The largest single Disney theme park in the world, Disney's Animal Kingdom dedicates more than 200 hectares (500 acres) to the animal conservation philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney. Divided into seven themed areas, the park blends elements of a theme park and zoo, offering rides through the diverse worlds of wild animals. You can go on a safari through Sahara or navigate a wild river in Asia, surrounded by zebras, lions, tigers, bats, iguanas, giant anteaters, wallabies, and other exotic creatures. Most animals are real, although some are animatronic. The park also offers an adrenaline-junkie's roller coaster, as well as carnival-style rides and games in an area designed to recall the roadside attractions once scattered throughout the country.

Disney's Animal Kingdom reviews
I was excited to visit mostly for Pandora. The river ride was not worth the wait. I couldn't believe how short it was after that long wait. I was disappointed, however, the sky ride was the best ride.... more »
Animal Kingdom is a park mostly aimed for people who love animals more than anything. In my opinion, Expedition Everest is the best ride in the entire park, though Avatar is super fun too. more »
Animal Kingdom was beautiful looking. Everything was nice for the most part, but I wish there had been more animals to see and it was a bit hard to find a lot of them. Also a lot of the restaurants required reservations, so if you didn't have one you either had to try to find a table in some shade or eat in the hot sun. The safari ride was probably my favorite ride. I wish there had been more rides. Overall pretty great experience, though.
One of fav roller coasters - Expedition Everest!
