Disney’s Animal Kingdom Concept Art – Ride Design Warehouse

See below for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Concept Art. The Park opened in 1997 as Walt Disney World’s fourth gate, and has overtaken Disney’s Hollywood Studios in attendance. The largest Park at the Resort, Animal Kingdom, as suggested by the name, focuses on the animals of the World, and features Kilimanjaro Safaris, a large Safari attraction featuring dozens of different species of African wildlife. The Park focuses heavily on conservation, but also features a number of thrill rides and shows.
