Create an itinerary including Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
The largest single Disney theme park in the world, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park dedicates more than 200 hectares (500 acres) to the animal conservation philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney. Divided into seven themed areas, the park blends elements of a theme park and zoo, offering rides through the diverse worlds of wild animals. You can go on a safari through Sahara or navigate a wild river in Asia, surrounded by zebras, lions, tigers, bats, iguanas, giant anteaters, wallabies, and other exotic creatures. Most animals are real, although some are animatronic. The park also offers an adrenaline-junkie's roller coaster, as well as carnival-style rides and games in an area designed to recall the roadside attractions once scattered throughout the country.

  • Another fantastic trip as usual. The new avatar ride is fantastic. The smallest park and could do with another couple rides but also one of my favourites.

  • Magic Kingdom is always magical. Love coming here especially during the end of the year holidays and the new year. So much celebration, great food, fun rides and experiences. If you own a home nearby you can come hang out here everyday just even meet up with friends. Make sure to enjoy the festival of fantasy parade as well as the Happily Ever After and Enchantment fireworks spectacular. I look forward to all the new rides and attractions coming.
  • This park was our second day of our Disney World adventure and it was enjoyable. There was more shade and areas to sit which was a nice change to Magic Kingdom. We were most excited about Pandora and the Avatar ride at this park which did not disappoint. The Pandora area was just amazing and no detail was left out. The ride was so worth the wait, I think we waited 1.5 hours! The rest of animal kingdom was pretty under whelming, but of course compared to they new sections that seems to be true at all parks. The safari was really neat but not a long wait. The Lion king show was good and a great time to sit in air conditioning. Really not anywhere to fill up water bottles.
