“Enjoyed the parade and rides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

My 10-year-old loved this park more than any of the parks...we've visited all four now..The parade was awesome and I love how enthusiastic the "characters" and workers are....It seems that they enjoy their jobs

“Have you ever been to the Bronx Zoo?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We anticipated seeing amazing things at Disneys Animal Kingdom. There were only a few rides and I was surprised that there were more restaurants and gift shops than rides. Disney parks are amazing next time I would skip this park! Animals are only out in the early morning the park also closes at 7pm so make sure u are there early

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Great day out, my highlight being the safari ride attraction. Not too big either so easy to get around.

“just as great as the others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Animal Kingdom was just as fun as the other parks in Disney. Get fast passes when available. Food is great. Make sure to keep your maps handy with the trees so tall you can't see any land marks through the park. The safari is great but go as early in the morning as possible. for the animals will be eating and you can see them better. Have a great time. We sure did.

“Great place for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We came and loved it! I like the fact that Disney's Animal Kingdom can be enjoyed by children of all ages and adults as well. We loved the Safari in which we were able to see and come into close contact with some of the residents of the protected area. Seen the animals so close was amazing! There is also a self guided tour to see other animals and birds and if you have questions there are well knowledgeable guides to help you. There are also shows and music through out the park. We visited three other parks and by far this one was our favorite!!
