One thing that many people say about a park with animals is, "been there, seen that." However, with this park, you couldn't be more wrong. Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom became the fourth park of the Walt Disney World Resort. The resort was blessed to add a theme of animal conservation. As always, you'll see and believe that you cross into another world all together.
On Earth Day, April 22, 1998, Animal Kingdom opened to the public. With an expansive 580 acres, Animal Kingdom is the largest Disney park in the world. Themed with seven different lands, each land carries a wide variety of animals specific to that area. With a whopping 4,791 sq. ft, The Kilimanjaro Safari ride is larger than the entire Magic Kingdom. The safari takes you into the wild to find a baby elephant while avoiding the local animal poachers. Meanwhile, a slew of animals are roaming out and about for everyone to see. The other E ticket attraction is Expedition Everest. You are headed on a journey to the top of Mount Everest, but you learn something is off. You quickly realize that theYeti has taken over the mountain, and the only way out is trekking through the mountain before he can get to you. The Kali River Adventure is a rapids ride that takes you through the rain forest as it teaches you about illegal logging and habitat destruction. The 4-D experience, Its Tough To Be A Bug, is neatly tucked beneath the Tree of Life and makes a great way to finish out your day. However, some of these atractions may be frightening for smaller children.
For the safety of the animals, Animal Kingdom does not have a fireworks show and closes earlier than the other Disney parks. With the variety of other rides and shows like Finding Nemo the Musical, and the Festival of the Lion King, Animal Kingdom most certainly has something for everyone. A half day park for some, but to the family that loves animals and Disney, the memories will last a life time.
