    Hello Everyone We are coming to Disney In Aug with my ds 2 and my dd7 months. I am just wondering how stroller friendly Animal kingdom is to get through? Also what rides or attractions would you recommend doing with the kids. Thanks so much

    Hi Amber:

    The Animal Kingdom is a very stroller friendly park. There are many wide paths. However, like any theme park or popular vacation destination, during crowded times, it could be tight to maneuver certain areas, but certainly not impossible.  There's also an unofficial and possibly impossible theory that this Park is always somehow five-degrees warmer than the other Disney theme Parks.

    I have two boys, ages 5 and 3, who love Animal Kingdom. When we visit that park, we always hit Kilimanjaro Safari, a ride through the 100-acre park savannah where we typically see rhinos, lions, giraffes, flamingos, and many other animals along the way. We also hop aboard the Wildlife Express Train and visit Rafiki's Planet Watch area, Affection Section, and Conservation Station.  My boys also spend a lot of time playing in The Boneyard, a dinosaur-themed playground. The Boneyard features a multi-level maze, climbing areas, tunnels, and a large shaded sandbox where kids can dig up fossils.

    There are also a number of shows to enjoy, such as Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo - The Musical, and Flights of Wonder.  When you get to the Park, remember to pick up of Times Guide to find times of various shows and events, including the festive Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade.

    Enjoy your vacation.
