We had season passes for Walt Disney World in Orlando for a couple of years and we loved the time we spent roaming Animal Kingdom! Since we homeschooled our kids, we would hop in the car and in less than an hour be at their front door.
Most of these photos were from the same day and they show some of our favorite parts of Animal Kingdom.
The Tree Of Life is the majestic focal point of Animal Kingdom! It’s massive and impressive.
Animal Kingdom Tree of Life Facts

DiVine, the walking vine
DiVine brings beauty and grace to Animal Kingdom. You’ll usually find her “hanging around” on the path between Africa and Asia. Keep an eye out or you might walk right past her!

Animal Kingdom Rides
Animal Kingdom has rides for every age and level. Primeval Whirl is one of our favorite rides! You get a great view of the park. My daughter lost a baby tooth while we were riding one day – lol.
Exhibition Everest is in Asia and is a must for the thrill-seekers in your family. We loved it!
All in all, this is a great park for everyone. There are several shows always going on and rides for all ages. Pick up a map and check the board for showtimes.
