Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened it’s gates in 1998 as the forth theme park on Disney World property. Disney had difficulty early on identifying to guests what this park was. Early slogans including “Nahtazu” (Not a Zoo) were all over tv and radio. Perhaps due to this, enthusiasm for this park was slow despite the amazing Safari ride contained here. Other headline attractions were slow in coming and the lack of night hours made most feel this was a half-day park. Though we agree it is our least favorite of the four parks, it still has much to see and do and should not be missed.
