Looks like Africa! Do the African Safari ride for sure. Exhibition Everest is a wild ride! Some of the vendors (ie beer, hot dogs & sodas) could have been better staffed. One person is not enough. They have live African music throughout the park at different places which I really enjoyed.

We went here first on Wed Feb 18th before the other Parks. This is not worth the $$$$; a lot was under remodeling; they never started the rive ride after they opened, and nothing relly new other than shops to get your $$$, If you are on a budget, go to the other Parks. Disney isn't a cheap place to... More

Not as crowded or hectic as the other parks. Lion King and Nemo shows are exceptional. Cast members are well informed, friendly and eager to answer questions, especially about many of the endangered animals there.

Great to see the animals. Be sure and take the walks. The Everest Roller coaster is not for the timid. The best musical in the whole WWD is the Lion King. Do not miss it.
