    Planning on AK for the day on Oct 25/13. ADR at Tusker House for lunch. Wondering what are the must-dos that would interest a 5yr boy (who loves the zoo and dinosaurs). Any suggestions for what could be skipped? Thanks!

    Hi there Bethany! Thanks for visiting the DIsney Parks Moms Panel with your question! My family loves Disney's Animal Kingdom Park for the beautiful landscaping, thrilling attractions, and exotic animals! My list of "must do" attractions for Disney's Animal Kingdom Park includes Kilimanjaro Safaris, DINOSAUR (minimum height requirement of 40 inches), Festival of the Lion King,  FInding Nemo - The Musical, TriceraTop Spin, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (minimum height requirement of 44 inches), and The Boneyard, a fun play area built around dinosaur fossils. You may consider skipping Kali River Rapids if the weather is cold during your visit since you will have the potential of getting soaked on this attraction. Although my children love to get drenched, I prefer not to especially when the temperatures are lower. Many guests bring ponchos with them in order to experience this popular attraction while staying dry at the same time. I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back if you have any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Bethany!
    Happy Planning,
