The largest single Disney theme park in the world, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park dedicates more than 200 hectares (500 acres) to the animal conservation philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney. Divided into seven themed areas, the park blends elements of a theme park and zoo, offering rides through the diverse worlds of wild animals. You can go on a safari through Sahara or navigate a wild river in Asia, surrounded by zebras, lions, tigers, bats, iguanas, giant anteaters, wallabies, and other exotic creatures. Most animals are real, although some are animatronic. The park also offers an adrenaline-junkie's roller coaster, as well as carnival-style rides and games in an area designed to recall the roadside attractions once scattered throughout the country.

Magic Kingdom is always magical. Love coming here especially during the end of the year holidays and the new year. So much celebration, great food, fun rides and experiences. If you own a home nearby you can come hang out here everyday just even meet up with friends. Make sure to enjoy the festival of fantasy parade as well as the Happily Ever After and Enchantment fireworks spectacular. I look forward to all the new rides and attractions coming.
This is a great park, and that's coming from a Senior Wilderness Explorer! The rides are fun, most notably the Expedition Everest ride. Even the Safari "ride" is great! So many cool animals roaming to see. We easily hot two full days out of this when we decided to complete the Wilderness Explorer badge collection. The park theme in Asia is really well done too!
