8. It’s not all about the rides
If skipping shows to do more rides has crossed your mind, you should know that Animal Kingdom really isn’t all about the rides. In fact, rides are really only a small part of what makes Animal Kingdom so special. The rides in Animal Kingdom are awesome, Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safaris are routine favorites among guests, but there is so much more to the park. Take the time to wander through the animal viewing trails, and take in all of the smaller details and street performances during your visit.
