Animal Kingdom is one of my favourite Walt Disney World parks, behind Magic Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon. I wouldn't call myself an animal fan as such, but it's so interesting to learn about different breeds. Plus, it has some of the most exciting rides, such as Dinosaur and Expedition Everest.
The silverback gorillas are so beautiful. I had no idea just how powerful their limbs look.
The gorillas were spotted on the Maharajah Jungle Trek, which is a great way to learn about animals at your own pace. My favourite was the bat room. They were huge bats, with wing spans of 6ft. They actually slept upside down with their wings wrapped around them too- I half-thought that was a vampire myth!
Each area of Animal Kingdom is divided into three main locations and themed as such- Africa, Asia and Dinoland (although there are a few smaller areas too).
