  • Getting Up Close with the Rhinos

    I just booked the Up Close with Rhinos tour at Animal Kingdom for Wednesday, December 4. There is only one tour per day, and it is at 11:00 AM. I won't get to take any photos on the tour whatsoever, but I should be able to pet a rhino. Not a bad trade off. I am so excited. This tour fills up fast so if any pixies who are going to be there at the same time are interested in joining us, you'll need to call soon. There is a DVC and AP discount of $15 off the $40 tour price. I am so excited!

    Awesome! Sounds like a lot of fun.

    I’m hoping to take a similar tour, Caring for Giants (I think that’s what it’s called), on our next trip.

          I took this tour two years ago and well worth it. Photos are allowed and seeing the elephants up close in a viewing area is amazing. The guides are great and give you lots of great info.

              We have taken the Caring for Giants twice now. It is awesome! Hope you enjoy it! Dave reminded me that you can take photos on that one, as many as you like. I'm a little sad that at no point can I take a rhino photo. But I'm not too sad.

                That’s disappointing that you can’t take pictures, but you’ll make memories that will last forever. Enjoy!

                    How great you're going to be able to enjoy the tour together - can't wait to hear all about it. It's one I want to do on our next WDW visit.

                      You are going to enjoy it. We took this tour last month. The white rhinos are absolutely gorgeous! We saw Kiama and her mother Kendi. I could have stayed there all afternoon petting her. I would do the tour again.
                      That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

                        Ahh, I was hoping to take that one last month, but I didn't realize it filled up so quickly and missed out. I did take the Caring for Giants tour and loved it.

                          Now I'm even more excited about this rhino tour! We're going to have so much fun!

                            I love these more affordable animal tours at AK. I hope they keep them and even add some, like on to see the giraffes.
