The safari is a must do as is the lion king musical. Make sure to FastPass the expedition everest and the kali water rapids if you can. We like to go to Africa and then to Asia and then to Discovery Island and back to the Oasis.

Fantastic park. Kali River Ride gets you drenched....lovely as it was in the 90s thhe day we went. Expedition Everest is absolutely awesome....really good fun and even the queue is superbly interesting as you visit the Yeti Museum whilst waiting. Take water bottles to refill....it gets sweltering. Animals are lovely and the Tree of Life is a sight to behold.

I have to say this has been my favourite of the Disney parks so far. From the safari to meeting Pocahontas it was all a lot of fun and as a family we learned a lot. Fast pass for the Safari was good and the Lion King show was brilliant, totally blown away. Well done Disney

Visited the park just out of English school holiday season, compared with the English theme parks this was very quiet despite the number of cars in the car park. If you like the British zoo (Chester, Regents Park etc) you will be bitterly disappointed. Not a lot of animals, not in good conditions, by that I mean areas too small.... More

There were to many people and not enough places open for food or shaded areas to accommodate the large crowds.

Overall, a smashing day, but my goodness it's worthy! Lots of hectoring about saving the planet, destruction of rainforests etc. which sits very uncomfortably alongside the piles of Chinese-made tat being peddled in the many, many shops. Despite that, the safari is great and the Everest ride is very cool. The rapids ride is ok - you will get very,... More

Loved the ride thru in the truck. The lady guide/driver had unreal knowledge of the animals. I thought I had a clue. These people truly love their jobs

We enjoyed our visits to animal kingdom- it was easy to get to ( we used the disney buses provided by their hotels) the animals seemed well cared for and there was often a specialist for each animal nearby for any questions. Disney seem to be putting an effort into conservation and protecting animals. The safari is a must. We... More

I didnt liked this park to much. There were alot of places closed and I havnt seen a lot of animals because they said they are hiding. In addition, they need to improve thier safari ride it didnt worth that long waiting time. The only ride I liked the bugs cove somthing. It was a 4D ride.

There was a lot of building work which made the day seem cramped and busy. The rides were ok (Everest was the best) but overall we were underwhelmed and left early to go for a swim. Hopefully the improvements will make a difference.
