Disney Animal Kingdom consists of an 110 acre replica of an African Safari, two Broadway shows, a thrilling roller coaster, and up-close encounters with numerous animals.

On most days, Animal Kingdom closes around 5:30 or 6pm. Knowing this, we strongly recommend to visit the Animal Kingdom in the middle of your Disney World vacation; by taking this advice, it gives you and your family a day to get to bed early and rest. This is especially important to parents of younger children. We need to remember most children get so worked up and excited about going to Disney World, they wear themselves out. Disney Animal Kingdom has a myriad of fine restaurants, but since the park closes early, you may choose to find dinner at a number of quality restaurants in the Downtown Disney World area.
Special Hint - The best time to visit the Disney Animal Kingdom is very early in the morning. This is when the animals are most active and this is also when they are being fed.
