Wild Africa Trek Question?

I'm looking into Disney's Wild Africa Trek and was interested to know how far in advance it was possible to book the Tour?

Also anyone have links to share where I can collect more details and see reviews on the Tour. Your own trip reports and experiences would be great too

I think it is 180 days. If not, I will be corrected. Direct number for the Trek is 407 938-1373.

When I scheduled last June it was sometime in March I think when I was finally able to book. It was not a specific number of days out and they were not able to even say when it would be able to be booked. My TA called every MWF for months trying to book for me. It did not sell out because we had to reschedule our trip and she was able to rebook the same morning time <2 months ahead without problem for July. I hope that booking window has changed because I felt so bad having my TA make all those calls. My AAA agent was amazing because she had to rebook my entire trip because of emergency and then I got a pin and she redid the trip to give me a 30% discount.

It seems to be inconsistent. For our June trip earlier this year, I think it was mid to late February when I could finally book it. Unfortunately, you just have to keep checking.

EDIT: I checked and we were able to book for June 19th on February 24th.

I just called this week for Dec 17 and got it easy peasy. I think it's around 90-ish out. I know it isn't on the same 180 days as are ADR's I kind of cringed at the price, but wanted to do something different for my DD and DH as their WDW surprise. I surprise them with something on vacations, so this year, it's at AK. We really enjoy AK, I know some are hot/cold on it. We have the 2nd tour at 8:45am. It includes a bfast snack and the later ones include lunch. She said arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the tour. If your tour starts before park opens they will be waiting for you at the gate most usually, otherwise, they will let you in and you will veer left and go across the bridge to check in. Cannot carry anything on the tour that cannot be carabiner-ed onto your person., ie., small camera. There are lockers for your other belongings. Close toed shoes, outdoor pants, clothing. Will need your I.D at check in.
