At 500 acres, Disney's Animal Kingdom is five times the size of the Magic Kingdom and more than twice the size of Epcot. But like Disney's Hollywood Studios, most of the Animal Kingdom's vast geography is only accessible on guided tours or as part of attractions. Animal Kingdom consists of five sections, or "lands:" The Oasis, Discovery Island, DinoLand U.S.A., Africa, and Asia. (An additional section, Rafiki's Planet Watch, is touted as a land by Disney but doesn't really qualify as such in our eyes. Also, a land based on the movie Avatar is being created on the west side of the park that once housed Camp Minnie-Mickey.)
Its size notwithstanding, Animal Kingdom features a limited number of attractions. To be exact, there are seven rides, several walkthrough exhibits, an indoor theater, three amphitheaters, a conservation exhibit, and a children's playground.
See how crowded your next trip will be using the Crowd Calendar! We not only have resort-wide crowd levels, but per-park crowd levels as well. We'll also tell you which are the best days to visit this park.
Our step-by-step touring plans are field-tested for seeing as much as possible with a minimum of time wasted in lines. They're designed to help you avoid crowds and bottlenecks on days of moderate-to-heavy attendance.
Using the same statistical modeling behind our Crowd Calendar, we estimate the wait times for every attraction, and for every day in the next six months.
We have showtimes for every show, parade, and fireworks display as soon as Disney releases them -- and the times are sortable by land, showtime, and shows.
