Magic Kingdom is the most popular Park with the most family-friendly offerings. Younger audiences obviously adore Magic Kingdom because it’s truly the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Hollywood Studios is arguably the most thrilling Disney Park due to the thrill rides. It’s also home to immersive areas such as Toy Story Land and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

However, Animal Kingdom is easily the wildest Disney Park out of the bunch!

Animal Kingdom is home to attractions such as Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Avatar Flight of Passage, DINOSAUR, and Kilimanjaro Safaris. The Disney Park also offers many exciting opportunities to view animals, such as hidden alcoves, singular exhibits, and walking trails.

But one of the best ways to view the animals is by riding the Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction.

In this video, we can see the powerful lioness as she patrols her territory, and hear her mighty roars as she warns hypothetical lions nearby to beware of trespassing.

Lions and lionesses are most active at dusk and dawn. If you’re trying to see the lions while they’re active, the best times to ride Kilimanjaro Safaris are right after the Park opens and right before the sun goes down.
