Animal kingdom is one of my favorite Disney parks. There is so much to do here! They have great dining locations, rides, shows, and tons of photo opportunities! After you are greeted and enter the park you can take a look at a few animal and talk to Disney wilderness explorers and learn fun animal facts. Once you pass the forest area you will approach the tree of life and this is a great photo opportunity with your family! And they have a few themed shops to your left and right to grab the perfect souvenir! They have a show called bugs life inside the tree of life but if you have little ones that are easy frightened, I would stay away for the show. If you take a right you will be able to go to Dino land and Asia. In Dino land they have a lot to do for kids. They have a dance party, a huge playground with tons of slides and places to climb, and a dig site where you can dig up fossils. Be aware of the dinosaur ride, it can be very rough and is very loud! Then you should head over to Asia, this is where you find Expedition Everest! It is a great roller coaster, it goes backwards I the dark! If you get super hot you can walk over to Cali river rapids and get drenched (not exaggerating you will walk off this ride dripping with water). After you ride those rides head over to Africa and catch a ride on the safari or watch the festival of the lion king. Actually do both because they are both awesome! You will also find the wild Africa trek here which is a 3 hour tour but it costs extra money, you are lead by two guides through the safari and there is so much more that goes into it! It’s about $200 per person! And you have to be 8+ to do it. Then you should travel over to Pandora the World of Avatar! Which is truly jaw dropping oh beautiful! The wait times are crazy but they are so so worth it! Flight of passage is the best ride in Disney at the moment! So do not miss it!!!

Great place, the first ride we went to Primeval whirl was not working at the time and we got stuck on the Kali river Rapids at the very top and had to be escorted off. They did give us passes to go to almost any ride we wanted without having to wait in any line and not having to reserve a fast pass time..... Way better than fast pass. I ENCOURAGE getting the fast pass with any park at Disney. It will save you so much time. I wish they had more rides for kids like the Expedition Everest for kids who don't mind that thrill. But I loved Disney and the heat and walking was not bad at all for me. Awesome place it was worth my kids excitement.

Much more fun than Magic kingdom for our family. If you only have 1 day to go to Disney and have never been to Magic Kingdom, you should absolutely go, but if you've already been, this should definitely be the very next on your list. Pandora is beyond amazing and the Pandora ride might be one of the best in the world. The whole park is fun and relaxed. The staff at the resolution center was beyond helpful and really made our visit special. We had a small issue with tickets to the wrong park and they very graciously helped us fix the problem and enjoy the rest of the day. Amazing Disney service, as you might expect. Great day!

The tropical landscaping and meticulously designed shops made you feel you were in another land. I feel this park offers more educational experiences than some of the other Disney parks. They got to look for " wilderness badges " which they could earn by listening to wilderness scouts at certain stations scattered around the park. This park is much more laid back than Epcot or Magic Kingdom. We had a very nice relaxing day. Food is excellent and the night time river show is awesome!!!

Let me start by saying this place is amazing. Clean friendly well set up and designed to take you on a journey of a lifetime. Cost is high for everything but understandable due to the crazy cost of operating and maintaining such a place. The overall cost would not be an issue if you got to enjoy what they had to offer. The park is so busy all the time that you wait in hour to 2 hour long lines to enjoy 10 min of what they offer. You wait because what they offer is amazing from the shows to rides everything is well set up and breathtaking. But once you get done you realize the next step is another hour wait. Not sure how they would ever improve this but it takes away from the overall experience for sure. The staff is AMAZING!!!! Friendly helpful organized I could go on and on they are just great to everyone. We were told that it's a place you have to go if you have never experienced it but you won't go back. I now understand why everyone says it and I agree. If you never have been with the kids suck it up spend the money and make the trip just know what your signing up for.
