“better than Magic Kingdom!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

With all the hype surrounding Magic Kingdom;we were so excited to have the little ones meet the characters etc..It was so big and overwhelming, we left feeling we missed so much. Animal Kingdom was much more low key but the kids met Mickey and Minnie, had their faces painted and got to experience so much more!

“Always a Great Experience”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

The only negative about this park is that it does not accomodate crowds very well. Compared to Epcot, the walking areas are narrow and even with a "moderate" amount of people can appear to be jammed up. This is particularly true of the "Africa" area where a number of things converge. Well worth doing things include the following: Expedition Everest (get a fast pass), Kali River Rapids (bring a change of clothing or a poncho because you will be drenched), Kilimanjaro Safari (you usually see animals and it is longer than most Disney "rides") and the Festival of the Lion King (might be the best show outside of Hollywood Studios - colorful and fun).

“Great park for all ages”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I love Animal Kingdom, there's something for everyone. The animal attractions are spectacular. And in the summertime it's actually pretty cool here because of all the vegetation. Great restaurants as well. The full service restaurant in Asia has great food and a nice bar when you want to take a break.

“not your typical zoo!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We loved animal kingdom. I am not a big zoo person, as I believe they are cruel to the animals being put in small cages. But this place was amazing. Disney has changed the definition of a zoo. We will never be able to visit a zoo anywhere else now. and of course all the rides were a bonus. the Epedition Everest & Dinosaur were our favorites.
