Do you like Rafiki's?

You'll miss the benefit of low crowds at rope drop for the safari and even with crowd levels like that, I'd bet it's still 30+ minutes. Using your FP+ shortly after you arrive prevents you from waiting stand by and also may give you time to obtain kiosk FPs after your booked 3 are finished.

3 - We are always coming from Tusker House, so we start with the safari (skip Rafiki's) and then make our way through Africa, Asia, Dinoland, etc. We don't like to criss-cross either.

You mentioned skipping Rafiki's. If I remember correctly, that is the train ride to the conservation station.....correct? I do not remember much about it. Would you recommend going?

Thanks

We've done it 4 years now. Nice train ride, some cool educational stuff, all with a basic petting zoo,. A must do IMHO. But also there are a ton of secret passage ways that are designed in a way that don't stand out...these are cool to explore. Also look for DiVine. She blends in with the trees, usually just past Africa.
