I went to the Animal Kingdom for the very first time last August when we brought our kids to Disney World for the first time. I didn’t know what to expect. I had not heard a lot about the Animal Kingdom and in fact I had not even bothered to go there on previous trips. So, needless to say that when we finally did go, I was blown away. I highly recommend making this part of your trip. This is a newer part of Disney so it has some really amazing rides. Mt. Everest is an awesome roller coaster!
Animal Kingdom tips:
- Fast passes and rider switch cards are available on five of the rides.
- It is often much quicker to meet the characters at this park. I am not sure why, but every time we have tried it has been quite quick. This is the place to meet Tiger, Pooh, and Eeyore because the line is always short!
The only other big ride in dino land is the Primo Whirl. This is a good ride and has a height requirement on it. It was a little too rough for me and after a few trips here I now skip this ride, because I don’t like getting banged around that much!
You cannot hang out in Dino land without making some time for the Boneyard. This is a massive playground. There is an area where you can dig for bones, slides, tunnels, climbing and more!
Be sure to go on the Safari and see all of the animals, including elephants, zebras, and more.
There is a walk you can go on and look at animals like monkeys, tigers and more.The Animal Kingdom also has its own parade. It is very unique and different then the ones in the other parks. The parade is usually at 3 PM everyday.
