Disney's Animal Kingdom, Orlando

4.0
#6 of 9,437 in Things to do in Florida
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.

  • If I had it to do again I’d skip Animal Kingdom. There aren’t many rides and with the way fast passes are allotted if you aren’t staying in a Disney Resort you can forget about getting on the Flight.....  more »
  • The place was great and had more to do than I expected. Take the safari and see the real wild animals. The kids (ages 2 and 7) were amazed and it was enjoyable to see their excitment.  more »
