“Great park for kids who love nature and animals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Loves the "Wilderness Explorers" book for kids. Free, educational, and fun for my kids (8 & 5.) They earn badges (stickers) for each part of the park they explore (themed after the movie "Up.") Kids could not complete all of the activities in the one day we spent at Animal Kingdom, but they loved every second of the park.

You will really think you are in Africa or Asia. Lots of exotic animals to see and fun rides. Beautiful grounds to walk around in.

“Great Park for the kids as well as adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Once in the park, you will either have to go on the Safari first or on Mt Everest.
The animals get fed in the morning so you will have a better chance to see them then.
Mt Everest will be there all day so make a choice to suit your day.
While there, try the Tusker House. Great food and you can have your picture taken with the characters.
The parade is also very good.
Don't miss the Lion King show, it is unbelievable. The singing and the show itself is amazing.
The Bugs Life show is so much fun. Also the Dinosaur ride is good, but it can be pretty scary for the kids, plan accordingly.
Most of all have a great time.

“Disabled persons worse nightlmare!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

The attractions were great with only a few issues with entering and exiting using a evc. HOWEVER the staff that ran the wheelchair/stroller rental (Amanda) Was appalling! Made fun of me being a disabled person behind my back in front of another customer (my friend I was with) I was so upset over the whole experience I will never go back to that place. The supervisor assured us that the situation would be corrected but the damage is done.; How is someone working with disabled people as a customer be allowed to continue to belittle and degrade them? NOT ACCEPTABLE!

“The rhythm of one.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Love this place. Never really gets old. Why! The park is alive. Reminds us that no matter who we interact with in the world, we are all people sharing this beautiful world God has given us to enjoy. He created a rhythm and order of things. The song in the parade says the Rhythm of One. It's amazing what happens when we all stay instep with His rhythm. Beautiful park, exhibits, people in different places and so much more. Take it all in with a relaxing stroll throughout the day. Celebrate every part of this place. It's not really a theme park as much as an experience. Make the most of it and smile!
