After waiting 45 minutes to get on the dino ride simulator and then another 20 sitting on the ride while they tried to fix it, we were abruptly told to leave because the ride was broken. Ok well thats all fine but then since we were on the ride we left through the exit and everyone who was on the... More

As usual Disney did a Great job with Animal Kingdom. It has a good mix or fun rides, shows, character meetings, etc. Our family spent the majority of 1 day here enjoying the rides especially Killamajaro Safari where you get to see so many animals and Kali river rapids. The flights of wonder show was very entertaining with several beautiful... More

Our first visit to Florida and our first park. We visited the park with our 6yr old boy who loves animals and hates fast rides. So I can comment on the animals but not any rides! The Kilimanjaro Safari was first up and was brilliant. The whole Africa theme was authentic enough (as was Asia). We ate at Yak and... More

This is a fun park - you can do all the best stuff in a half day if you like which is what we always do. We get there at open and leave around 1 or 1:30 so we can spend the afternoon swimming and relaxing.

Love the carnival feel and the African music, what a great atmosphere. The Lion King is an absolute must see I could watch this over and over, kids sat still and were fascinated. Plenty of animals to see, safari is brilliant too. Expedition everest is the best ride by far! Didn't have enough time to watch the Nemo show which... More

Animal Kingdom is a park like no other. Seeing animals in as close to their natural environment either on a walk round or on the safari buses. Last visit we were so lucky on the safari. We passed some elephants in the water playing with their babies, spraying them with water out of their trunks. Awesome sight the Everest ride... More

I love disney, but I was shocked to read that autistic and other disabled children don't get a skip the line pass. Based on my experience, I had nothing but a great time there. The rapids are cool, expedition Everest is thrilling, and the animals are amazing. So sorry to hear that disney doesn't offer a ride pass to disabled... More
