    I am trying to map and time out our day at animal kingdom. To make sure I am giving my family enough time to just enjoy being at the park and not rushing place to place, how long are the attractions at the park?

    Hi there, Theresa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a spectacular place and I love that you’re thinking about really taking it all in with a more relaxed pace.

    Theresa, start with this helpful video from Moms panelists Wilma and Jason about how they plan their days at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s not possible to provide exact attraction lengths because it varies depending on factors like lines, crowds, and other unexpected variables. Many of the rides post estimated wait times at the entrance to the queue, which are also posted in the My Disney Experience App; you can access the app while in the park to help you to decide where to go next. This list of attractions might help you prioritize and sketch out a flexible plan for your day. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is richly themed and filled with pop-up performances and surprises, so I suggest building in flexibility so you can really take in those magical moments.

    Make sure you take your time as you walk through each area of the park and enjoy its unique sights, sounds, smells, and tastes. As an added bonus, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is legendary among park fans for having delicious dining locations, particularly if you’re looking for unique options.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
