Take an amazing safari expedition through a beautiful landscape, view exotic animals and incredible live shows, and enjoy thrilling attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, which opened on Earth Day, April 22, 1998, as Walt Disney World Resort’s fourth theme park (Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios being the other three Disney World parks).
Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park Attractions
Highlights of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park include Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade, a lively musical street party; Festival of the Lion King, an spectacular production that features songs and characters from the hit Disney animated film; Conservation Station, a wildlife conservation awareness exhibit; It’s Tough to be a Bug!, an entertaining 3-D film; Kali River Rapids, a thrilling rafting adventure along the turbulent Chakranadi River; Kilimanjaro Safaris, an open-sided expedition into the heart of Africa; and The Tree of Life, the theme park’s stunning 50-foot-wide icon that features more than 300 animal carvings.
In addition, don’t miss Expedition Everest, the an amazing Disney thrill ride in the Asia section of the Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park that features roller coaster-like thrills along with a theme based on the folklore of the mysterious yeti (also known as the abominable snowman). Guests board an old mountain railway, journeying through thick bamboo forests and past thundering waterfalls on their way to the foot of Mount Everest. Suddenly, the track ends “in a gnarled mass of twisted metal” and the train starts racing backward through mountain caverns and icy canyons toward a showdown with the ferocious yeti.
