Animal Kingdom

We loved Animal Kingdom! This was one of our favorite parks. If it had more rides it probably would've been our favorite for sure. This really is an amazing place!

This park was separated into 4 sections: Dinoland, Discovery Island, Africa, and Asia.

We loved Dinoland! The atmosphere was so much fun! It was almost like we were in the middle of the Flintstones. There were a few rides here: Dinosaur, Primeval Whirl, and TriceraTop Spin. My favorite of these rides was Dinosaur. It was a lot like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland but with dinosaurs everywhere. So much fun! Primeval Whirl was a bigger ride with a height requirement of 48". It was fun but it was a little too jerky for me. TriceraTop Spin was just like Dumbo except it had dinosaurs instead of elephants.

Discovery Island
This part of the park has a lot of fun attractions like The Tree of Life, Discovery Island Trails, and It's Tough to Be a Bug.

Asia has Kali River Rapids and Expedition Everest. Unfortunately, we didn't go on Kali River Rapids because it was raining all day but I'm sure it's similar to other rapid rides at other theme parks. Expedition Everest was probably one of my favorite rides I've ever been on at any theme park. This ride had everything, including big drops and riding backwards. It was so much fun!

We ate lunch at Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafe. It was Asian food with choices like honey chicken, teriyaki beef bowls, and egg rolls.This was our favorite meal we ate at Disney World. I would definitely recommend eating here. So good!
In Africa was Kilimanjaro Safaris which was my favorite thing about Animal Kingdom. You get on a big safari bus that takes you through "Africa" to look at all the animals. I was so surprised at how many animals we saw and how close they were. It was amazing! Way better than a zoo.

Fast Pass+
There aren't a lot of rides here but these are the Fast Pass+ choices:

Expedition Everest
Festival of the Lion King
Finding Nemo-The Musical
It's Tough to Be a Bug!
Kali River Rapids
Kilimanjaro Safaris
Primeval Whirl

If your family is into rides, like mine, I would recommend booking fast passes for Expedition Everest, Dinosaur, and Kilimanjaro Safaris. But it just depends on your preference.

If you book fast passes for other rides or attractions, you'll want to get in line early for Kilimanjaro Safaris because the line gets long pretty early in the day. We kind of lucked out because it was raining all day and there were no lines. We rode everything multiple times. The downside of the rain is everything here is pretty much outside so it was very hard to stay dry.

We only saw two shows here: Finding Nemo-The Musical and It's Tough To Be A Bug. I really loved Finding Nemo-The Musical! It's a big theater musical production of Finding Nemo. It's goes through the whole story with the addition of music. It really was so cute! This is also a great way to stay dry if it's raining! It's Tough To Be A Bug is a 3D movie that is also played at California Adventure.

The characters here are really fun. Mickey and Minnie are dressed like they're going on a safari. You can also meet a lot of the animal themed characters like King Louie and Baloo, Rafiki, Russel and Dug, and Pocahontas.
