While watching elephants meandering across the Sahara and tigers stalking through the jungle, you will feel miles away from Orlando. This popular park in the Walt Disney World® Resort family delights visitors young and old.

Begin your tour at Discovery Island. If you are a Disney fan, you will immediately recognize the area because of the massive Tree of Life® Attraction rising from its center. If you want to do some shopping or have a meal or snack, this area will meet your needs. Afterward, get close to the world’s smallest creatures in the 3-D film It’s Tough to be a Bug! Attraction.

In Pandora - The World of Avatar, journey to an all-new, awe-inspiring land that celebrates the magnificent power of nature. Here you can fly on the back of a mountain banshee during an exhilarating 3-D ride in the Avatar Flight of Passage™ and glide down a gentle, mysterious river and feel a sense of wonder as the full beauty of Pandora reveals itself on the Na'vi River Journey.

Come to Africa and be transported to a savannah filled with lions, elephants, giraffes and other exotic animals. This remarkable recreation of an East African village really makes you feel like you’re on a safari.

Asia® Land takes you to an equally unique imagining of a jungle village near the Himalayas. Take a trek through the jungle or splash your way through the Kali River Rapids® Attraction.

Enjoy a thrilling ride on the Expedition Everest® - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain® . The roller coaster starts off slowly and accelerates to provide a satisfyingly wild ride.

Go back in time at DinoLand U.S.A.® Area. Take part in a fossil dig or race against the impending asteroid in the ride of Dinosaur Attraction.

The theme park is open daily until mid-evening. Find it in the southwestern corner of Walt Disney World® Resort. By car, reach it in 15 minutes or less from any other part of the Disney complex. Parking is free for resort guests.
