Animal kingdom

Hi all was wondering if animal kingdom is worth a visit or are we better off spending the day in a different park? We are going as a party of 12 the oldest being 64 and the youngest being 1. X

All parks are worth a visit but that is just my opinion. There are good bits from each park including AK.

Of course :) Plenty to do for all ages. We love the safari ride, the train ride to Rafiki's planet watch and petting the goats, digging in Dino Dig (little ones), riding Dinosaur, Kali RIver Rapids, Expedition Everest, watching moneys, hunting out Tigers, visiting Gorillas, doing the character trails, watching the Lion King Show & Nemo Show and eating at Yak & Yeti

I have been many times but have yet to see the Flight of Wonder show ... that's on my to do list for next time!

It is well worth going to and a very good park IMHO. Something to do for everyone. Have a look at their website and see what there is to do there.

For us, it was worth a half-day visit. Of course, we didn't have interest in any of the shows - if your party is into seeing the shows, a full day would be needed.

We found Animal Kingdom to be a lot hotter and involve a lot more walking than the other Disney parks.

I would not advise skipping AK. We just got back last week and this was our 2nd favorite (behind MK). Although there are not a lot of rides the ones they do have are great. Especially the safari, which is great for all ages. Also the Nemo show was awesome!

I would go. Something for everyone there. Some, but not many, great rides (love Expedition Everest). Very good shows. The safari ride and just the detail through out the park is amazing in my opinion.

Personally, I wouldn't bother with Animal Kingdom. Didn't like it at all. You can go to a zoo/safari park in the UK and the rides weren't that great. Was also the most crowded. Time better spent at Universal, IOA & MK IMO.
