The Animal Kingdom is fun. Try the Safari, but get there very early or the lines will be hours long. If you try the Rapids ride, just beware that you will get soaked...and I mean soaked! Wear a bathing suit and a change of shoes/ socks or the rest of your day will be ruined.

We were VERY excited to visit this park while at Disney. We actually slotted an entire day for this park, when we probably could have seen everything in a half day. This park is just an over priced zoo. I actually have more fun at an actual zoo than this park. The one plus was the safari ride as we... More

I loved the monkeys. They are my favorites. It rained for most of the day, but we made the most out of it

This is a really fantastic parc. Not quite as crowded as the others and give you a really 'authentic' experience. Really enjoyed our day here. The safari in Africa was wonderful. The musicians were great and added a huge amount of atmosphere. Much better than Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios or Epcot.

This is just my opinion but this was the best of all the parks! You wont find as many crowds yet you still get the disney feel. Try to go before they open the Avitar park there, after that it will get nuts. Dont miss the safari ride. We went as the last ride before the park closed so the... More

Much to do and see. Disney is always worth the price of admission. We especially enjoyed the Flights of Wonder bird show. It always amazes me at how smart the animal kingdom is what they are capable of when there is a reward at the end. However, I still cannot understand why the birds that can fly do not take... More

We went to Animal Kingdom with our two daughters aged 4 and 8. It is definitely my favourite park in Florida. First of all, it does not "feel" like a park. The animals and trees and landscape is all wonderful. Our favourite attraction there was the safari. The girls want to go on a real safari in Africa now! They... More

If you want a quieter day without the queuing then this park is probably the best. If you have fast pass plus with your Disney tickets (most tickets do now) then you can book fast passes for expedition Everest, Kali river rapids and the safari and save loads of time as the other attractions are smaller and therefore shorter queues....

This park is a nice combination of a zoo with a safari, some really good shows and a few roller coaster.
