Lands of Animal Kingdom

Oasis at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme parkOasis

You'll feel as if you've left the hustle & bustle of central Florida and entered an entirely different kind of world! It also features guest services, lockers, and ATM, etc.

Festival of Lion King at Camp Minnie-Mickey in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme parkCamp Minnie-Mickey

Camp Minnie-Mickey is one of the smaller hubs of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Still, it's a great place for kids! Camp Minnie-Mickey features two attractions, The Festival of the Lion King, an outstanding live-action show based on the Broadway musical, and Pocahontas and Her Forest Friends featuring a variety of live animals. You'll meet many Disney favorites on the Camp Minnie-Mickey Greeting Trails too!
