“Great Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This was my first time visiting Animal Kingdom. I did not know what to expect. I really enjoyed it. The theme park is very nicely decorated and I loved the atmosphere. I would recommend spending your first day at the parks here. For the most part, you will be in the shade and you can see the whole park in about 7 hours. Go to Expedition Everest and the Kilimanjaro Safaris in the morning. All of the animals are awake in the morning and we got to take some wonderful pictures. Do not miss this or EE. We saw the Finding Nemo Musical and loved it.

“Expedition Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Expedition Everest was great. I recommend it to anyone who likes Roller Coasters. The queue area included a walk through a "base camp store and Yeti museum". My 5 year old daughter teases me that I screamed like a girl during the ride. Nevertheless, I had FUN!

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The safari ride was wonderful. You see many animals roaming free. We ate at Tusker Restaurant, a character one,which was good food and the characters took time with the children and even did a Congo Line. It's Tough to Be a Bug is for older children. Even my 8 year old grandson didn't like it. He wouldn't admit it but I think it was scary for him.

“WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

As a student studying animal behaviour and conservation at University this had to be my favourite park. I'm an animal person and especially a tiger person and the tigers at this park were so beautiful that it just emphasised my dream to work with these animals.
I spent the 1st Jan at this park and it really made a great start to my 2013.
