    Wink $129 Introductory Jungle Trek; Do this, don't do that...

    Well for an introductory price of $129 it does appear that there are some restrictions about cameras, cell phones and your attire.

    This was one of Jim Hills better articles I've read lately. It has some very useful tips.

    Disney's Night Kingdom lives to see another day (sort of) with DAK's Wild Africa Trek - Jim Hill - Editor In Chief - Jim Hill Media

    This, from what he says was from Disney Trek developer at the bottom of the article. It gave me a giggle. From that statement, I'd don't think I'd want to be one of the first groups to shell out $129.00!

    "UPDATE: I got a call earlier this morning from someone closely associated with the development of Wild Africa Trek who wanted to quickly address one concern that many JHM readers seem to have about this new Disney's Animal Kingdom premium experience. And that's that cameras & cell phones won't be allowed on this tour.

    "It's true that -- mostly due to safety-related reasons -- that we don't want tour participants to bring along their cameras and cell phones. But that doesn't mean that we'll be sending Guests away empty-handed from Wild Africa Trek.

    Over the course of this three-hour-long experience, the Guides themselves will be taking pictures of the participants as they go through various aspects of this tour. And at the end of their Wild Africa Trek, each Guest will be presented with a few complimentary photos for their bush walk through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve. With the option of then purchasing additional images of their tour through
    Disney's PhotoPass program.

    I'm sorry that I can't be more specific about how many free photos we'll giving tour participants. But you have to remember that we haven't actually run any Wild Africa Treks yet. So we don't really know which pictures of which activities the Guests are going to want. More importantly, whether we're going to need to supplement this part of DAK's new premium experience with a video offering.
    It's important to stress here that Wild Africa Trek will be a work-in-progress for its first few weeks of operation. And that we'll be making adjustments to both the tour itself as well as the souvenirs we offer as we go along."

    So I hope that this update clears up any concerns that JHM readers may have about that no-cameras-or-cell-phones rule that Disney has in place (for now, anyway) when it comes to Wild Africa Trek.

    Your thoughts?"

    Well, at least you can always buy more photos if you don't like the photos included with the $129 price.

    We were seriously considering doing this one when we go... but we arrive ONE DAY after the price hike! I just cant shell out the cost of a THIRD person for the two of us and the cost is then so much more than the Keys to the Kingdom tour we were interested in as well.

    I agree, pretty steep for the tour.

    From a logical standpoint, I sort of see the cell phone/camera ban - but I always feel odd without my cell phone...like I'm missing something really important. I don't know how I'd feel about that. I think I'd think about my phone being gone while on the tour, which would really detract from the experience.

    If they would just lower their prices by 20 to 30%, they would get 5 times the amount of people to go on these tours!
