Love going here

This park compared to Disney others is probably the best for getting away from the crowds. It also has some good rides.

The animals have huge expanses of land and are perfectly cared for. There are opportunities to go on rides, to watch shows...all the usual Disney efficiency always present. The Lion King show is fantastic! There is not much for little ones, but, they can spend some time at the Dr Zeu's world.

Of the 4 parks at disney world this one is ranked #3 on my list because it just doesn't have that many noteworthy rides but we still always have to visit animal kingdom just for the expedition Everest ride! I think it is the most exciting ride in any of the Disney world parks. The park is pretty awesome too... More

View good disney park with a mix of rides and animals. The individual zones are good representations of Africa and Asia.

FastPasses are a must if you are going to ride the popular rides like the Safaris, Expedition Everest, or the Kali River Rapids. Beware if you get motion sick - Everest will make you have to sit down after as it goes backwards in complete darkness for a pretty good distance. My 7 year old loved it though - me... More

This is a super theme park. We loved it. The boys did the safari - and a couple of the other rides - and the Mum enjoyed walking and viewing and the shows about bugs, and the lion king. Really enjoyed this.

The Kilimanjaro animal safari gets better and better. Never the same thing twice! I would definitely recommend taking the safari just before dusk to see the most activity. And of course, Expedition Everest is always good for a scare. The River of Light show is not worth all the hype. Skip it.
