My favorite ride in Disney is the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail in Animal Kingdom. This self-guided walking tour takes you through a lush African rainforest where you can see incredible animal exhibits up close. It’s a great way to escape the crowds and feel like you’re really exploring the wild. Plus, there are hidden Mickeys throughout the trail if you keep your eyes peeled. I recommend going early in the morning when the park opens to avoid the crowds and get the best views of the animals.
After exploring the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail, head over to Harambe Market for some delicious African-inspired cuisine. I recommend trying the grilled chicken skewer with green papaya-carrot slaw and black-eyed pea salad from the Kitamu Grill. It’s a flavorful and filling snack that will keep you energized for the rest of your day at Animal Kingdom.
