Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

About Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

Disney storytelling comes to life in a kingdom brimming with fun, wonder and adventure – not to mention thousands of animals! Join together with your circle of loved ones to savor thrilling attractions, live shows, the majesty of nature and fascinating animals. Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom can encounter more than 1,700 animals across 250 species, including lions, tigers, giraffes, zebra, apes and more. Explore seven intriguing lands such as Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and Dinoland, U.S.A. Much more than a zoo, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is filled with exotic animals, amazing adventures, fun-filled rides and attractions, and even spectacular Broadway-style shows. But the newest adventure is Pandora – The World of Avatar. Experience this exotic and mesmerizing world where you can fly on the back of a mountain banshee, journey deep into a bioluminescent rainforest or hike amid floating mountains. Come face-to-face with a T-Rex on the Dinosaur ride. Meet a giant Yeta on the thrilling coaster that sends you hurtling forward and backward through the Himalayan mountains – Expedition Everest. Take a walk along the Discovery Islands Trails, the Maharajah Jungle Trek or the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail for a variety of animal encounters. Hop aboard a jeep in the Kilimanjaro Safaris and cross paths with hundreds of wild animals roaming free. Or cool off on a hot day with a trip down the Kali River Rapids. Younger children will love The Boneyard, a giant playground filled with nets, slides and tunnels. They can also climb aboard the Wildlife Express Train or check out fun-filled rides like TriceraTop Spin and Primeval Whirl. And the entire family will love two Broadway style shows – Festival of the Lion King, a colorful celebration of pageantry and puppetry about Simba the Lion cub and Finding Nemo – The Musical, a spectacular musical with equally stunning puppetry.
