Disney is unique when it comes to Animal Kingdom, a mixture of zoo, rides, shows and parades makes your day!
Go early in the morning a take the safari ride first while the animals are awake. You will see many different animals. It is a quieter park, however, have a great roller coaster not to be missed, Expedition Everest!

This park has improved so much since my last visit.
Still very much Disney but less cheesy and more focused. I really enjoyed the new "Flights of Wonders" show they put together. It is not your typical bird tricks show. Without giving it away, I would just say it was fun filled with good humor and high energy.
The Expedition Everest yeti ride is not to be missed. This is of course one of the most popular attractions in the park. Your best bet is to go early and pick up a fast pass. It was a great thrilling ride full of surprises.
Another very memorable attraction is the Kilimanjaro Safaris. I am not a big fan of the cheesy Disney narration but it is always fun to see some animals.
The primeval whirl is a highly underrated ride. It might look silly but it was a really fun ride. Imagine tea cups on steroid.
Finding Nemo and Festival of the Lion King - two shows you really shouldn't miss. The quality of the performance was simply amazing. I couldn't believe they were just theme park attractions.
Last but not least, budget some time for Rafiki's Planet Watch. There are lovely animals to be petted and an interesting sound show.

I remember when this park first opened! It is a great addition to the Disney family that seems to add another dimension to the theme park experience! They have all types of animals from around the world all in one place!

Overall, Disney’s Animal Kingdom was a great experience. The abundance of extras ensures you’ll have a wonderful time, even if you don’t have any little ones! However, if it is just a zoo you are looking for and nothing else I wouldn’t suggest spending the money – you’d be able to see the majority of the animals at another zoo at a fraction of the cost.

My Favorite Disney Park! I'm just so sad that I wasn't able to finish it in one day!
Rides (in rank order)
*Expedition Everest: Go here first to get a fast-pass.
*Kilimanjaro Safaris: go at least twice. Once during the early morning and once
*Dinosaur Ride: Indiana Jones with Dinosaurs
Shows (in rank order)
*Lion King: The BEST Show in the park. A definite must!.
*Finding Nemo: A fishy musical complete with many Nemos!
*Mickey's Jungle Jam: Disney Parade
*Flights of Wonder: Good, but you might get hit by the birds. They tend to fly very low. The host often asks for volunteers, so don't me shy!
*This is the only park where you can get Safari hats with Mickey ears!

I enjoy going to zoos but I really loved Animal Kingdom. The enclosures are beautiful and spacious and presented in grand Disney style. While you have your standards like lions and tigers the great thing about the park is that it also has a lot of unusual species. For example, when was the last time you saw a gerenuk at a zoo? Of course, the rides are fantastic, too. Expedition Everest is a great thrill and Dinosaur is a lot of fun.
