Behold the magic of nature with rare animals and world-class entertainment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. 

Experience a high-speed train trek forward and backward through the treacherous Himalayan unknown, where the dreaded Yeti lurks on Expedition Everest™–Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. Ride off in an open-air vehicle for a day or evening tour of a lush African savanna, home to real-live exotic animals at Kilimanjaro Safaris.

Embrace the magic of nature during a nighttime scene awash with captivating special effects, music and animal folklore with Rivers of Light; An innovative multi-sensory nighttime show, combining live performers, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery.

Animal Kingdom’s newest addition: Pandora – The World of Avatar. Soar on the back of a mountain banshee during a thrilling ride above this vast moon, only at Pandora – The World of Avatar.  Bonding with a mountain banshee is a crucial step in the life of a Na’vi hunter—and flying on the back of one of these powerful winged creatures represents an important rite of passage. Now, as a visitor to Pandora, you’ll finally have the chance to test yourself in a similar way! No visit is complete with a stop at the Conversation Station, where guests will encounter extraordinary animals and learn what it takes to care for them.

At night, watch in awe as the animal spirits within the Tree of Life awaken and bring with them a mesmerizing show of color and light. And don’t forget to go deep inside the Tree of Life to find out why It’s Tough to be a Bug!® in a funny, creepy, crawly 3-D adventure that will have you screaming and squirming for more. It’s a wildly playful adventure like no other. Throw in the park’s shows, special encounters and other enthralling features, and it’s easy to spend a day or more exploring Walt Disney World’s zoological theme park.
