Happy Anniversary Animal Kingdom!

Animal Kingdom

Happy Earth Day!

It’s also another special day – Animal Kingdom celebrates it’s 15 year anniversary today! The fourth park built in Walt Disney World, Animal Kingdom originally opened on April 22, 1998. The ‘lands’ included in the 1998 opening included Africa, Discovery Island, Oasis, Camp Minnie + Mickey, Rafiki’s Planet Watch and Dinoland U.S.A. The land ‘Asia’ was added one year later in 1999.

Animal Kingdom is home to many of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World. You CANNOT beat the Kilimanjaro Safari Ride, which over the course of a day spent at AK we will ride a few times just to see what animals have been hiding or have decided to come out and play! Other favorites of our family include Kali River Rapids (ride when you are just about to leave the park or you’ll be soaked ALL DAY!), Expedition Everest, the Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo the Musical. Our favorite place to eat in Animal Kingdom is Restaurauntasaurus.

So what are your favorites in Animal Kingdom? Any ‘MUST DO’s” on your list?
