Always good but not my favorite
Sep 2020 • Family
It’s Disney so you know it’s good. Doesn’t have “the magic” like the other parks. It seems a bit cramped for me. Dino land feels like you left Disney and went to some other company. Very “carnival” like. Safari is alway good- you always see animals. Lion King show is well done and so is the finding Nemo show. These shows are great to kill an hour when the heat gets to you or if it’s a bit rainy. I would consider this a “half day” park.

Not a magical experience at Animal Kingdon
Jun 2021 • Family
This proves that one bad experience can ruin a trip. We had been following the mask mandate with now problem. I firmly believe that we should be wearing masks and I regularly do. So this isn’t a complaint about the requirement of wearing a mask but how a park employee chose to handle a situation.

While at Disney Animal Kingdom at Everest approx at 1:00pm on 6/14, I was in line for the ride. We were not very far in and located after the 1st building on the west side. (Giving details in case Disney reads these). At one point I removed my mask to take a puff of my asthma inhaler. With in seconds this 50+ male employee with glasses in a orange costume comes thru the hedges points his finger at me yelling “no vaping and put your damn mask on!” I replied sorry and said it’s an inhaler. He replied “just put your damn mask on” which at this point it was.

First, not a very magical experience and two, why so angry? Well obviously this guy shouldn’t be working with the general public especially at Disney. His behavior is appalling for the hospitality industry. Mask issues have been common but the first rule of thumb is to inform not confront. And I know this for fact that this is Disney’s mantra. The worst part, there were people all around me in line that not a single Disney employee told the to mask up.

Anyways, Disney needs to review the video tapes in that area and hopefully they will take action

Interesting Animals
Apr 2021
It was a very enjoyable experience. There was a lot of stuff you just do while walking, and the details of the scenery were amazing. There were plenty of chances to see the animals up close and the safari was very interesting and informative. I would definitely recommend bringing a camera for the safari and for all the other animal enclosures. The Avatar Flight of Passage is one of the best rides to go on. If you plan on going to the Kali River Rapids, wear quick-dry clothing, as you may get soaked.

A great park with cool rides and animals
May 2021
We've been here many times, but this was the first since covid started. We rope dropped Everest and got right on. We then went back to Kilimanjaro and the wait was only about 10 minutes. This park is still magical and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good time in a Disney park. We did take the train to Rafiki's area in back and went to the Animation Experience at Conservation Station. The drawing session with the animator was really cool and we were definitely glad we did it. The bad news is that we had to take the train back too. The wait to get back was over 45 minutes (our longest wait of the day). I'm not sure we will do it again. This is not our favorite park, but we still have a great time here and we will be back as soon as we can!

Amazing day at Animal Kingdom
Jun 2021
There is so much to see here. They have rides and areas broken into categories. We went to 'Africa' for the Safari which was so cool. The food in 'Asia' as well as a water attraction was great! 'Pandora' was my favorite though. Lots to see and very fun rides.

Animal Kingdom is King
Jun 2021 • Family
By far, one of THE BEST theme parks ever
Everywhere you look it is beautiful
Lots of shade and waiting in line does not feel like you are in a line…. It’s ever-moving/ever changing… pleasing to the eyes

The animals appear to be in a realistic/free setting and they are WELL taken care of.
This is beyond a zoo

All Attractions are amazing

Well done Disney!!

Animal Kingdom post-pandemic in June 2021
Jun 2021
The park was an awesome experience. We loved the realism of Flight of Passage. I am a roller coaster nut, but this might be my favorite ride experience ever. The combination of 3D with the wind, spritzes of water, and the moving and inflating of the bladders in the seat, added so much realism. The safari experience was also wonderful. The only things we did not like, Disney was way too strict on the masks, considering we were all vaccinated. Way too hot to wear masks while being in hot lines, and on rides. On the contrary, we loved the water stations, shade areas, and the whole Disney decorating every one comes to expect.

Good Theme Park
Jun 2021 • Family
Animal Kingdom is overall a good park, but would appeal more to younger children. It's like having a great zoo and good theme park combined. There were a few noteworthy rides for older guests, the rides I would recommend are Avatar Flight of Passage (the best ride in the park), Expedition Everest and Dinosaur.

Can be done in about half a day
Jun 2021
Overall experience was nice, I feel that seeing this park in a half day or so is more than enough. We did not get to do the Flight of Passage because the wait was too long and with little ones it was getting hot but we did get to do all the other attractions getting there early enough.

LOVE this place!
Jun 2021
My husband and I had such a great time here on our honeymoon! We went on almost every ride in the park. Lots of places to stop for a cold drink and use the restrooms. Wish the safari ride was longer, it was so cool to see the animals up close! My favorite ride was Kali River Rapids, great for all ages and a nice way to cool off. The lines weren't too long, so it was great to be able to see the whole park in a day.
