8 Rookie Mistakes People Make at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World

8. Show Up Late

It’s true that Disney’s Animal Kingdom has only a few “E ticket” attractions. But that means lines for attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris, Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, and Dinosaur get quite long early in the day. You can’t walk in with a Fastpass+ for all four of these attractions, so if you want to experience all of them, your best bet is to arrive early and get in line for the attraction that you don’t have the Fastpass for. You’ll be able to enjoy lower crowds and temperatures if you arrive early!
