Flame Tree BBQ! Seriously, my hands down favorite counter service location in the entire resort. The food, the location and scenery while eating, everything. Love it!

I can only echo other posters here: the strong feeling that you're in a different country when you visit each of the different continental sections...the amazing walkways and the brilliant habitats for the animals (good for the visitor and the animal)...Dinosaur, Expedition Everest (and the Yeti Museum you go through in the queue)...Flame Tree BBQ. It truly doesn't feel like a theme park. LOVE it!

I have really come to love AK after having children. And I realize just how much there is to do there!

I love so many things, but lately I am really loving the trail. So much to see, learn, and do!

I used to think AK was a 1/2 day park. Now, It really is at very least, a full day if not 2 days to do every single thing, see it all, discover, etc.

AK has the feel of a market place to me; I love Everest, Dinosaur and eating at Flametree BBQ with the birds. We also have "adopted" a few of the gorilla's...baby Lily is one we keep an eye on.

I just hope you are willing to share baby Lily with the rest of us!! We love spending time with the gorillas and the tigers. AK is a very relaxing and slower-paced park for us. It's become our favorite.

Whenever I am supposed to be running for fastpasses at Mt Everest/Yeti attraction I become transfixed by the "monkeys" (can't remember proper name.) I just stand there in the morning, watching them swing and play and hear the wonderful music in the back ground and am transfixed.

I LOVE the exotic, natural, beautiful feel.

LOVE AK and AKL.

I can't really do more than echo things that have already been said, but I *love* Animal Kingdom and easily spend a full day, if not more, here each trip. I love that because of the animals the experience is always slightly different. I love the attention to detail that is everywhere you look. I love the sights and sounds and the way the park smells so green and earthy in places. I love all the different plants.

The diversity is certainly enlightening. I love the rush of going on Expedition Everest but then going to KS and being so close to animals since I never go to the zoo. I also do appreciate the fresh fruit at the stand outside KS

When it is hot, the tigers may be in the pool. I love it, that large cats just laying in the water, chilling.

Not to be a downer, but we remember how much we liked the Tarzan show better than the Nemo show.

Makes sense to me. We got a Disney recipe book that has the recipe for the Flame Tree BBQ sauce. The recipe works at home!

I like the immersion in the different areas. You can't see the other areas like you can in Epcot.

Despite the Yeti being down, I like Expedition: Everest. I enjoy all the shows, too.

Everything about Asia. I think someone already mentioned the prayer flags tied to the trees. I love them, too. This section of the park sends my thoughts to places exotic. I could spend a very long time on the Maharajah Jungle Trek.

Nemo Show. Hands down the best show. So good, I can't watch the movie anymore as it just isn't that good compared to the musical.

How different it is than every other park. The atmosphere of AK is downright outstanding. While you also get that feel at MK, DHS, and Epcot, there is just something about AK. I love the different food choices and everything. Especially Yak and Yeti. Very Delicious.
