The Boneyard is an interactive play area located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. It is a unique attraction that provides children with an opportunity to explore and play in a dinosaur-themed archaeological dig site.

The Boneyard is designed to resemble a paleontological dig site, complete with fossils, dinosaur bones, and excavation equipment. Aspiring young paleontologists can engage in hands-on activities like digging for dinosaur bones in the sand and brushing off dirt to uncover fossils.

The play area features tunnels, slides, climbing structures, and bridges, allowing kids to explore and have fun while pretending to be archaeologists searching for dinosaur remains. The Boneyard provides a safe and entertaining space for children to burn off some energy and indulge their curiosity and imagination.

Parents and guardians can relax on nearby shaded benches while keeping an eye on their little ones as they play. It’s a great spot for families to take a break from the park’s attractions and enjoy some downtime together.

The Boneyard is located in DinoLand U.S.A. within Disney’s Animal Kingdom, making it a natural fit with the park’s overall theme of celebrating the wonders of nature, wildlife, and prehistoric creatures.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other site isDMR.
