There is nothing to dislike about Animal Kingdom. You will definitely get wet on the water ride so be prepared with a poncho.
The grandkiddos loved the roller coaster and the 3-d shows are fantastic..

“Don't miss these”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Don't miss the safari ride at Animal Kingdom. We were able to see all of the animals up close. The drivers were awesome pointing out all of the animals and allowing for pictures. The kids were shocked at how close we were able to get to the animals in their natural habitat.
We also saw the Lion King show and it was impressive. Must sees on your tour.

Animal Kingdom is fun, but as my son liked to say, it has "weather systems all it's own." The dense foliage makes it difficult to find a breeze, and it seems there is more heat absorbing asphalt here than cement found in other parks. My suggestion is go early and leave after lunch. This review should not be seen as detracting for the park's attractions, which we truly enjoyed.

“Not an all-day park”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

As much as I hate to say it, there aren't enough attractions to make AK an all-day park. If you arrive early enough, you can finish the main attractions by early afternoon. Plus, there are not as many good restaurants as there are at the other parks. Wish they could add a few more things to this park.

“Just OK”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

It was hot and very crowded- which we expected on an afternoon in August. Suggest going in cooler or rainier weather - none of the animals were active for the safari, it was buggy and our family was definitely worn out from the previous days of touring the World! When we return we will hit AK earlier in our vacation!
