We really enjoyed our recent visit to the Animal Kingdom with two of our sons, their spouses and children.The Lion King performance is outstanding. Unfortunately, It's Tough to be a Bug was closed for refurbishment; we always get a kick out of that one. The Kali River Rapids was enjoyed by all but one. It was very hot but it... More

This was our first park, and definitely one of my favourites. First of all think of it more as a wander around place with the odd ride. The rides that are there are amazing (although rain stopped us experiencing the best of them!). We started out at the Lion King show, having arrived in the afternoon and feeling a bit... More

Had a great time. Went here as our second park of 6 with the parkhopper. Used fast passes and really enjoyed the rides with minimal waits and unique bands and a frozen pineapple drink in a wooden carved looking cup! Kids loved safari! Very hot in August and extreme crowds.

We keep going back to Animal Kingdom and we never get tired of it. We always start with the Safari in the early morning. Last time it was truly and special day. We saw a baby giraffe that walked with her family right in front of our jeep, the baby elephant also was precious. We love the feel of the... More

My son loved coming here because he loves animals. The only complaint I have is the badge book, we did thirty badges and towards the end they give a sticker. I would expect because it is disney to at least give a real badge. I thought the roller coaster in Asia was fun, the safari was beautiful and overall great... More

I am not sure what to say about the place. It is simply awesome. Can go back again. We were at Disney land to celebrate our son's 10th birthday and he loved his birthday gift. But you need to plan your day, use the fast pass judiciously to be able to visit the maximum number of attractions. You need probably... More

What a wonderful themepark this is turned into! We went a few years ago when it was first opened and weren't that impressed. It really is a wonderful place to go so I would highly recommend it!

We visited here on our last day in Orlando, which was well planned, as there is till less to do in this park than any of the other 3 Disney Parks. We were staying on Disney, so we had booked our Fastpasses 2 months in advance and were pleased as the rides we chose all had long queues, even though... More
