With many attractions available in the Disney World areas, any Orlando attraction vacation planning should be done before arrival. Planning includes reviewing different attractions to discover what each Orlando theme park offers. Visiting Animal Kingdom theme park is a must. Though, designed for younger children, the older children enjoy it too, as well as any animal enthusiast. Riding through the Kilimanjaro Safari to see wild animals is thrilling.

Viewing the animals first thing in the morning is best. Visits during cooler weather will make it possible to spot animals. The animals, becoming hotter throughout the day, will start looking for shadier areas; making them less visible.

Through the use of dancers, acrobats, puppets and animated backdrops, giant Nemo, Dory and Marlin share the story about their trip to Sydney and back in order to save Nemos’ dad.

Another musical, based on an original Disney animation, is Festival of the Lion King, based on The Lion King. This show is a favorite, must-see, among all ages.

The classic story is performed with acrobatic production while each song, made famous from the movie, and the costumes become more colorful as the scenes change. The less waiting timed shows are early morning and in the evening. Scheduling your Disney World trip can have you waiting less time in lines.
