So what exactly is Disney’s Wild Kingdom? Let’s think about in musical terms. Name a song by OMD. You probably mentioned “Secret” because that was a single. Disney’s Wild Animal Kingdom is a deep album cut like “The Native Daughters of the Golden West”. It’s every bit as good as the rest, but it’s not as visited.
With so much Disney choice, what brought us here? If you’re an avid follower of Animated Meat, you know it’s near impossible for Mai and I to pass up an attraction that has animals.
If you decide to visit, expect something different from the typical Disney experience. This is largely an opportunity to look at animals. It’s really not too ride heavy. If you’re looking to go on big roller coasters, go somewhere else.
One of the big attractions at the Wild Kingdom is a revision of the Matterhorn. They decided to transpose it into the Himalayas and completely retool the ride. Worth the wait if there is one. There wasn’t the day we went.
Now considering that I am thirty-six and do not have children of my own, it would seem that I am not high on the typical Disney client list. However, as far from the demographic as I am, I was not disappointed. I think that Disney had done a remarkable job with this park and it deserves a visit.
