    Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park Tips

    Whether it’s your first visit or you want to refine your approach, here are tips for having the adventure of a lifetime at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park.

    Buy Tickets in Advance

    Save time and money before you arrive by purchasing authorized discount tickets to top theme parks and attractions from Visit Orlando powered by BestofOrlando.com.

    Spend Less Time in Line

    Create your best Disney day with the complimentary My Disney Experience app and Disney Genie Service. Upgrade to Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane Entrance for more than 40 attractions across the four Walt Disney World theme parks.

    Pack Lightly

    Keep things simple and portable, especially when traveling with kids. The last thing you want to do is juggle personal items around and feel weighed down. Streamline your necessities for a smoother day.

    Stay Hydrated

    Bring water, buy water or ask for free water and ice in a cup at any of the quick-service restaurants and eateries for your family. With all the excitement, someone might forget to stay adequately hydrated.

    Check Height Restrictions

    It's best to steer your kids away from experiences where you know they won't meet the height requirements, even if it's just half an inch. Safety comes first, and Cast Members won't budge on height requirements.

    Prepare for Rain

    This is Florida. Chances are it might rain, and you can’t use umbrellas on rides, so be sure to pack ponchos for your whole crew. Buying ahead of time at a local big box store will save you money.

    Schedule Some Breaks

    It’s smart to make time for breaks to avoid exhaustion or meltdowns. Everyone will feel refreshed by heading back to the hotel for an afternoon nap or cool dip in the pool.

    Rider Swap or Switch

    Let a Cast Member know about your need to ride switch to accommodate small children or guests with special needs. One guest will wait at a designated area with the non-rider while a second guest rides. The riders then switch.
