Kid's Favorites at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park

It’s no surprise that the Walt Disney World Resort is full of things for children, but it may surprise you just how many of those things you can do with your child – and enjoy it just as much as they do! From musicals to parades and even attractions, the family-friendly environment of the Disney Parks definitely allows families to stay and have fun together!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is no exception to this rule, as this conservation and animal-themed park is full of things that both parents and children are sure to enjoy. The shows in this park are second to none, and they just to happen to appeal just as much to children for their content as they do for adults because of their Broadway-style atmosphere. Finding Nemo – The Musical is one such show, combing puppetry, special effects and an entire musical score produced just for this attraction to re-create the story of the hit Disney-Pixar movie “Finding Nemo.” Yet another performance that kids will love is the Festival of the Lion King. This show too is based off of one of the Disney classics (“The Lion King”), but the reason why kids love it so much is because they can become part of the show! During one segment of the production, children from the audience are hand-picked to come down and help play instruments along with the performances on the stage floor –be sure to sit close to the floor and near the end of the row if you want your child to have a better chance of being selected!

Other children’s favorites at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Although it gets a little bumpy at times, it’s yet another attraction that appeals to children, as is the entire area of Rafiki’s Planet Watch, in particular the petting zoo area at the Affection Section.

Whether your vacation plans for visiting the Walt Disney World Resort includes children or not, each guest that visits can rest assured knowing that there are plenty of entertainment options at the four theme parks and two water parks for everyone in the family. Yet another friendly reminder for your family is that your vacation doesn’t have to break the bank either, especially if you purchase your discounted theme parks tickets right here at!
