    Which rides in Animal Kingdom snap your picture

    Hi Takenya!

    It sounds like you're ready for a fun visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! The massive, environmentally-friendly park covers 580 acres, and features exhibits with hundreds of species of wild animals. It's one of my favorite places to visit on Walt Disney World Resort property. I love stepping through The Oasis, and cresting the hill to see the majestic Tree of Life. The iconic symbol in the center of the park has the shapes of over 300 animals carved into it! I love to look at the tree from lots of different angles, and try to count how many different animals I can spot. The queue line to the It's Tough to be a Bug! attraction is especially cool, as it winds through the trunk of the tree and Guests are able to see the carvings up close. 

    Animal Kingdom Park has lots of fun attractions for Guests to enjoy, and your photo will be taken during two of them:

    1) Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain - one of the most thrilling rides in all of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, Guests board a speeding train to zip through the Himalayan mountains on a quest to find the mythical Yeti. You'll encounter a broken track, and even a backwards plummet before you make your way out of his lair. (Pro tip: After the train comes to a stop at the end of the backwards drop, you'll see a projection of the Yeti on the rocks on your right. When the train moves forward, get ready - the camera will be on your right as you drop from the cave.)

    2) DINOSAUR - Guests board a Time Rover and travel back to the prehistoric age, specifically the Cretaceous Period, in a race to rescue an Iguanadon. Uh oh, there's also a giant meteor that's about to destroy the planet, so the clock is ticking! Will you make it back in time? (Pro tip: The scary Carnotaurus will make several appearances during this ride, but right after you dodge the meteor shower - "Right! Left! Right! Left!", you'll get a chance for a photo when he appears on your right. )

    I hope this helps, and you're ready to say CHEESE at just the right moment on these fun attractions. The photos will appear in the Photos section of your My Disney Experience account, and should show up within 24 hours.

    I hope you have a wild time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park!
