Bring your swimsuits for the Splash Ground or prepare to traipse through the trees on an aerial adventure course that takes you above the animals.
Animal encounters and feedings, along with convenient picnic areas, will keep your entire family busy all day.

The Animal Kingdom Up Close
Though not quite on a par with the most famous zoos in the world, Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Garden has a broad selection of critters: from leopards and vultures, to camels and cheetahs. The cuddly domestic animals—such as pygmy goats, llamas, and pigs—are located in the Barnyard Buddies Children's Zoo. Kids also love the daily giraffe feedings, as well as the splash park and zip-lining.
