Come and explore Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park!
The last, and
largest, Disney World theme park was opened on April
22, 1998. Covering more than 500 acres, it is themed
after animal conservation, pioneered by Walt Disney.
In consideration for the animals, the park closes
earlier than the others. There are no fireworks at
Animal Kingdom, and the animals have strict
schedules to avoid stress.
Disney's Animal Kingdom is accredited by the
Association of Zoos and Aquariums,. This means that
they have met and exceeded the standards in
education, conservation, and research. It is the
eighth most visited park in the world, and the fifth
most visited in the United States.
The park’s icon is the 14-story-tall artificial
tree, named the Tree of Life. It is artificial and
carved into it are 325 animals. Inside it is the 3-D
interactive film It’s Tough to Be a Bug!, and is
similar to Rafiki’s tree from The Lion King.
Animal Kingdom is divided into six themed areas, all
of them with many different exotic animals to see
and learn about, as well as many things to do and
