Encounter exotic animals and exciting adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, one of the largest animal theme parks in the world. 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.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is distinguished from the rest of Walt Disney World’s theme parks in that it features traditional attractions while also exhibiting hundreds of species of live animals. Due to these sensitive conditions, special designs and provisions were incorporated throughout the park to protect the animals’ welfare.
The park is located on the western edge of the resort, and is isolated from the resort’s other theme parks and properties to minimize external disruptions to the animals; as a result, the park’s nighttime show also features no fireworks that would otherwise disturb the animals.
