This was probably my 12th visit to Animal Kingdom over the years and by far, yesterday was my absolutely favorite visit of all time!! 1. We didn't even need our fast passes as we literally walked onto the Safari, Everest and the River Rapids! 2. The temperature was perfect. 3. We had time to walk through all of the animal... More

This is not my favorite disney park but it is still worth visiting. It is definitely a much slower paced park with only 3 big rides. The park is about animals and conservation, so there is lots of education throughout the park. I loved the Nemo the musical, it is like a trailer to a west end show, it's tough... More

Wonderful time--tiring. Always busy, lots of people. Most rides take awhile to get on-not thrilled with fast pass, rather take my chances. Six friends went and stayed at Saratoga Springs Resort, since some of us were from that area in NY state. It was ok-they had photos on walls and Saratoga names, but honestly, it was like the other resorts.... More

Of the four Disney parks we went, this was our most enjoyable day. A park with more relaxation. However, you must use your fast pass wisely and the safari trip is an absolute must. Nemo was excellent along with the Lion King and the Bird show, in fact a faultless day. Do not underestimate this park, it's a great day

I loved how they set up the park. My son loved the dinosaur area that they have. The park is a great time with many shaded areas so if it is a hot day this is the pace to go.

Love Animal Kingdom, but like all disney parks gets sooo busy at weekends which makes it difficult to move freely around. Everest ride is great fun and the safari is a must do - do early in day or last thing before park closes to maximise animal sightings. Be good to see what park is like once all the building... More

I enjoy this park, but it is very large and feels exceptionally hot (maybe because of all the walking). Although I could easily spend a full day (or more here), this could be done in a half-day if you just do the attractions you are most interested in. Don't miss Kilimanjaro Safaris or the Festival of the Lion King Show!

The attractions are okay but the park is undergoing what looks like a considerable revamp the staff are dictarial as is the norm at Disney parks but here they were plain rude and lied to us when we were trying to do a child swap on one of the rides at the end of the day they said there was... More

One of my favorite parks! I love everything about this park. It has some of the best themed areas and rides of all of Disney world! Love love love! They have some construction going on right now but it isnt that big of a deal.

Expedition Everest was perhaps the best ride in all of Walt Disney World. My 2 boys (ages 8 & 7) rode it 4 times, and they loved it. I also rode it 4 times with them and it was an awesome experience, for sure! (At the very end of the ride, look to your upper right, and you'll see the... More
