    My family and I will Be visiting Animal Kingdom for the 1st time this upcoming March. We are looking for recommendations for rides for my one year old, character dining and any other helpful suggestions while at Animal Kingdom! Thanks!!

    Hi, Aasha!  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Walt Disney World Resort really does have something for guests of every age, from the young to the young at heart.  I think you are going to find quite a bit for your little Mouseketeer to enjoy when you visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Be sure to take your little one to Kilimanjaro Safaris where you will take a ride through an African savanna and see live animals roaming free.  Due to the nature of the animals, no two safaris are exactly alike, but every experience is enjoyable for the entire family. 

    I would also recommend the Na'vi River Journey located in Pandora - The World of Avatar.  On this attraction, you will take a visually stunning boat ride through a bioluminescent rainforest.  This attraction is captivating for guests of all ages.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is home to some amazing live entertainment and shows that I think a 1-year old would certainly enjoy, as well.  Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical both have wonderful music and colorful sights to entertain your little one.

    Character dining at Disney's Animal Kingdom can be found at Tusker House Restaurant.  Here you will be able to visit with Donald Duck and his friends while you enjoy a delicious buffet.

    Be sure to visit the Baby Care Centers located within each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks to take care of all your little one's needs.

    See ya real soon!
