"Animal Kingdom: The Oasis & Discovery Island" Walt Disney World - Animal Kingdom Tip by Jefie
Walt Disney World - Animal Kingdom, Orlando: 52 reviews and 104 photos
Animal Kingdom is the most recent of Walt Disney World's theme parks. It opened in 1998 and technically, it is the biggest of all the parks since it covers over 500 acres, but because there are less attractions it's the only park we were able to visit in just one day. As soon as you set foot in the Oasis section of Animal Kingdom, you immediately get the feeling you've been transported to some far away tropical jungle. There are a variety of animal habitats to visit, though when you're on a fastpass hunt, chances are you're more likely to visit them on your way out.
Discovery Island sits at the center of the park and it is home to the Tree of Life, a huge artificial tree almost entirely made up of animal wood carvings. Though it does not stand out the way Cinderella's Castle or the Sorcerer's Hat do, the Tree of Life is the official Animal Kingdom icon. Right underneath the tree there's a theatre where you can catch the 3D movie "It's Tough to be a Bug", inspired by the popular movie "A Bug's Life". As with most 3D movies at Walt Disney World, this one also comes with pretty cool "4D" effects that'll keep you laughing 'til the end!
