This is definitely the year to be a visitor at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. With the new Rivers of Light nighttime water pageant that opened last week to the hotly anticipated Pandora- The World of Avatar which will begin welcoming guests the end of May, its easy to lose sight of the fact that there are also over 1500 animals that make this park their home. However, Disney recently announced a new Animal Kingdom offering that makes it easy to tap into the educational and zoological side of this spectacular park with their Caring for Giants Tour.
This 60-minute experience provides visitors with a birds-eye view into the life of the theme parks largest residents: a pack of Disney pachyderms. Visitors will find out about the steps that Cast Members take to care for the herd and cultural representatives will be on hand to tell visitors about the conservation efforts that are vital in ensuring the preservation of wild elephant populations throughout their homelands. With guests getting as close as 80 feet away from these amazing creatures it provides a remarkable vantage point that visitors won’t soon forget.
The tour is open to anyone aged 4 and up and costs $30 per person. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by and adult. Tours are offered several times throughout the day between 10am and 4:30pm and depart from the Animal Experiences booth which is located across from the Kiliminjaro Safaris entrance in the Africa section of the park.
Reservations can be booked online or by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.
