Walt Disney World property is extremely large. First-time visitors often exclaim that they had no idea just how massive the resort truly is. Boating, mini-golf, and even rock climbing walls are just a few of the activities that Walt Disney World has to offer. It would be easy to spend a month at Disney, and never run out of things to do. Nevertheless, it is the four theme parks that hold primary interest to the new visitor. As the largest of the parks, Animal Kingdom may seem imposing, and those with only one day to spend may wonder how they will ever make it through the entire park.
While it is true that with only one day to spend, you are likely not to have time for all of the detail that Animal Kingdom has to offer, with a solid touring plan it is possible to visit the highlights. Your exact plan will vary according to your interests, but some general tips and tricks will apply to everyone.
Although Animal Kingdom is the largest of the four parks in terms of square footage, it is one of the smaller parks in a number of actual major attractions. With a plan to keep you on schedule, there is no reason why you cannot experience all of the major attractions in one day.
Do not, however, get so caught up in major attractions that you forget to enjoy the details. Animal Kingdom is an extraordinarily detailed park, and half the fun is in the walking trails and paths to nowhere that are found throughout. Maintain a reasonable pace, but always look around, and do not be afraid to try a new path. Animal Kingdom is a one-of-a-kind blend of theme park and animal habitat and deserves to be appreciated for its uniqueness. Following the tips and tricks detailed above should you allow time for the full Animal Kingdom experience during your one-day visit? Remember, there is always next time.
