OTHER WALT DISNEY WORLD
OTHER DISNEY THEME
The Boneyard is an interactive playground for children, similar to Honey I Shrunk the Kids at the Disney-MGM Studios. It is located on your left as cross under the 50-foot-tall brachiosaurus and enter DinoLand U.S.A.
Your kids can discover the bones of Tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and others from the dinosaur age.
As the kids enter, kind of off to the right behind the jeep, is a set of fossilized bones set into the (wall) side of the hill. Knock on the rib bones to play a note. This is called the xylobone. If you can't find it ask a Cast Member for help (Mike Sluss)
There's no time limit at this attraction - the hardest part may be coaxing your child out of the play area!
It can get very hot in The Boneyard area when temps are high, so be sure and bring water in for you and your children!
"We went to the Boneyard to let the younger children dig for bones & play. This probably was a big mistake, since the playground is extremely hot during the day in the middle of the summer. After about 15 minutes, we all left...exhausted. (The Belcher Family)"

If you have younger children, head over to the Boneyard in DinoLand. Once inside the play area, go to the upper level and cross over the Dinosaur bridge, which goes across the entrance to DinoLand. On the far side is a wonderful shaded "archeological dig" complete with large fans and fun music. The parents can relax on the rocks while the kids dig up bones in the large dig site. This area is filled with granular pebbles that are very smooth, cool to the touch, and best of all, fall off easily when one stands up! (Sam Walls)
Lots of photo ops so be sure to bring your camera with you.
There are no characters associated with this attraction.
Check your guide map for character meet and greets in other areas of Animal Kingdom.
no dining in the immediate area of The Boneyard. However, the Dino
Diner is just before you cross under the Dinosaur and has quick snacks.
Restaurantasaurus is also in DinoLand U.S.A. and offers
a character breakfast (better have a priority seating) and a McDonald's
The only shop in DinoLand U.S.A. is Chester and Hester's Dinosaur Treasures, themed to be a road-side tacky souvenir store. You can find logo merchandise for the Dinosaur attraction, lots and lots of soft plastic dinosaurs that your kids will probably want but they won't fit in any suitcase :), and of course lots of t-shirts, keychains, buttons, postcards, and more.
Casts were taken from real dinosaur bones found in places like Utah’s Dinosaur National Park, then reproduced in a plastic-cement which looks and feels real.
The Boneyard sign is a replica of a Stegosaurus's shoulder blade.
