Animal Kingdom

Disney's Animal Kingdom is the newest theme park at Walt Disney World and, despite Disney's best marketing attempts to make you think otherwise, it still strikes some as of a zoo with some rides thrown in. At this point, you either love it or you don't - there doesn't seem to be many middle ground opinions. Most of the park is still outdoors - which lends to the hot and cranky factor of the average guests. Disney has placed a number of large electric fans throughout the park which does help somewhat. Also, if you want a quick cool-off there is a pull shower located in Harambe Village in the Africa section of the park. Guests who love the live entertainment at Epcot will find many similar and interactive opportunities at the Animal Kingdom...if you know where to look.

The place where the Animal Kingdom really shines is in its wonderful live entertainment. "Finding Nemo - the Musical" is the newest show in all of Disneyworld and is impressing young and old alike with its amazing giant puppets. "Festival of the Lion King" is a long-time favorite with all the wonder of Broadway meets Cirque du Soleil. Pocohontas and Her Forest Friends doesn't generate a lot of excitement. There are lots of smaller Street Performance type acts that should not be missed. "G-Force" is an impressive trampoline act. There are various percussion or musical groups, and the amazing "Divine" is a real treat. Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade has fun and festive floats and and music.
