Animal Kingdom is a beautiful park, but we were disappointed that there were not more opportunities to show our little guy zoo animals; after all this is "Animal Kingdom." We were expecting more zoo like exhibits where we could stand and watch the animals, but only found one and the tigers were behind a glass wall- very disappointing. Given the... More

I know Magic Kingdom is the overwhelming favorite but my fave is Animal Kingdom. I always do the Kilimanjaro Safari ride twice when the gates open. Tuskers is fun. DO NOT MISS Nemo, the musical or the Festival of the Lion King. A relaxing day because it's a smaller park (not counting the Serengheti) and it closes at 6. Enjoy.

Compared to most of the other Orlando Disney Park, I find Animal Kingdom relatively compact and it does not feel as "crazy" as some of the other parks. A welcomed break! What I liked: Good mix of shows, rides and animal experience. Probably one of the best "character buffet" at Tusker House (food wise). On a "cooler" day, crowds will... More

As an animal lover, vegetarian and one who is not usually fond of zoos, I went to the Animal Kingdom with hesitation due to my family wanting to go. BOY am I glad I put my morals aside and went. The park was immaculate. All the animals had more than adequate habitats and you could tell they are all taken... More

this park has a lot of great disney theming, but if you have a fantastic zoo, like we do in NC, it may be a bit repetitive. if you dont have a great zoo nearby, you will love this park! it does get busy on the walkways, so plan on taking a while between attractions. also, make sure to get... More

I was worried about seeing 'caged' 'held' animals, but was very pleasantly relieved. All of the animals seem very well cared for, healthy and in very lush environments. Staff very happy to answer questions about the animal care, veterinary care and students, and animal research going on in the park...much, much more than an 'attraction' or a 'zoo'. Took the...

1 of the attractions we wanted to see was closed. After doing the other Disney world parks you have enough by the end of the day. definitely get your fast passes online well in advance to select the exact rides that you want to go on to avoid the waiting times. You will get wet on the rapids ride so... More

In only one day we were able to go on a jungle safari, meet Safari Donald Duck and Pocahontas, get frightened by a giant Yeti while on Expedition Everest and see African dancers and giant Lions and elephants in the Lion King show! Animal Kingdom is a truly fantastic and unique park with so very much to offer visitors! We... More

Lots of fun to be had at the Animal Kingdom. Rides, especially the Safari ride, are great fun. Many animals to see and learn about. Very nice for families.
