Disney's Animal Kingdom
Disney's Animal Kingdom is the newest of all the Walt Disney World theme parks. And what a theme park it is! Sure, there are rides, shows and a parade, but Animal Kingdom is more than just that.
It's an adventure!
Animal Kingdom is also a big park...as in there is a lot of walking. Before you start your adventure, please make sure you have comfortable shoes (trust me on this one). Oh, and if you like, you can view more Animal Kingdom pictures.
So come on along and let's discover it together.
Animal Kingdom Attractions
There are five basic kinds of attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom:
Let's see what attractions fit into what categories.
Places to Eat in Disney's Animal Kingdom
As they sometimes say on TV -- "Ya gotta eat!" When your tummy rumbles, you have a choice of quick-service food stands, a sit-down restaurant and character dining. Here's what to expect
Disney's Animal Kingdom Special Tours
For those who dare (and who reserve early enough) there are some special tours available :
Animal Kingdom Entertainment
In between the rides, food and tours, there is still more to see at Disney's Animal Kingdom! Here are some of the entertainment options:
Here's a secret to seeing Mickey's Jammin' Jungle parade in comfort. About an hour to 45 minutes before the parade starts, wander over to Dawa Bar in Africa. Get yourself a nice little table near the front and have something to drink (bottled water, soda or cocktails). When the parade starts, you'll be in a great position to view it. And better yet -- the parade loops back around and ends near you too!
Do you carry a purse, bag, camera case or backpack? You won't be able to get into the park until that bag/backpack/etc. is searched. So, the less you can get by with, the faster the search.
To help keep you comfortable on your Animal Kingdom trip, please remember to bring sunglasses, sunscreen (or wear a long-sleeved shirt) and perhaps a hat of some sort. The Florida sun is pretty strong, especially in the summer. And I'll say it again -- wear comfortable shoes -- you will be doing a lot of walking.
Keep drinking fluids -- by the time you get thirsty, you're already a little dehydrated.
To forget about the rest of the world for awhile! Enjoy your wonderful day at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Have a Great Disney Vacation!
The Secret to Eating at the Rainforest Cafe
Want to eat at the Rainforest Cafe but the wait is really long? Even if you have a reservation, this is one restaurant that always seems to have a line...a long line!
If you don't want to wait, mosey on over to the bar area. There are tables available, and the same food is served there as in the main part of the restaurant (which you can clearly see). And the bar stools are really cool -- they look like legs from different animals.
When I've been there, at least at lunctime, the "bar" was pretty much just people eating. So don't be shy about eating here!
And the wait time is great -- we've been able to walk right in every time.
