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

2. Not Apply Sunscreen

Yeah, there are a lot of trees at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But for the love of all that is good, wear sunscreen! You will still get burnt in this park. In fact, this is the park where I usually get sunburned, because I too fall into that “it’s shady here” trap! And while you’re at it, drink some water! Sunburns and dehydration will put a huge damper on your vacation.
