Insider Tips for Disney World's Animal Kingdom

Tree of Life Animal KingdomThe shows are the big attraction at Animal Kingdom. Plan your day around the show times and wait times. There is a Tip Board in Discovery Island.

The whole family will enjoy the Kilimanjaro Safaris trip—animals in their natural habitat.

Discovery Island® has live entertainment in the late afternoon.

Eats: One of my favorite places to eat is the Rainforest Cafe (priority seating) A breakfast bonanza is served up with Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Mexican-style breakfast pizza, waffles, fruit plates, and sirloin steak with scrambled eggs; or try a breakfast smoothie. For dinner there is a wide assortment of the usual and unusual appetizers, soups and salads, burgers, sandwiches, seafood specialties, pizza, steak, chicken, and pasta. Complete the dining experience with a homemade dessert like Key Lime Pie or Volcano Brownie Cake. Kids too have their choice of everything from pastas and pizza to seafood and hot dogs.

Animal Kingdom closes early. If you have a park hopping option, use the cool evening hours to enjoy one of the other theme parks or enjoy an evening at Downtown Disney.
