Disney's Animal Kingdom, Orlando

4.1
#1 of 3,139 in Wildlife in United States
The largest single Disney theme park in the world, Disney's Animal Kingdom dedicates more than 200 hectares (500 acres) to the animal conservation philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney. Divided into seven themed areas, the park blends elements of a theme park and zoo, offering rides through the diverse worlds of wild animals. You can go on a safari through Sahara or navigate a wild river in Asia, surrounded by zebras, lions, tigers, bats, iguanas, giant anteaters, wallabies, and other exotic creatures. Most animals are real, although some are animatronic. The park also offers an adrenaline-junkie's roller coaster, as well as carnival-style rides and games in an area designed to recall the roadside attractions once scattered throughout the country.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
