The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic Dining Package – Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Walt Disney World Resort
written by Crystal Boston, Travel Specialist
As I shared in a previous blog, my husband and I recently moved to the Orlando area, primarily to be closer to the magic of Disney that we so love! One of our goals is to try new (to us) restaurants and experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. We recently experienced the newly released The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic Dining Package at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park which will be available for a limited time. You can reserve the The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic Dining Package for breakfast, lunch or dinner at Tusker House Restaurant, which includes an all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet [Disney Dining Plan eligible] located in the Africa area of the park, or the newly opened Tiffins for lunch and dinner, which includes your choice of appetizer, entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage [Disney Dining Plan eligible] located in the Discovery Island area. With either option, you must plan to dine no later than 2 ½ hours prior to your designated performance time of The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic. Typically there are 2 performances each night with the dining package offered for the first performance which begins at either 8:30 pm when there are 2 performances scheduled and 9 pm when there is only one performance scheduled.
We chose Tusker House Restaurant for breakfast for our dining package so that we would have the rest of the day to explore and enjoy the park. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park is now a FULL DAY park, staying open until 11 pm most nights with a Kilimanjaro Safaris after dark experience and other new nighttime experiences such as Harambe Parti in Africa and Discovery Island Carnivale, and don’t miss the Tree of Life Awakenings as you leave the park at the end of your day!
Now, back to The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic… The show was a dazzling spectacle with stunning effects, performers and music, a magical way to spend twenty minutes! It told the story of The Jungle Book film well, and it was highlighted by over-the-top Bollywood folly. The choreography was fun, the cast was a spectacle in and of itself, and the projections were vibrant and creatively-placed. There are so many things going on at once on the stages! It was a really entertaining way to preview the new on-lake experiences that Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park’s nighttime festivities have to offer. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience!
Overall, this experience was top-rated; I highly recommend The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic Dining Package and hope you choose to experience this dining adventure on your next visit to the Walt Disney world Resort too!
