Its been too many years since the last time I visited Disney World in Florida. So long that I didn’t even know that they built an amazing animal park that is by far the king (queen) of all animal parks and safaris put together! Disneyworld Animal Kingdom!
Here’s Why A Visit to Disneyworld Animal Kingdom in Florida is a Must:
Kilimanjaro Safari – We have literally been on over ten different safaris. Granted none of them have been the real deal in Africa, but I’d say most were pretty amazing. But nothing can compare to this one!
First of all, the cars and roadways are as if you are traveling through different areas of Africa.
The animals you will see here are so close that you can practically touch them. In perfect habitats. We saw cheetahs (never before have we seen this). Plus a very endangered White Rhino.
A lion pride. And so many more animals that you wouldn’t see at a normal zoo setting or an under budgeted safari. Which seem to be the case when compared to Disney!
Mount Everest Rollercoaster – Want to see the Yeti monster up close and personal? I have to say, this Mount Everest roller-coaster comes fully equipped with snow, total excitement and a Yeti! DO.NOT.MISS.
Lion King Show – Each show seems to out do the other show. Lion King was amazing. With enormous sized animals (not real) and colorful African kings and queens (also not the real ones, but humans) and Simba, Pumba and Timon (giant sized). All with great songs and dance for everyone. Including my two year old who was mesmerized the whole time.
Tree of Life – This tree is one of the exhibitions you see along the way as you stroll through the park. I don’t even think you can enter it, well at least we didn’t. But it’s so cool to look at as you study the fine design and characters sketched in it’s trunk.
Africa – Wanna party like the Africans. You can during a street party.
Drums, dancing and tribal beats give you a good jolt of energy.
Asia – Each area is designed to imitate as though you’re visiting the continent. Granted it’s a bit hard to get all of Asia in, since it’s sooooo diverse with cultures and traditions. But as you walk along, the true colors are accentuated and each has a ride to go with it.
Animals – The animal exhibitions are actually part of nature trails with huge openings known as cages. Similar to a safari only walkable.
You can see Gorillas
Komodo Dragons, which are just a few of the insanely exotic, up close encounters you can have. But there are soooo many more.
The trails are super easy, stroller and handicap accessible.
Character friends – What’s a Disney day out without hanging with your favorite Disney Characters?
Bonus – they do valet stroller parking for you. The only thing is, they don’t bring it out to you! I think we can manage finding our carriage after the attractions.
