Disney's Animal Kingdom

Disney in Orlando is made up of four separate parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It also has two water parks.

We went to Animal Kingdom for the first time in November 2019 and really loved it. It is very pretty as a park and one of the central features is Tree Of Life which is 145 feet tall. In November it had lasers shining on it projecting images of snow and cute animals in winter scenes which was very good. There are, as the name suggests animals here but we went late afternoon and by the time we had got to where some of the animals were in the park they had been put to bed for the night. The safari was still open in the dark though and it was very worthwhile going on and much longer than we had expected.

The World of Avatar is within Animal Kingdom and has the very popular Flight of Passage 3D ride as one of its main attractions. We only walked through this land when we were there but it looked amazing at night and it is definitely a place we are going to go back to.

There are no firework displays at this park because of the worry it would cause the animals. Instead there is an excellent laser show on the central lake each evening.

Of the four Disney parks in Orlando we like Animal Kingdom the best and it really surpassed our expectations. Well worth a visit, in our opinion.
