“Once you've been on Everest go home”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Beautifully set out park, loads to look at but for us we found it a tad boring and a bit hard to navigate round!
Everest is a great ride and the safari ride is also good but this park for us lacked atmosphere, which Disney are usually very good at, we literally stayed for the morning and park hopped to Hollywood studios. Best thing about park hopping is that once you've paid to park in a Disney car park that ticket is valid in the next car park too, we thought that was great and we took great advantage of our 14 dollar parking on a few Disney days out.

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The safari was the best thing here. Dinoland was quite disappointing. Technology is really missing from this park. If you enjoy a simple day at the zoo, you will enjoy this. I expected more.

“My favorite Disney park”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Mellow and pretty with a host of wonderful animals to see, shows to watch and rides to enjoy. this is the most engaging of the parks, in my opinion. Good for young and old, male or female, it has a certain atmosphere that is unchallenged by the other Walt Disney World attractions.

It feels like being on a real safari at times and is far better than Busch gardens. Beautifully kept and landscaped with some great attractions, shows and rides.

“Disney's Overdone Zoo”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

As Disney's nature is, they must over do everything. I felt that the park was neat, but wasn't AMAZING. It was just a zoo too me with a few attractions. I will admit though... that the shows here were pretty good.
