Why Visit Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World

Get your park ticket and see how Disney storytelling comes to life at Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort!

Walt Disney World opened its fourth major Theme Park - Animal Kingdom - appropriately enough on Earth Day in 1998. The Theme Park features more than 1,700 animals spread across eight themed areas: Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki's Planet Watch, Asia, Dinoland USA and the all-new Pandora - The World of Avatar! The Theme Park is fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums yet it offers so much more than your typical zoo.

Animal Kingdom Theme Park's centerpiece is the massive Tree of Life. Visible from many areas of the park, guests can view the towering icon from all sides to view the 325 different animal carvings. Experience more Magic when you go inside the base of the tree itself to find a 3D movie and multimedia show entitled, It's Tough to be a Bug.

Expedition Everest

Popular rides include Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, a pulse-pounding roller coaster that takes guests careening through the Himalayan Mountains, both forward and BACKWARD! If you're looking for a fun-filled scare, try DINOSAUR, a prehistoric ride on a Time Rover where you'll travel back in time to try and rescue an Iguanadon before extinction by a giant meteor. Beware as you may come face-to-face with some other prehistoric creatures along the way!


Disney World Magic for the younger set includes DinoLand USA where you'll find attractions like the Boneyard - an educational playground themed around a replica of a dinosaur dig site. Kids can explore and enjoy rope ladders, slides, tunnels and multiple levels. You can even pretend to be an archaeologist and dig the replica remains of a 10,000 year old wooly mammoth. This area of the park also includes Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama, a mini land with a brightly colored midway or rides and games of chance. Rides include the Triceratop Spin and Primeval Whirl, a mini roller coaster.

Another popular stop in DinoLand USA is the live musical show, Finding Nemo - The Musical. Enjoy the sights, sounds and story of Nemo's undersea world through the magic of puppetry, amazing acrobats and an assortment of dancers.
