disneys animal kingdom newsIt’s hard to believe, but today, Disney’s Animal Kingdom turns 18. The newest of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks, and the world’s largest theme park in the world (by acreage), opened on Earth Day, April 22, 1998.

After 18 years, the old park is more popular than ever with new hours, new attractions and new restaurants about to open next month and a massive Avatar Land slated to open next year.

Happy birthday Animal Kingdom. Looking forward to many more enjoyable visits for years to come!

    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 sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
