Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the fourth of four theme parks built at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake Florida, New Orlando, Florida. The park is opened on Earth Day April 22, 1998. It is the second largest theme park in the world and is also the first Disney theme park to be themed entirely based around the animal conservation. The park covers total area of 500 acres. In 2013, the park hosts approximately 10.19 million visitors, ranking it the fourth-most visited amusement park in the United States and seventh-most visited in the world. If you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World, it’s a great place to start when determining what and when you want to do various Animal Kingdom attractions. Here are the list of various attractions and rides:

Kilimanjaro Safaris: - Animal Kingdom’s flagship safari ride through “natural” environments exposing guests to a wide array of animals.With great story Kilimanjaro Safaris is an amazing attraction to visit. Where visitors see the animals in their natural environment. If you thinking about visiting then visit in morning or in the evening. Because at this time animals are more active.


Expedition Everest: - This ride is theme around the Yeti hiding in Mount Everest. Also it is listed in the 2011 book of Guinness World Records as the most expensive roller coaster. The total cost of was US$100 million, following 6 years of planning and construction. It is the tallest of the artificial mountains at Walt Disney World and in the world. It is Disney’s 18th mountain-themed attraction.


Kali River Rapids: - Whitewater raft ride spinning freely down a river through rainforest, ruins and deforested area. Kali River Rapids has a pretty setting. There are free 2 hours ride and it requires 38” height. A circular, slowly rotating boat dock leads you to the waiting rafts, some of which are aptly named “Manaslu Slammer”, “Banyan Bay”, “Kali Bumper Car” or “Sherpa Surfer”.


Dinosaur: - A high speed wild drive in a time rover through dark show scenes with Audio Animation dinosaurs trying to capture a particular dinosaur before the moment of extinction. Dinosaur has a humorous pre-show video and some memorable scenes and encounters with dinosaurs. However the two rides are just as different from one another as Haunted Mansion and Spaceship earth.


Festival of the Lion King: - Acrobats, singers, and other performers in tribal attire and vibrant costumes, plus parade floats with Lion King Characters and other creatures enact scenes inspired by the Lion King in a very lively theatrical show. There is lots of stuff going on, in which basically amounts to a lot of audio visual stimulation.


Finding Nemo: The Musical: - Human performers are paired with creatively made puppets in a condensed retelling of Finding Nemo. The big draw here is how the entertainers manipulate the puppets. It’s an interesting concept, and the presentation and music are excellent. The story simply being a condensed version of the film, but this show brings enough novelty to the table that it just works. This is the best-done show at Walt Disney World.


Flights of Wonder: - Exotic bird “stunt” show in an outdoor amphitheater. Flights to Wonder is quite entertaining and engaging with a bit of self-aware, cheesy comedy that works really well to balance out its conservationist message. The intelligence of birds is astounding, and pretty funny too. It’s a great blend of Disney entertainment and wildlife.


It’s Tough To Be A Bug: - This is a 3D show about touting the benefits of inspects with the cast of A Bug’s Life. This is a prime example of how you use Disney characters to make an educational film feel like pure entertainment. It’s a lot of fun and there are some great “interactive” moments in the show.


Maharajah Jungle Trek: - Walk through animal’s exhibits with birds, bats and tigers. This will bring you close to various animals. While the animal encounters are great also the cast member sharing information about them. The environments through which you walk are the real star. At one point it seems as if you’re going through the ruins of a remote temple that has existed for thousands of years, and details abound everywhere. All of this makes it feel like you’re experiencing the actual environments where these animals live, rather than just observing them in their pens. If you are an active participant in some sort of exploration. This is the best animal exhibit you have ever experienced.


These are the some of the major rides and attraction of the park. Some other attractions are:
