We went there 1 week prior to the opening of their new attraction called Pandora, so I will have to review that later. The Lion King show is fantastic! Expedition Everest might be one of the coolest roller coasters ever. This park closes early, so go early.

We had a wonderful driver for the safari excursion. He pointed out many animals and seemed to really enjoy his job. He also spoke clearly so you could understand him. Many of the announcements are made so quickly and in "rote" fashion that they are impossible to understand. As polished as everything else connected with Disney is they really need... More

The we liked almost everything about the Animal Kingdom. Africa with Kilimanjaro Safari should not be missed. The Kali River Rapids was not worth the effort. Don't wast the time that you could use on something else.

You will want to take a full day to be able to experience this park. There is so much to see and do and it is a park for all ages. I really enjoyed the roller coaster ride "Mt Everest". Make sure to walk all of the trails to see as much as you can.

Animal Kingdom, where do i start. Pandora opens in 6 days time. If you want a varied day at a slower pace this is for you. Rides, Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Journey to Extinction etc, Safari, and if you really want to connect with nature, try the Caring for Giants backstage tour. A good day for all the family.

It has it's moments but is totally missable giving the packed schedule one usually has when visiting Florida. I found the attractions fleeting and the park was poorly designed in comparison to the others. However, i did visit before Pandora opened.

This was my fourth visit to the Animal Kingdom and it is firmly my second favourite of the Disney parks. It certainly is the park with the best theming, particularly when walking through Africa and Asia Disney have done a great job and making it look as authentic as possible. Its also a smaller park that the Magic Kingdom and... More

The "Tree of Life" is amazing as is the theatrical show "The Festival of the Lion King" performed at the new Harambe Theater. The Kilimanjaro Safari Expedition was good, although we had a 60 minute wait to see it.Dinoland is a newer addition to Animal Kingdom with a thrill ride DINOSAUR. Do not go on this ride if you suffer... More

Disney is expensive but worth every penny. The experience is just worth it. Animal Kingdom is an amazing park, enough to cater all ages. The Expedition roller coaster was thrilling...so good I went on twice. The animal shows are great and relaxing. They also had shows and entertainment all around.
