When it comes to Walt Disney World Resort, each theme park has something different to offer Guests.
Magic Kingdom is the undeniable classic, popular option, with classic rides and huge crowds. EPCOT is known for fun festivals, limitless food and drink options, and fabulous shows. Hollywood Studios is home to areas like Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
But Animal Kingdom is the Disney Park for the Guests who are wild at heart!
Whether you’re an animal activist, a Wilderness Explorer, or an animal enthusiast, this Disney Park has it all.
There are exciting attractions like Expedition Everest, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Kali River Rapids. But there are also self-guided tours where Guests can view live animals, such as different trails along Discovery Island and the Maharajah Jungle Trek.
For viewers who love live entertainment, Animal Kingdom also offers shows such as the Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo: The Big Blue…and Beyond!
But the signature attraction of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is none other than Kilimanjaro Safaris, which gives Guests an open-aired tour through the Harambe Wildlife Reserve.
This area is home to the Disney Park’s African animals, such as zebras, giraffes, lions, hippos, elephants, and more! With so many amazing animals, you’d think that the Walt Disney World animal caretakers may let important animal milestones slip through the cracks. But not at Animal Kingdom!
