Animal Kingdom For Seniors Tips, Suggestions & Surprises

Disney’s newest theme park, Animal Kingdom, is essentially a wildlife preserve with amazing sets and Disney attractions.

Walt Disney’s commitment to conservation is on full display in this park, with education programs and even most of the rides talking about the importance of protecting our animal friends.

Many of the attractions here naturally have a slower pace, with a few of them even self-guided.

The park does cover a lot of ground, so be sure to take breaks throughout the day at some of Walt Disney World’s finest snack spots!

Kilimanjaro Safaris

Arguably the best and most impressive attraction in the park, Kilimanjaro Safaris takes you on a trek across Disney’s 110 acre wildlife sanctuary, offering glimpses of about 15 different African animals like rhinos, giraffes, lions, and elephants, to name a few.

Festival of the Lion King

This Broadway-caliber performance is yes, based on a kids’ movie, but the costumes, music and sets will impress any age.

Puppets, dancers, and singers bring this classic tale to life right in front of your eyes – and it is dazzling.

Set in a theater in the round, familiar characters urge you to sing along to the infectious music – and let out the animal inside of you!

Finding Nemo

The Musical marks the first time Disney has turned one of its stories into a musical, and they pulled out all of the stops.

The story is transformed from the original with brand new songs composed by Tony-award winning composer Robert Lopez.

Puppeteers use three different puppetry styles to bring the characters to life, and lighting, props and projections give viewers the sense of being underwater.

It’s Tough to Be a Bug

Set inside the Tree of Life, it is worth the show just to see the impressive tree up close.

However, this exciting 3D film about being a bug will entertain – and educate – as well as impress you with the in-theater effects.

Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, Maharajah Jungle Trek

These paths take you on meandering walks through superbly crafted African and Asian habitats.

Because they are self-guided walks, you are able to go at your own pace and observe the animals as long as you would like.

These walks also afford excellent picture-taking opportunities.
