Disney Animal Kingdom
Disney Animal Kingdom is a fantastic journey through the amazing land of nature. This animal theme park is about five times the size of Magic Kingdom and is filled with wonderful attractions and Disney Magic. Here you can visit with ferocious animals such as lions, elephants, and giraffes on their own turf, take a wild safari to the African plains, or head to a land of extinction to see dinosaurs of the past. You can stay in the middle of all the natural fun at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The layout of the Animal Kingdom is similar to Magic Kingdom, in that there are several lands connected to a central hub and Animal Kingdom Restaurants are available throughout the park. The lands are: The Oasis, Discovery Island, Raffiki's Planet Watch, Camp Minnie–Mickey, Africa, Asia, and Dinoland U.S.A.
The Oasis serves as a port of entry into the other lands. Here you see can critters of all types. There are two main paths in The Oasis: one to the left and one to the right. Both paths offer observation areas to view the many animals (deer, iguanas, anteaters, etc.).
Discovery Island is an island at the center of Animal Kingdom that you encounter after passing through The Oasis. The island is the shopping and dining center of Animal Kingdom.
