Scoping the Park

Mike Scopa takes you around the Animal Kingdom.

One-Day Happy Family Touring Plan

A plan for families of all ages. Includes time-saving tips for teens and adults visiting the Animal Kingdom's thrill rides, as well as age-appropriate attractions for parents with small children. The entire family stays together as much as possible (including lunch), but this plan allows groups with different interests to explore their favorite attractions without having everyone wait around.

Arrive at the entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom 25 minutes prior to opening (40 minutes mid-June to mid-August and during holidays). Pick up a park map and entertainment schedule. Stroller rentals are just past the entrance, to the right.
