Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Florida Guide > Disney Parks

Whether you’re a big kid or a little one, and a theme park holiday is one for you, a visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom has to be a priority during your trip to Orlando. Animal Kingdom really does cater for all ages with thrilling rides, amazing attractions and a majestic nature which takes hold of you and certainly provides a cultural experience for you and your children and family.

The park is unique in the way it incorporates the best of natural beauty and opportunity with the thrilling, commercial theme park experience and even if it is just one visit in a lifetime, it certainly is worth it. The very best piece of advice for Animal Kingdom trekkers is to get their early. Animal Kingdom opens the earliest of all the parks to give you the opportunity to catch the animals before it gets too hot, so don’t waste your chance to get a glimpse of these wonderful animals! From experience doing the ‘Kilimanjaro Safari’ first sets you up nicely for the rest of the day with a whole new exciting frontier to explore. The animals are housed in very natural looking habitats and Disney have very cleverly put safety barriers invisibly in place so it looks as though the animals are roaming free.

Options are open to you throughout the day as you can choose to tackle each of the four ‘lands’ as you go round or you can hop between the two. Suitably named, ‘Africa’, ‘Asia’, ‘Dinoland’ and ‘Discoveryland’ all four offer exciting and varied experiences for all the family. Disney really does outdo itself with this park mixing the classic ‘Kali River Rapids’ with the new and exhilarating ‘Expedition Everest’. ‘Dinoland’ offers a mixture of thrills and bumps in an epic journey around the Jurassic age, whilst Africa sees the unique markets and safaris. If it’s a show you’re after, then such performances as ‘The Festival of the Lion King’ are offered at Camp Minnie Mickey.

Food is probably the shortcoming of the park with limited places for a proper meal but with a big breakfast and lots of snack food offered at Animal Kingdom, you should be sustained until the park closes in the evening.

Overall Disney has expressed an exciting Theme Park which uses all of the Disney Magic. A must try Theme Park and who knows, you might love it so much you come back year after year.
