I really enjoyed the mix of animals and rides both here and at Busch Gardens although this one is definitely aimed at a younger audience.

We went on the "safari" first thing which was a good idea as most of the animals were up and about at that time. When we went on again later in the day many more of them were just lying around. Difficult to get good photos from the safari truck as it bounces around so much, but there are other animals to see in the park where you won't be moving around as much and can get some better photos.

Next we headed over to Expedition Everest which was good fun. Hardly any queue at all too so we went on it twice in a row, waiting another couple of trains to get on the front row the second time. Second best roller-coaster at Disney in my opinion.

Some other things that stood out were the Bug's Life 3D show and the Lion King musical show.

We had lunch at the BBQ and the ribs I had were really very good, probably the best food we had in a Park with the exception of Epcot.

This park was ok but much prefer magic kingdom and Hollywood studios everything is very spread out and when it is hot seems to be not much shade and with young children this is very difficult doubt would visit again- if you are going definitely go to see 3d bugs life show my kids loved it (gets very dark in parts some little ones may find scary)

I didn't expect so much about Animal Kingdom. Many people said it was boring. But I adore it. It's HUGE, so bring strollers even if your kids are over 5. The Everest is my favorite Disney coaster. And we enjoyed so much the Kilimanjaro Safari. The Flame Tree BBQ was delicious and the portions was big enough to share. And try the Cupcakes from Kusafiri. So beautiful! that is a shame to grab a bite (but again...share...I'll bet you can't eat one for yourself)

The park is so beautiful! And the animals are awesome, ant it was so cool so see them up close, but its kind of not much going on after you done the "safari"
I liked the dinosaurs ride, and took that alot..but that was the only thing i liked in there. the others enjoyed mount everest:)
If i would be so lucky to visit disney world again, i would not visit animal kingdom.
