As the marketing campaign stated when Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park came to fruition on Earth Day in 1995 – there are many things it is, but one thing it is not – not a zoo! In fact, this theme park is like no other at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Sure, it has world-class thrill rides, attractions and shows, but it also brings another one of Walt Disney’s loves to life that had previously been untapped – his love of animals. Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park brings together a unique collection of rides, shows, parades and mixes them in with the excitement of seeing exotic wild animals in re-creations of their natural habitats. In other words, if you make it out to Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, you are just as likely to see a roaming giraffe on the safari as you are to see Mickey Mouse in the theme park! Want more proof that it is not a zoo? Check out all of the information below to find out more about this larger-than-life park.
