“Very detailed, some unexpected scares”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We unfortunately went here when it was 40C+ so spent most of the day dying of the heat. None the less, it was very interesting but the lesser of all the Disney World parks. Smaller kids should perhaps skip the Bug's Life experience - freaked out my jittery 8 year old.

“The BEST Disney Park! The Magic Lives!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Disney has learned from all the others and have now created the best! The whimsical details, the gorgeous landscaping, hidden treasures, the wonderful cast members and of course THE animals. The Flights of Wonder was captivating and humorous. The safari ride went on and on but we still didn't want to get off! The Rhinos were right there, never have been so close to all these animals. Hippos sleeping together underwater, too cute. We didn't have time to do it all and things we did I want to do again (except maybe Everest which really is a big girl rollercoaster!).

“Our favorite Disney Park”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

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.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

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.

“Better than Magic Kingdom!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

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.
