  1148   reviews
Disney's Animal Kingdom is the fourth of four theme parks built at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, opened on Earth Day, April 22, 1998. It is the largest single Disney theme park in the world, covering 580 acres (235 ha), and is also the first Disney theme park to be themed entirely around animal conservation, a philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney himself. Disney's Animal Kingdom is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, meaning they have met or exceeded the standards in education, conservation, and research. In 2011, the park hosted approximately 9.8 million guests, ranking it the fourth-most visited amusement park in the United States and seventh-most visited in the world.
The park is represented by The Tree of Life, a sculpted 145 feet (44 m), 50-foot-wide (15 m) artificial tree.

Favourite Attraction : Avatar Flight of Passage

Review : Avatar is a brilliant experience....something needs to be considered to manage the queues....we had to get to the park at 7.30am to guarantee getting on the ride at opening which means we couldn''t go on Navi river as it was already 1.5 hours by the time we got off Avatar.

Favourite Attraction : Kilimanjaro Safaris® Expedition

Review : Disney''s best park by a long way, and the only one that can give Universal a run for it''s money. The safari was excellent as was Expedition Everest, Festival of the Lion King and Kali River Rapids. Excellent park. Didn''t eat in the park, Disney snacks are poor quality and value, but we did eat in The Rainforest Cafe which was superb!

Theme Park Tip : Use your Fast passes wisely try to book Avatar as people actually queue for this ride before the park opens! I would recommend you book 3 rides out of Everest, Safari, Rapids and Avatar for fast pass access if you can.
