In the part of America where runaway trains driven by mad professors hurtle you through the air and where Jaws is liable to attack your boat, a zoo could be in danger of being seen as sedate or mundane in comparison. Disney didn’t let this defeat them, bringing the zoo and theme park together to create Animal Kingdom. Covering more than 500 acres, making it the largest Disney theme park in the world, Animal Kingdom is a great way to mix some education and natural wonder with the usual theme park spills and thrills.

Although the park has been met with criticism from various animal welfare organizations, the park is respectful of its animals, though the population is mostly from the more “glamorous” species - you’re unlikely to see a goat for instance. The rides are what you would expect from a Florida theme park and the dinosaur part of the park is a nice feature for a “zoo”. Animal Kingdom will take your breath away, but maybe not due to the diversity of animals.
