Nearly 35,000 ratings earned Disney’s Animal Kingdom the final spot on our list of the top amusement parks in North America, though honestly, we’d put it first. We loved our time there with a six-month-old, three-year-old, six-year-old and a nine-year-old. Plus, it’s not quite as crowded as the other Disney parks and probably has even more family-friendly attractions than anywhere else.
“Encounter exotic animals and exciting adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, one of the largest animal theme parks in the world,” shares the TripAdvisor text. “Home to more than 2,000 animals across 300 unique species, the park reflects Walt Disney’s dedication to conservation and is committed to animal care, education and research. Explore seven enthralling lands: Oasis, Discovery Island, Pandora – The World of Avatar, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and DinoLand, U.S.A.”
Seriously, if you love animals and want the closest possible thing to a kid-safe safari experience without leaving North America, this is it. And it’s SO good, and easily coupled with other Disney parks experiences. Reserve a full one to two days for this adventure.
