Animal Kingdom With Small Children

Festival of the Lion King & Finding Nemo

This show is located in Camp Minnie-Mickey and is a festival of traditional African dance with music and acrobatics performed by beautifully costumed actors. Your kids will recognize some familiar faces from The Lion King movies and love to sing along while the talented troupe tells the familiar tale amid incredible props and floats.

Kids who love Disney's Finding Nemo will cherish watching their favorite characters zip around the stage to recount the adventure of the lost little clown fish. But even youngsters who have never seen the film will be entranced by the bright costumes, fun music, and special effects- the perfect show for a restless or crabby toddler.

Kilimanjaro Safaris

This attraction bounces you along over 100 acres of carefully constructed African habitat. Your kids will be delighted to see giraffes, rhinos, crocodiles, cheetahs, lions, and so much more. For little riders who might not fully appreciate fun facts from the guide, it is best to arrive for your safari right when the park opens to guarantee the best animal views.

Na've River Journey

Although the Avatar film is decidedly not for kids, the Pandora section at Animal Kingdom boasts some amazing views and a special ride that will pique the interest of little minds. The Na'vi River Journey is a ride like no other, with state-of-the-art animatronics and a glowing forest, you and your crew will feel like you have left earth to visit the most peaceful alien planet imaginable.

Pangani Forest Exploration Trail

This beautiful path winds through jungle foliage, past waterfalls, and to viewing areas where you have the chance to observe okapi, gorillas, and hippos.

It is important to get here early with young children, as it is a hike of sorts, and the hot sun in the summer can make the walkways almost unbearable later in the day.

Your kids will be having so much fun at Animal Kingdom that they won't realize that they are actually learning – about conservation, wildlife abundance, and the importance of preserving animals' natural habitats.

On your next trip to Disney World with kids, don't count Animal Kingdom out as a great park to visit. With a little planning and research, Animal Kingdom might just become your favorite park for kids!
