Overview Disney's Animal Kingdom is the largest park at Walt Disney World with areas representing several different continents and their respective cultures and environments. But don't worry; you can use the TouringPlans suite of tools to help you navigate the jungle paths to rides like Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safaris before you stop for a bite at Yak & Yeti or explore the alien world of Pandora - The World of Avatar. TouringPlans's tools will help you maximize your time in the parks, instead of losing that time waiting in line.

Animal Kingdom Park Hours and Crowd Levels
(Next 3 Days)

Animal Kingdom is rated 4.0 out of 5.0, based on 5,010 reader surveys assessing its attractions. (See our Ratings and Research page for details.)

The Animal Kingdom is the park most affected by weather since many of the attractions are outdoors. Make sure to check the forecast often before a day at Animal Kingdom. You will want to know how crowded it will be as well - that's where we come in. Our Crowd Calendar is the single best source for accurate predictions of crowd levels at Walt Disney World. You can also track-a-day with our Crowd Tracker to see when the Crowd Levels change.

Even if you have to visit the Animal Kingdom on a crowded day, we can help. Tell us what attractions, shows and restaurants you want to see and we'll give you a personalized plan to optimize your day.

The boundaries of Animal Kingdom make it the largest park by land mass. It also is the most unique of the four parks. Make sure to try all the different experiences that Animal Kingdom has to offer. But do it your own terms, with the shortest waits, on the least crowded days by using the Crowd Calendar and a Touring Plan.

Fairly limited restaurant selection and varied hours of restaurant operation in Animal Kingdom can make choosing meals a bit more difficult. Use TouringPlans to find menus and check hours of operation so that you have full access to restaurants like:
