No matter how cold it is at disney world, it will always feel 10 degrees hotter at Animal Kingdom. You cant walk out of here without breaking a sweat
Dinosaurs apparently love cheezy, midway carnivals.
Fish are found in the prehistoric area and lions can be found in camps.
No matter how many times your ride kilamanjaro safaris, you will always be looking for that same elephant and the same poachers.
You will get wet on kali river rapids, just face it!
There is a unicorn parking lot and dragons head that make up the non-existant beastly kingdomme.
There is a freaky woman on stilts that lives in the trees.
Yetis love strobe lights!
From Amanda JenkinsFlights of Wonder is what it says.

When leaving the park, the walk toward the buses seems like the longest stretch of road known to man.
When the rain of all rains comes down, it is really difficult to find a place to duck into.
A rhino has horrible eye sight and will stand in the middle of a road not caring at all that he is causing a traffic jam.
From James RaoIf you like zoos, DAK is a two-day park.

No matter how primeval some rides are, they still suck.
Dinosaurs are scary AND loud!
The music of the Lion King is great for acrobats.
All white water raft rides should have a long drop at the end.
There is a Yeti, and he loves ABBA.
From Steve WardYou can only get Jalapeno and cheese pretzel's from DAK

We're not going to make it! We're not going to make it!
The Yeti was terrifying to see when Everest started to do train tours then the Yeti stopped caring and doesnt scare people anymore!
It is tough to be a bug!
Wonder where the dragon and unicorn went?
From Mark FairleighThat Dinosaur is one awesome and underrated ride.

That the Kilimanjaro Safari was far greater than I ever expected.
Festival of the Lion King rocks!!
From Terri PierceEven mechanics at Disney World can't figure out whats wrong with your Safari Truck. And when your Safari Truck breaks down- Poachers are a lot nicer and don't steal the baby elephant, nor do you get an explanation as to how he ended up in a cage...

For a Mountain- it has a lot of technical issues.
Yetis are lazy and apparently like the club atmosphere.
Churros are very hard to find.
Dinosaurs enjoy VERY loud music.
Vines are not what they seem- They're simply divine.
Animals are great at hide and seek. Well- not so much the seek part.
Ducks love BBQ.
Trees are great places for theaters.
Shade Trees are the most magnificent things on this earth.
Lions enjoy watching gymnastics.

That you have to go to the heart of this Park to get the best chicken & ribs. ( FTBBQ )
That , unless you want to see a fight, don't throw an apple midway between two warthogs.
That if you ride Kali Rapids in winter then don't expect to dry out until you get home
That waiting in line in 90 degree heat for an hour can be tougher than being a bug.
