Florida is chock full of cities with activities for the wildlife-loving family, and Orlando is no exception. In Orlando, though, you have the chance to experience a mix of both the whimsical and the wild with great destinations like Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Disney has long been an American institution founded on highlighting the wonderment that can be discovered with a little imagination. Disney’s Animal Kingdom showcases the company’s uncanny ability to inject magic into the natural world. Located within world-famous Disney World, getting to the park is an easy commute with an Orlando van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals.

Over 1,700 animals from 250 different species call Disney’s Animal Kingdom home, and they’re all patiently awaiting your arrival. Animal encounters are one of the best parts of the Disney experience at this park. Rafiki’s Planet Watch, named for the colorful and wise baboon character of The Lion King, encourages conservation efforts through education.

This exhibit offers kids and parents a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Animal Kingdom’s inner workings while allowing them a chance to get a closer look at some of the creatures within the park. Rafiki’s Planet Watch features the “Conservation Station” – a hands-on, animal-care facility as well as “Affection Section” – a wonderful outdoor petting zoo.

There’s plenty more to see and experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but we want to give you the opportunity to discover your own park highlights. Take a visit to Disney World and take part in a tradition that is as American as baseball and apple pie.
