The last time I visited Animal Kingdom was close to 16 years ago. For some reason life had kept me from going there. However, After visiting it as part of the Zootopia Event a couple of weeks ago I was blown away at this amazing Theme park! I didn’t just see it through the eyes of an adult but I realized how magical this phenomenal place is for children as well.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom isn’t just a theme park where you got on rides and have a wonderful time, it’s truly a learning experience around every corner. This Park boasts 2,000 animals across 300 species, the park reflects Walt Disney’s dedication to conservation and is committed to animal care, education and research. You will be able to explore 6 enthralling lands: Oasis, Discovery Island, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and DinoLand, U.S.A. areas.
There’s so much to see and do and explore you’ll probably need more than one day to fully appreciate all the amazing things this park has to offer. You’ll instantly be transported to the beauty of various lands at Animal Kingdom and the rich culture they have.
But one of the most awe inspiring things is the stewardship of the land that is promoted through this park. It’s a continuous lesson in leaving this planet in a better state than you found it.
Animal Kingdom is about having you come close to the most amazing animals and understanding so many things about them. During the Kilimanjaro Safari you’ll be able to see some of the most amazing animals up close and personal within the safety of your Safari Truck.
You’ll be amazed at all the wild encounters you’ll have on this ride.
If you think you’re going in for just a theme park or just a zoo you’re in for a huge surprise. There’s also some amazing culinary experiences to be had. Like the Yak & Yeti. A delicious dinning experience that grabs a hold of the best dishes in Asia and brings it to you in a delicious setting.
There are attractions, Musical entertainment and so many different experience as Animal Kingdom. One favorite of ours was the Festival of The Lion King a stage show that will have you on the edge of your seat with excitement and awe.
Filled with some of the memorable characters and some great new friends ready to show you a good time.
This is just one of the many stage shows and experiences you will be able to experience at the Animal Kingdom.
While there, Don’t forget to check out Expedition Everest. A wild roller coaster that will bring you face to face with the scary Yeti while still staying safely in Florida 🙂 Check out the fun video below that we took while there.

It sounds amazing to go visit there. I didn’t know that Florida’s Disney was so different from California’s Disney, I can’t wait to go!
I love it there it’s one of my favorite parks. So relaxing as far as Disney parks go.
Jessica Higgins says
I went to AK for the first time ever a couple weeks ago! It was so great, I loved the different pace from the other parks!
Looks like you had an amazing time!! 🙂
Amy Amerson says
It’s crazy, but I’ve never been to any Disney parks, and I’ve lived a couple hours away from here for 9 years! This made me really want to go even more. Looks awesome and mind blowing!
Dandi D says
This looks so fun and I think my whole family would enjoy it!

I would love to go to the animal kingdom. I love animals
I’m surprised I haven’t heard much about this before, it sounds like a great time to have with the family. If it’s affordable, it may make it onto our to-do list.
Elizabeth Johnson says
I have never been to Walt Disney World I have heard of the animal kingdom once before and do not know what it’s like it will be an adventure to visit Walt Disney World and the animal kingdom I bet it’s a blast and wild

I can’t wait to take my grandchildren to Animal Kingdom. It has been 14 years since I took my children. Zootopia looks to be another Disney hit!
Ashley Chassereau Parks says
The stage shows look like they would be an amazing experience! I wish I was relaxed as that gorilla looks! Lol

I still have photos from our family vacation there as kids. My daughter is such an animal lover, I can’t wait to take her.
Marie Morgan says
My baby is only 2 months old and we can’t wait to take her here and share this awesome memory we had as kids with her! Plus it’s fun for us adults too!
Amy Hall says
Thanks for the glimpse inside. Only been to Disney once and we didn’t make it to Animal Kingdom since I’d heard it was miserable in the summer. Hoping to go next time, though!
Wow, it looks like so much fun! Whenever we visit a city we try and visit their zoo if they have one… this is like a zoo x10! 🙂
My 3 year old would LOVE this. He is all about the Lion King right now & his favourite “teddy” is a giraffe. We’ll have to look into this.
Sandy Cain says
I’ve never been there, but I would love to go! What a blessing that all these animals are living in a good habitat, instead of locked in tiny cages like I’ve seen. I once saw 3 grown tigers, in a little cell, pacing pace and forth – it was heartbreaking.
Alicia Hewitt says
Both my daughter, and I would love to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom!! It looks like so much fun!
Deborah D says
I would love to visit someday.
