This park is one of the most unique theme parks you'll ever go to. It's got natural and some man made beauty with wild animals, exotic plants, water displays, the tree of life is fascinating to look at to find the animals carved within it and a snow-capped mountain. The themed lands are fantastic and there's lots of nice shaded... More

Disney's Animal Kingdom was the highlight of our recent trip to Disney World in Orlando. Having never been to this particular park we made this a priority and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere felt authentic, the scenery was excellent and it had some of the best attractions of any of the Disney Parks. Specifically, the Safari, the Everest Experience... More

Was a good selection on a hot day as there is plenty of shade there. Did the Safari ride first during the coolest time of the day. Happy with the animals we saw. Only wish we had spent less time taking pictures and more time enjoying the ride.

I was so excited to go here as it was my first time. You do not need an entire day here. You can see most of the park in 1/2 a day. I think it is way too expensive for what you get. The park is relatively small and I thought this would be more like a zoo. There are... More

So, of the four Disney parks in the area, this is really good as it has lots to see and experience... good rides, lots of food choices.. the safari is the best as you see amazing animals, and show of the shows are really well done.

This park is an amazing park and it makes you really think you are in the most magical place on earth. When we went all of the line wait times were under 20 minutes and my whole family had a blast. Would highly recommend staying to see the tree of lights at night.

AK has some good shows and a couple of good rides but it just isnt one of my favorite parks. Guess I am just not a big animal person or that big into zoo's no matter how well done. It is interesting to walk around and Expedition Everest is a good ride. Other than that the Lion King show is... More

Recently went again to Animal Kingdom to see the awesome animals. We were able to get on the Kilimanjaro Safari ride which was awesome. We also as Passholders got a sneak peak of the new Pandora section and cannot wait to go back. Disney did a fantastic job with the setting, landscaping, architecture, etc. There is a very nice counter... More

We went to Animal Kingdom anticipating a "Disney" type of event. Honestly, the park looks a bit in need of repair and found it unusual to not have any benches and or very limited places to go that are air-conditioned. Both of us enjoyed the safari ride and information was great. Other than that things like the train to no-where... More

I'm SINCERELY hoping that our awful experience was due to it being Mother's Day weekend. I've heard, on our flight back from Disney to St. Louis (the plane didn't have 1 empty seat and everywhere I turned I could hear conversations saying they'd never be back) that you should never go on Mother's Day weekend. Nowhere in our wildest dreams... More
