Animal Kingdom Touring Plan with Under 5’s

Meet Mickey Mouse in These Unexpected Places at Disney World

This Animal Kingdom Touring Plan with Under 5’s has been designed to take into account the fact that we have small children and will not want to cross the park very often to get from ride to ride. It also takes into account our starting point at Tusker House and the time of shows on that day.

Tip: Pick up a Park Map and Entertainment Schedule on the way in.
