This was our favorite park from our visit to Disney. We loved the atmosphere with live music and dancers in the streets, lots of vegetarian food options, and great animal and water rides. We loved the safari (went twice) and the Kali river rapids. On the safari we had great looks at lots of animals and the guides were terrific. There was also a beautiful walk in the Asia section that our 6 year old son enjoyed guiding us on. Our only disappointment was that the parade was rained out. I wish we could have spent another day - it was a perfect atmosphere for our family.

It's a lovely place and the best ride is mount everest, you must try it. Only downsides to this park is not enough places to eat and need more rides.

Loved, loved, loved Animal Kingdom. It was busy but didn't feel cramped like Magic Kingdom. A shaded spot was easily found anywhere on the property. The tour bus driver on the safari was great! We had no lineups at any of the attractions and were able to cover the entire park in just one day.

Catches the magic whilst educating the kids with a nice atmosphere. This was my favourite park. Not too big and easy to get round. The Lion King show was excellent as was the safari. But what made it was the educational areas which was pitched at the right pace for kids. They really enjoyed visiting the areas in each part of the park to get stamps and become part of a club protecting animals. Anyone who has been to Paris park will notice a similar feel to this park. Don't miss the bird show and get your fast pass on Everest! An outstanding run away train type ride with a twist. It has really been thought out well. Good choice and quality of food and the atmosphere at night with bands representative of each continent at night was great. Don't skip this park!

This feels like one of the smallest parks, but is actually the largest, great for a chill out day. Before entering the park look to the left, you will see the RainForest Cafe entrance, to the right of this are waterfalls and gardens that you can enjoy without entering the parks (yes, it's free, and there's a gift shop), these waterfalls are awesome! The park is dominated by the huge Mount Everest, a thrilling ride not for the faint hearted. Khali River rapids is our favourite ride here but seems to have been shortened we remember it meandering through tropical rainforests before the plunge into the rapids. The Jingle Jungle Parade at 3.45 each day is delightful, plenty of good vantage points, do take your cam corder as the visuals and music are worth recording you will want to see this over and over again. The Jungle Safari is a must and you will be surprised at the amount of animals you encounter, Disney have removed the part of the trip that referred to poachers - good one Disney, but what the posters in the waiting area ?
