Plus you’ll get a unique safari tour through the African outback, where more than 34 distinct wildlife species seemingly roam free. Escorted by a special guide, you’ll ride through rugged terrain to see some of the world’s most exotic animals in their habitats. Tour guides will provide interesting information on the land and its residents for an expedition you’ll never forget!

Tier II:

The seasonally inspired menu features dishes from around the world. On the appetizer menu, you’ll find items such as Avocado-and-Tomato Salad, Spiced Chickpea Falafel, and Charred Octopus. And for the main course, you’ll get to choose from a selection of entrees like Kamo Ramen (duck confit, soft-poached egg, spiced coconut broth, alba mushrooms, and chili-lime cashew), Shrimp and Grits (with Gulf white shrimp, Anson Mills grits, applewood-smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and smoked pepper jam), Surf and Turf (with grilled local beef tenderloin, butter-poached lobster tail, Yukon gold potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Cape Mountain Whiskey butter), or Fort McCoy Beef Tenderloin (with char-crusted beef tenderloin, loaded crushed potato, seasonal vegetables, bacon-sherry vinaigrette, and crispy shallots).

Of course, save some room for a decadent dessert. Guava Mousse, South American Ganache, and Whipped Cheesecake are among the sweet finales on offer.

During your your meal, you’ll receive special vouchers for priority reserved VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King, a Broadway-style show filled with pageantry, puppetry, and popular songs from the film.

The Tier I Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Package (lunch or dinner at Tiffins Restaurant, priority VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King, and a safari tour) is $99 per adult and $49 per child ages 3-9 (tax and gratuities not included).

  1. I just called Disney to make reservations for January 22, 2019, for the Festival of the Lion King package. There are none available after November 21. Will these become available in the near future, and how far in advance should we be watching to make those reservations?

    We would love to avoid standing in line for 45 minutes for the doors to open by having reserved seating.

    Thank you!!

    DEBK Replies: Sorry, we have no idea whether Disney will extend this special event. If we hear anything we will certainly let everyone know!

  2. I just booked the Tier 1 option for September trip. The details are very very scant. It says in the article that during the meal get the special vouchers for VIP seating…we have the 3pm show and the 6pm dinner, so it is reverse of being able to do that. Plus no mention of when/where/how to go on the unique safari.

    I called Disney and the cast member said it was so new that they had no idea how it was going to work and to call back in a while and maybe (maybe?), they’d have the information I was looking for.

    It sounds like a good deal…if only I knew where and when to be etc.
