Insider Inspiration: Embark on an onstage walking tour that highlights the use of authentic details, clever construction and imaginative design to tell stories throughout various lands.
  • Conservation Connection: Meet with animal care experts to learn how Disney cares for the animals in the park and what we are doing to save wildlife species worldwide.

The tour will be $69.00, plus tax per guest with a 15% discount for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members. Check-in begins at 7:45 a.m. and the tour runs 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. daily from March 29 – May 2, 2020, with the exception of April 21, 2020. All guests must be 10 years of age or older to participate. Tour participation requires park admission and ticket cost is not included in the tour price.

To reserve a spot in an upcoming A Path Less Traveled Tour, book in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY or visiting the Curiosity Animal Tours kiosk at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, across from Kilimanjaro Safaris, during park hours.

The link to the 2018 tour debut states “the insightful tour allows guests to explore the backstage veterinary hospital and Animal Nutrition Center at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, perform a nest check on a purple martin birdhouse as part of Disney’s ongoing conservation work, enjoy the “Caring for Giants” elephant-viewing experience”. However, the 2020 Disney web site for this tour now states “No backstage components nor direct animal contact are available on this tour.” – plus the price increased $10. Hmmmmmmm…
