We recently asked our Florida fans to name their all-time favourite rides and attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here are the results…

In 3rd place… DINOSAUR

Take a trip back in time, as you race to save a dinosaur from extinction. Can you find the Iguanodon before the meteor strikes?

In joint 2nd place… Kali River Rapids and Festival of the Lion King

Animal Kingdom River Rapids

Kali River Rapids

Hold on tight as you hurtle your way along the Chakranadi River on a whitewater adventure. A perfect way to cool off in the hot Florida sunshine.

Top Tip: Don’t want to ride? Head to the bridge overlooking the attraction, where you’ll find elephant-themed water sprayers – so you can drench your family and friends as they pass on by!

Festival of the Lion King Show - Animal Kingdom

Festival of the Lion King

This indoor stage show is suitable for all ages, and a firm favourite among families. Get ready to sing your heart out as you join Simba and friends in this fun and colourful celebration.

And the winner is… Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

It’s easy to see why Animal Kingdom’s biggest rollercoaster has landed top of our poll. Watch out for the Abominable Snowman as you venture through the Himalayas on this adrenaline-pumping adventure.

Did you know: Expedition Everest is the tallest artificial mountain in the Disney World parks, at a whopping 199 feet tall!

Special mention goes to these attractions, which didn’t quite make the cut:

  • Kilimanjaro Safari
  • Primeval Whirl
  • TriceraTop Spin
  • Finding Nemo – The Musical
