Animal Kingdom® Important Park Info

There are a variety of ticket options available for all of the Walt Disney World® Resort theme parks, including Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. Visitors can purchase anywhere from one-day to 10-day ticket plans for all of the parks at the Walt Disney World® Resort. These tickets can be a Magic Your Way® base ticket, which will allow you access to only one park per day, or you can upgrade your package with either the Park Hopper® Option, which allows you to go to and from all four theme parks as you like, or the Water Park Fun and More Option, which gives you access to the water parks and other attractions. And, just like most theme parks, if you decide to leave Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park throughout the day and plan to return to it or another park later, have your hand stamped and hold on to your original ticket to be able to return to the park’s premises. However, it’s important to mention that this theme park closes earlier than the other three parks at the Walt Disney World® Resort. So, if you’re planning on park hopping, it may be a good idea to hit this one first thing in the morning and not wait until the afternoon to visit – or you may not see everything you want!

The Walt Disney World® Resort reputation for customer service is world-renowned, making all of their theme parks even more enjoyable to visit. You will encounter a wide array of guest services inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, each of which sets the standard for the theme park industry. You will find several ATM machines located throughout the park, but you won’t need them if you are a guest at a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel – your room key will also act as your credit card, directly billing any and everything you purchase anywhere around the resort directly to your room. Too that end as well, you can also have any purchase you make delivered directly to your hotel room free of charge. Child care is also available within the park, as baby service areas can be found throughout, and first aid stations are also available. All of these locations can be found on guide maps that can be picked up just inside the gates of the Studios.

In addition, the usual staples at theme parks, such as locker rentals, stroller, wheelchair and ECV rentals and public telephones are also available. Services for the disabled are also highly taken into account in all four Walt Disney World® theme parks. A special Braille guidebook is available, free of charge, from Guest Relations and closed-captioning is also available on many of the movie/video-based attractions, as is written storylines for virtually all attractions and rides. There is also a special wireless translator available from Guest Relations, which will translate the audio portion of many attractions into Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, German or French. Disney also accommodates special dietary needs at sit-down restaurants, but please alert the chef as soon as possible about your concerns, preferably at the time when you make your reservation, and all special needs will be met whenever it is possible.

With only one parking lot (and continual tram services all day long), it is pretty easy to get to the park and doesn’t take long from the time you park to when you enter the front gates. And, as always, all Walt Disney World® Resort guests can take complimentary transportation via bus from any resort to any theme park, including Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park.
