Such a fantastic park! Everest was amazing. River rapids were refreshing. Lion King and Finding Nemo shows were incredible. Dinosaur ride was so much fun. And finish off the night with the mind blowing River of Lights show!

Well, maybe not bears. The Jungle Safari is not to be missed. Informative guides, many species to see.

Even if you're not an animal lover, this is a great place. So interesting to see the animals in a habitat natural to them. They're all clean and well cared for. Not as exciting as other parks but nice in it's own way. Would go again

Animal Kingdom is one of our favorite stops at Disney! Don't be fooled. It is not a zoo. It's a unique blend of theme park, nature, animal exhibits, delicious dining, theatrical shows and so much more. Grab a map as you enter so you don't miss any of the terrific animal exhibits. There are many different trails to take and... More

We have older kids, so they love to visit this park. The rides that are available are awesome. the new River of Lights was very nice, a good way to end the day. Food is too expensive, not enough water fountains, or shade, Disney really needs to work on putting in shady spots for a rest, or to let a... More

I think that Animal Kingdom is my favourite park after Magic Kingdom. I loved seeing all the animals and feeling like I was in different countries. My favourite part of Animal Kingdom was the The Festival of the Lion King, I have seen Lion King the musical in London which I think is amazing but there was something about this... More

This was for the most part a disappointment. Only worth going if you have a super great deal on admission. The Bug ride was/is closed for renovations. Bottom line, skip this place.

This was my 11 yr old daughters favorite out of the whole week and all the attractions. It was a quick trip from Port Orleans, French Quarter by Bus. She loved all the animals, the Kali River wet water ride...we highly recommend wearing a poncho as your butts and feet will get wet. The Safari trip was exciting...got so upclose... More

We love Animal kingdom. Finding Nemo and Festival of the Lion King are FABULOUS. Do the Safari. Try to get in early in the day before it gets hot. They allow early entry to Rivers of Life so you can get in if you don't get a fast pass if you are willing to hang out and hold your spot.... More

The Animal Kingdom is an awesome spot. It was one of our favourite Disney parks. The Kilimanjaro safari was well worth the wait and Kali River Rapids were so much fun. Highly recommend this park.
