My top 5 things to see at Animal Kingdom

30 Mar

You all know that my fave Disney Park is Animal Kingdom. It is full of attractions, adventures and entertainment that reflect Walt Disney’s dedication to nature and conservation. It is home to more than 1,700 animals from 250 species and sprawling across 500 acres of lush landscape, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park is the largest animal-themed park in the world!

So here are my top 5 things to do at Animal Kingdom:

1. Kilimanjaro Safaris

This was one of the highlights of my day at Animal Kingdom. I think it helped that our driver was particularly good and made it a great experience for all! You get the opportunity to witness the exotic animals of Africa up as you ride in a rugged open-sided safari vehicle.

2. Expedition Everest

This is a great fun, thrill-seeking ride, which I happily went on over and over again! It is a high-altitude, high-speed roller coaster train with daring drops, hairpin turns and a close encounter with the inhospitable inhabitant of the Forbidden Mountain: the infamous Yeti.

3. Festival of the Lion King

Festival of the Lion King, is a scheduled 30-minute big-as-Broadway musical-stage show based on The Lion King movie. It really is an amazing show full of extremely talented performers.

4. Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade

Disney puts on a great parade and this is yet another example! Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade features popular Disney Characters, elaborate animal puppets, stiltwalkers, drummers, safari vehicles, and nearly 60 Cast Members.

5. Kali River Rapids

I got soaked on this – so make sure you go on a hot day! You ride on a raft down the Chakranadi River through an Asian rainforest. First, ascend 90 feet past picturesque, lush jungle and jasmine-scented mists, then drop into gushing geysers and drift under refreshing waterfalls.

As I said in my last post about Magic Kingdom – there is so many fun things to do at Animal Kingdom it is difficult to choose just 5 things. Below are some of the other things that I loved and you really shouldn’t miss:


This ride takes you back in time – 65 million years to be exact! You are on a mission to capture a mild-mannered dinosaur without getting caught in the jaws of the angry, carnivorous and hungry Carnotaurus. Then you have just 60 seconds to escape!

It’s Tough to be a Bug

This is a great family fun 3D movie where guests put on a pair of Bug-Eye glasses and settle down for a show hosted by the ant Flik from Disney·Pixar’s A Bug’s Life.

Finding Nemo The Musical

Finding Nemo – The Musical, is a scheduled 30-minute musical-theater adaptation of Disney·Pixar’s movie, Finding Nemo, that will amaze audiences of all ages.

That’s all from me – next post will be my top things to do at Epcot!
