Pandora is cool and looks cool but its just a small part of this place. Plus if you dont have a fast pass you can waste half your day waiting in line. Sit down food places are limited so get a reservation. I loved the animals and the safari ride but if could do it all over again I would have just spent a day at Discovery Cove instead.

Wasn't sure about going here but had a fabulous day! Had a problem with our Disney card on entrance that was sorted by guest services and on our complaint was given a fast track ticket for all of our party of 7 for any ride any time which was great as very busy! We used that on the safari as a 2 hour wait otherwise! The safari was good and the driver had plenty of knowledge! Everest is a must for a roller coaster fans it was brilliant! Didn't get to go on the new avatar ride as the wait was far to long! Saw the lion king show which we all loved! All in all a good day our only critisism is that near the entrance are some lemurs in an enclosure and when we were leaving there was a very loud band playing and the lemurs looked distressed! They need to be moved to a quieter spot!

Our family visited the fist week of June and was disappointed in how extremely packed the park was. 2 1/2 hour wait times for one ride is way too long (especially when you have kids). We did manage to do the Safari which was great, and the Lion King Show is truly amazing. Pack your patience.

After visiting Disney World, Animal Kingdom turned out to be the favourite park of our 3 year old. After meeting the characters, she really enjoyed completing the Wilderness Explorer handbook and learning about the world we live in, along with seeing the multiple animals though the safari and various walkthroughs.

The rides and shows in this park are a good quality, although the wait times for the newer Avatar rides were too long to wait in (although do keep checking for fast passes!).

Our 3 year old really enjoyed the Navii Riverboat ride along with the river rapids, flying dinos, safari train to the petting zoo and safari tour. The shows were all well received, too. The Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo the Musical are really well produced and entertaining shows. We've had to play the soundtrack for the latter on Apple Music since returning home!

The nighttime show Rivers of Light is much better in person than the videos I've seen on YouTube. People were lining up for it from the early evening (around 5PM), but we were able to get in and seated about 15 minutes before the show by the Dinoland USA entrance.

We had booked the tickets while in the uk we got off at the bus drop off and made our way into the park. Firstly our bags got checked that happens at every park. We popped into the rainforest car first to get a drink at even at 9 in the morning it wss red hot. The rainforest cafe is great its like you are actually in the rainforest will all different types of animals that are electronic and move. We booked fast tract tickets for the Kilimanjaro safari as the bar tender said that it gets super busy we did via the app. We arrived at the safari and went in the ride it was great an the member of staff who was driving the truck was very knowledgeable. We didn't see much more of the park as our young daughter was struggling with the heat and also far to many people. Its well worth a visit
