There are many rides in the park that you can get wet on. During warmer days these are very popular and lines will get pretty long by around noon. I would ride some of these first. (Bring a change of clothes-there are lockers you can keep things in) or wear clothes /shoes that dry easily. There are also things like a jeep ride thru the jungle and some shows. The good seats at shows fill up quickly so if you want to be up close get there at least 20 min early.

2. Re: Bush gardens

are you riding any coasters at all ?

If so head for Gwazi first, the lines for it can get very long...

No roller coasters, going with 4 year old who isn't tall enough for any of them

Wondering if there are animal exhibits that are best to do first thing?

The Serengeti Safari or the Serengeti Express train ride sound like they might work for you. You'll be able to see the giraffes, zebras, etc, up close. The Sesame Street Safari of Fun might also be good for your child. Then if you feel up to it, check out the milder water rides and other attractions.

Just got back, for us the animal hospital should have been first, got there about 20 minutes after we arrived and they were finishing up for the day, they do everything at 930am so 1030am is a bit late

We saw the cheetahs first and then hippo trek

Today was a really slow day so we were able to see all the shows and exhibits in eight hours

I think its much better than animal kingdom
