Two of my favorite things rolled into one. Amusement park rides and zoo animals. Take to safari adventure. So many hippos, giraffes and other animals to see. Loved the baby elephant. Watch the Lion King show as it's the best one in my opinion.

You can purchase over time (I think) but a it would be better to actually call Disney to confirm. What I do know is that the tickets become less expensive as you buy more days. So in the long run you would pay more for... More

For animal kingdom we got there at 6:45 AM. Opening was 7am for people staying at resorts. It was very very crowded because of the opening of Avatar.
