Now, let’s analyze these extremely intriguing statistics:

  • The Walt Disney World Resort is home to the four largest Disney Parks ever constructed (the acreage of Shanghai Disneyland is currently unknown, as the park is still under construction)
  • Animal Kingdom, the largest Disney theme park in the world, has the fewest number of rides (not including animal exhibits and shows)
  • Currently, the two smallest Disney theme parks in the world (Disney California Adventure and Hong Kong Disneyland) are the most popular.
  • Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Park Paris are nearly identical in size.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios is larger than the Magic Kingdom by 12 acres. Surprising, huh?
  • The Magic Kingdom in Florida is 57 acres larger than Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
  • Tokyo Disney Sea is exactly in the middle of the list, making it the “average” Disney theme park (though this is obviously not the case! )
  • The difference in size between the Magic Kingdom and Epcot is 158 acres.
  • Disney California Adventure, Hong Kong Disneyland, Walt Disney Studios Paris, Disneyland Park, and Tokyo DisneySea could ALL fit inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Is EPCOT or Animal Kingdom better?

Epcot or Animal Kingdom? – The Short Answer – Epcot is ideal for adults and guests who enjoy eating, drinking, and experiencing different cultures. Animal Kingdom is ideal for visitors who enjoy animals, rides, and live performances. Epcot and Animal Kingdom are both full-day parks with an abundance of activities. Both parks appear frequently on our extensive list of Disney World must-dos.

The length – Disney World is vastly larger than Universal Studios at 43 square miles, and it would take several days to visit all six parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and two water parks.840 acres comprise Universal’s three parks: Universal Studios (including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter), Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay water park.

How Large Is Magic Kingdom Compared to Animal Kingdom?

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is four times the size of the Magic Kingdom and nearly twice the size of EPCOT, but most of it is only accessible through guided tours or attractions. In 1989, shortly after the opening of what is now Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Imagineer Jim Rohde proposed a zoological park to then-CEO Michael Eisner.

Disney made its Animal Kingdom plans public in 1995, and the park opened three years later. Even though Disney copied Busch Gardens’ recipe in large part, Animal Kingdom has more than its fair share of innovations. To begin with, there is ample space, allowing for panoramic views worthy of National Geographic or Discovery Channel.

Then there are enclosures that appear natural, with few or no barriers between you and the animals. The operative word is, of course, obvious: The bamboo fence separating you from the gorilla is actually a set of steel rods embedded in concrete. Animal Kingdom has received mixed reviews since its 1998 opening.

  1. Consistently lauded are the animal exhibits, architecture, and landscaping, but guests also criticize the park’s layout, in particular the necessity of traversing Discovery Island to reach the themed areas, as well as its crowded walkways and lack of shade.
  2. However, despite its flaws, Animal Kingdom is effective.

It is a place to linger and enjoy. Despite the fact that Disney, with its crowds, lines, and regimentation, has trained its theme park guests to do the exact opposite, many visitors intuitively understand that Animal Kingdom must be approached differently than, say, Magic Kingdom.

The best aspects of Animal Kingdom are its animals, nature trails, and cast members. The Wilderness Explorers scavenger hunt is part of our Animal Kingdom touring plan described on page 571. It ties together all of the park’s best features. It’s a lot of fun to play, and you may learn something in the process.

Pandora—The World of Avatar is the newest “land” at Animal Kingdom. It concludes an expansion project begun in 2011 when Disney signed James Cameron, director of Avatar, to a development deal. Avatar Flight of Passage is a futuristic flight simulator, and Na’vi River Journey is a slow-moving boat ride through colorful forests and swamps.

Flight of Passage is ranked as one of the best attractions at any Disney or Universal theme park in the United States by readers. During the pandemic, many Animal Kingdom shows, character meet-and-greets, and dining locations were closed, and no reopening date was announced. The majority, if not all, of these should return after widespread administration of an effective vaccine.

We’ve updated the Animal Kingdom touring plan to reflect the attractions and restaurants that were closed at the time of publication, as noted in this chapter.
