    Hi Moms! Can you tell me what the best things are to see & do at Animal Kingdom with kids ages 7 & 5? We've been before but I know we haven't experienced everything. Thanks!

    Absolutely try Kilimanjaro Safaris. This is my favorite attraction in Disney's Animal Kingdom. Board an open air vehicle for an adventure through the savannah spotting zebras, hippos, a lion or two, giraffes, and more.

    Check out a show or two while in the park. Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo- the Musical are wonderful. Inside the Tree of Life view It's Tough to Be a Bug in 3D.  Flights of Wonder is a different type of show that features live birds.

    Your children will love the Boneyard. This playground has slides galore and a dig pit where kids can uncover dinosaur bones.

    Hop on the Wildlife Express to Rafiki's Planet Watch. Here you may pet goats and llamas and check out the Conservation Station to learn about animal care.

    Stroll down one or more of the trails in the park that lead you by gorillas, lemurs, kangaroos, tigers, Komodo dragons and more.

    Eat at character meal at Tusker House. Try an exotic hot tea at the Royal Anandapur Tea Company. 

    If your children do not like thrilling rides or do not meet the height requirement consider using Rider Swap at Expedition Everest. This is a fun, phenomenal roller coaster with a Yeti surprise.

    There is so much more- Primeval Swirl, Character meet and greets, TriceraTop Spin, Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade, etc. I hope you can fit all the fun in! Enjoy!
