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

3. Not Explore the Park

This park was designed for exploring! There are little trails all over Discovery Island with animals to see, like anteaters and parrots. And don’t forget about Pangani Forest Trail and Maharaja Jungle Trek. That’s where you’ll see gorillas (Pangani) and tigers (Maharaja) and many other animals! These are both walk through attractions so you can go at your own pace. Take time to savor the details and watch the animals.
