Early Member Mornings

Delight in the sights and sounds of the animal kingdom an hour before the zoo opens to the public. This members-only opportunity is available on select Sundays this summer between 8 and 8:45 a.m.

August 4
August 18

To join us, present your digital membership card or member reservation ticket beginning at 8 a.m. Each entry includes a free guest, regardless of member level. Limit one free guest per membership, not per named adult.

Early entry ends at 8:45 a.m.


Will I see animals?
Some animals may be visible, but others will be off-view as keepers wrap up their morning tasks before opening the zoo.

Do I need to make a member reservation for this event?
Reservations are currently not required.

What if I arrive after 8:45 a.m.?
Early entry ends promptly at 8:45 a.m. so the zoo can prepare to open to the public at 9 a.m. If you arrive after 8:45 a.m., please wait until 9 a.m. to enter the zoo.

How do I bring a guest?
When we scan your digital card or reservation ticket, your guest will be checked in separately. Your guest must arrive with you, the named member, for entry at the same time. Please note that no free guests will be admitted after 8:45 a.m.

If my membership already has a free guest option, can I bring two guests?
Absolutely! If you have a digital card, your covered guests can enter with you without a reservation. If you don't have a digital card, you and your covered guests must have a member reservation. Your extra free guest will check in separately.

Are paid guests allowed?
This benefit is exclusively for members only.
