DVC Members Say ‘Jambo’ to Safari Spectacular Nights at Animal Kingdom

You’re invited to a private evening party at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  The stifling heat of day gives way to a refreshing evening breeze.  A golden sunset bathes the savanna, and paints the peak of Expedition Everest a remarkable tint of rose.  The crowds are gone.  Surprises await you around every turn.

Welcome to the Disney Vacation Club Safari Spectacular.

Disney Vacation Club: “Celebrating 25 Years…And Beyond!”

DVC members also received email invitations to reserve a special event night (September 6, 13, 22, or 27, 2016) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

(Although the front-row line was considerably longer than usual).  Or walking on to the Kilimanjaro Safaris (open until 11 pm) for a balmy journey through the savanna.  Kali River Rapids, Primeval Whirl, TriceraTop Spin, and It’s Tough to be a Bug were also open for exploration.
