Fabulous day out, lots of animals and a wonderful wilderness explorers book for the kids to fill in on their way round, giving lots of info about conservation etc. Expedition Everest and the safari are a must!

Safaris do not appeal to me but there are nice enjoyable rides. Invest in a travel cart and rain wear, you'll need both to make it out. Expect long queues.

although it looked very nice, with a lot of green vegetation, it wasn't my kind of park. I did the safari, which was nice, but gave me mixed feelings. These animals should be out in the wild really, not in a pretty small kind of place to live in. It's not like they can roam around for quite a bit,... More

Disney's Animal Kingdom was a fantastic day out for all of our party. The only disappointment being that 'It's tough to be a bug' was closed down for renovations. I had heard to much about this ride and was excited to ride on my first visit to Florida. Sadly it was not to be but nevermind. The park was absolutely... More

The Park entails several themes. All of which are done to the hilt. You really feel like you are in Asia or Africa. Restaurants reflect the atmosphere and music throughout is wonderful. The key is to walk slowly and take your time. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the Dino Land is HOT...as in... More

A great ride if you don't know what is going to happen on the ride, it's a fast pass ride, standby que was about 30 mins.

Animal Kingdom is fun! Lots of things to see, plenty of animals and birds! This whole park is like walking through the jungles of Asia and Africa. The tree of life and jungle safari are must sees.

Many interesting attractions with wild animals. My preferred is the Kilimanjaro Safari where you get a tour in a safari setting with many wild animals such as hippos, giraffes, elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, etc. Most thrilling ride is the Expedition Everest a roller coaster that runs fast and at a point backwards! Another fun one is the Kali river rapids. If... More

I feel that this park gets overshadowed by the other big Disney parks. There's so much to love about this park! The safari, the rapids (you will get soaked), the roller coaster, the fun exploring areas, the Lion King show, etc. etc. Plan a full day there and really soak in everything about this park. It's quite wonderful.
