We really enjoyed the Animal Kingdom. After seeing many other animal parks and zoos, this has to be one of the best.

Been many times and always thought it was the most unexciting park out of all the Disney Parks, but now since they introduced Pandora? Just go and ride a Banshee......Woop

The additions of Pandora and Rivers of Light make Animal Kingdom a full day activity. Lines at Pandora are unreal - so stay at a Disney resort, rope-drop during extra magic hours, and see Pandora early before the crowd arrives. Rivers of Light is worth...More

For animal kingdom we got there at 6:45 AM. Opening was 7am for people staying at resorts. It was very very crowded because of the opening of Avatar.
