In the next post in our series about the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, we’re going to be taking a look at what’s on offer in the fourth and final theme park at the resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.

Opened in 1998, Disney’s Animal Kingdom combines a range of theme park rides with animal exhibits and is home to more than 250 different species. It will take you at least a day to explore the park and enjoy everything that it has to offer.

The park is divided into the following areas:

  • Oasis
  • Discovery Island
  • Camp Minnie-Mickey
  • Africa
  • Rafiki’s Planet Watch
  • Asia
  • DinoLand U.S.A.

If you are travelling to Disney’s Animal Kingdom by car, you can park in th large car park in front of the main entrance. Alternatively, you can get to Disney’s Animal Kingdom by bus from the other theme parks and the Disney resort hotels.

When you arrive at the park, make sure that you pick up a park map at the entrance. It’s a large theme park and it’s easy to get lost!

In the next post in this series, we’ll start to take a look at some of the various attractions within the Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. In the meantime, catch up with our previous posts about the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando by clicking on the links below.
