“The best time to go; a chilly day in January!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We usually avoid this place as the walkways are narrow and crowded. Today, no lines! The lines are usually longer that posted times. We used the Fast Pass Plus this time. All 3 attractions had no wait so the fast pass was not needed but we entered that way anyway.. We went on the safari ride, and the fast pass merge is far away from the ride. The wait was about 10 minutes. The safari was GREAT! we stopped right next to the black rinos. The drive was not one of those want to be comedians. he pointed out and named the wildlife with perfection. The 3D movie was a hit with the kids, and us too. the Bird show was amazing, except for the comedian. We had a late lunch at the yack and Yenti. This restruant is part of the Landry Group, aand the food shows that. I had the Sweet and Sour chicken with fresh peppers, pineapple and lots of tender lightly coated chicken. My guest had the salmon. large portion but a more well don that they liked it.
We asked the server to hold the main dish until out apps were finished, and she did. I liked that! The parade was good and we stood right at the gate where it starts. That is the best viewing area as it is close to the exit if this is the end of your day as ours was. So go early and wear a sweatshirt as you will need it on a cool day.

“One of our favorites!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

The Safari ride is by far the best. So many different animals to see. An amazing transformation from 5 years ago. The Yeti is an awesome coaster. And the monkeys can entertain for hours!

“Loved everest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

This park is a tie for one of my family's favorite. The Africa ride is just like what you would expect to see in Africa. But the best ride in the park was by far the Everest ride.

“Much more than seeing animal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

There is so much more than just seen animals at the Animal Kingdom.
The atractions are great! The musical with Nemo and friends is great, and the Flights of Wonder bird show is awesome!!
Of course seeing the animals is great, specially if can catch a cast member talking about them while you watch them.
The Expedition Everest is one of my favorite rides of all the parks.
The whole Dinoland area is fun, and the safari is great if you do not plan on going to Africa to soon.
