Tigers, Gorillas, and Zebras, Oh My! Follow Along With Our Day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Heeeeello there! (Name that Disney pre-show reference!)

Animal Kingdom

Today we spent the day in what is perhaps Disney’s most beautiful park, Animal Kingdom! We checked out the latest news, tried some snacks, and hit up our favorite rides. We’re sorry we didn’t take you with us, but to make up for it, we’re sharing pictures and videos from our wild day!

We started out with some animal encounters over on the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail. Wave hello to our new friend!

Hey, it’s a gorilla!

We also spotted (or striped) a zebra. It was definitely posing for the camera!

Over on the Maharajah Jungle Trek, we got to see a tiger in action, which was a really cool animal interaction!


We decided to head over to Rafiki’s Planet Watch, so we boarded the Wildlife Express. They added barriers to the benches to seat more guests.

Once we made it over to Conservation Station, we just had to stop by the Affection Section. Molly made a new goat friend, his name is Bueller!

Back in Asia, we stopped to do a little photography and discovered some natural-born models. These guys were hamming it up!

AND we got to see some beautiful magic made by Disney Cast Members — they’re so creative!

Then we stopped to check out what may be the coolest. Magic. Shot. Ever.

By the time we got to Dinoland, U.S.A., it was time for a snack. Pick up this Valentine’s Day-themed treat from Dino-Bite!


We stopped for a ride on DINOSAUR, and we wanted to show you this fun Easter egg! McDonald’s was the original sponsor for this attraction, and in the queue, you’ll find a nod to that with three red, yellow, and white pipes. On those pipes are the chemical formulas for ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise.

For our last attraction of the day, we headed back to Africa to jump on Kilimanjaro Safaris. The animals were particularly active at this time in the evening!

In fact, the giraffes walked right up close to our safari truck!

Look how close!

We had a great day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and we can’t wait to head back to the park soon! Stay tuned to AllEars for more updates on the Disney parks!

  1. Hi Molly,
    It was great to see you. I was getting worried because you hadn’t posted in a
    few days. I love Animal Kingdom and have even stayed at the Animal Kingdom Resort.
    Thanks for the fun trip.
