"In the jungle"

The animal Kingdom.

As you pull up to the kingdom via disney transport or the monorail you will be taken to a place that feels like the jungle. You get the feeling that your going deep into the rainforest and you r thinking about what you might find.

But before you enter the park on the left of the enterance you will see a rainforest cafe. For anyone who has never seen one its an experience worthy of Disney magic on its own. You enter and are faced with an indoor rainforest complete with tropical fish in a huge tank that you can walk under. Electronic robotic elephants and gorillas along with birds etc..

The bar is done to be like a toadstool and all the bar stools around it are the bottoms and legs of animals which you sit on.

At certain intervals the robots come alive to the changing conditions within the forest. You will have rain and lightning but never of course get wet. The gorillas call out and the elephants shout.

The food is great to and order the drinks with the special glasses that flash you get to keep the glass as a souvenier which is even better. There is also a gift shop attatched to the resturant for little bits at the end of the day if you want them.

As you enter the park like all disney you see the centre piece and in the animal kingdom its the tree of life. A huge tree that can beseen from the entire park. I recommend when you start off in the park make sure you sort out when you want to see the shows as you will need to be waiting around 30 mins or more to get in and if you miss a show you might not get everything in.

Within the tree of life you have bugs life 4d which is a fantastic show to see and you would be silly to miss it. You also must get the best live show that is at any disney park and that is the lion king. Its amazing and like watching a major west end or broadway show inside a theme park. Also you have the finding nemo show which is ok but its not as good as the lion king.

The rides at the park are not as good and there are not as many as other parks as this is meant for exploration and you get to see alot more. But there is expedition everest which is a rollercoaster heading to the summit of everest but will you get there or will you meet up with the yetty.

There is also a jungle safari which is at the very back of the park. This is a genuine safari and you go out into the plains and see all the wildlife at the park. Its a wonderful thing to have in a theme park and again there is a little story as you go like with anything disney nothing is ever as it should be.

As in every disney park at four oclock at this one you have a parade of all things disney so make sure you find a good spot early look for the red markings on the road as that is the parade route which includes the characters you see around the park and specially designed floats . Its very colourful and great to watch.

This park was enjoyable but it was not the best that disney have to offer. The rides that i have not mentioned are not great and the park is mainly shows and seeing animals. Still great for the family and makes a great day out. The best way to buy a ticket is via a flexi ticket for disney as you would almost get this free which makes things a little better. I hope when you go its a nice day as the park itself looks amazing with the river and the tree of life but make sure you save time to go to the rainforest cafe as it is the best part and what i found the best thing at the park during the entire day.

The last tip is to get there early to this park as it is the one that closes first in a day and if you are using disney transport they finsh there running times earlier than other parks as its out the way a little.

    Good review I think I'd still like to visit when I go to Orlando- but may not make it a priority above other attractions.
