Attractions Characters Entertainment Hours
Menus Touring Plans    

Updated 6/30/14

I usually recommend that guests arrive at least 45 minutes prior to park opening, but Animal Kingdom can be a great park for an afternoon visit when it closes at 6:00 PM or later.  Guests that can pre-arrange their Fastpass+ choices will find this to be a pretty easy park to tour in the afternoon.  Guests that aren’t able to pre-arrange their Fastpass+ choices aren’t advised to use this plan.  However, all attractions experience really low wait times in their last hour of operation.

ktp iconThis plan was designed to be able to see Finding Nemo the Musical, Ride all the rides and meet all the characters without much backtracking or rushing around with the park closing at 6:00 PM or later.

If you aren’t using FP+ for Finding Nemo the Musical, you should plan to arrive 15 to 30 minutes early.

Guests are allowed to choose any 3 of the following attractions:

Kiosks Locations:

  • Creature Comforts – outside the store
  • Disney Outfitters – outside the store
  • Expedition Everest
  • Kali River Rapids
  • Primeval Whirl
