My sons favorite park. He loves all things dinosaur and animals so this park is great for him. My daughter enjoys it too! You can definitely start and end your day in this park so don't shorten the experience by thinking you can get by on a half day here. Even the more kid friendly rides are fun!

I travel to Orlando to work. However in May 2014 I took my family with me. My two kids were 14 and 12 at the time and there favorite park was Aminal kingdom. They loved the Roller Coaster as shown. The animal safaree was also good. I did not go to all the parks but personally found Epcot to be... More

Although WDW's Magic Kingdom will always hold a special place in my heart, WDW Animal Kingdom is my favorite Disney Park. The rides are superior.

For the price we paid to visit Disney, we definitely didn't expect to be yelled at and treated rudely by the workers here. This is the worst of all of the Disney parks. It has some neat shows and rides, but we won't waste our money coming here again, way too much to see at the other Disney attractions! The... More

Disney World is a place that prides itself in making it's customers forget they are in the middle of Florida. Animal Kingdom isn't an exception. From the moment you walk off the parking lot tram and through the gates, you feel as if you've been transported into a jungle. You'll visit China and Africa and Everest within Disney's largest park.... More

Normally I'm not a huge fan of the zoo, but at Animal Kingdom, it's so much more than seeing animals! Get your photo taken by the Tree of Life at the heart of the park. I don't do rollercoasters but people seemed to love Expedition Everest. I didn't get a FastPass+ for the Lion King show, so I didn't have... More

The park is split up into different areas- each with it's own star attraction. The kilimanjaro safari is well worth the wait- even if the queues are long. Fast pass the Kali river rapids for a welcome cool down. Don't dismiss the It's tough to be a bug 3d show- it may be old but it is still pretty good.... More
