This 3 hour guided tour delves into how the animals are housed and cared for. Chat with the animal keepers and vets about topics such as animal behaviours, nutrition and medicine. You’ll see enclosures, labs, and feeding areas. You do often get the chance to stroke a rhino but tours vary from day to day and often end with a drive through of the Kilimanjaro Safari.
Get up close to a variety of spectacular and majestic animals in their backstage habitats. Talk with animal keepers as you visit the Animal Nutrition Center, explore the state-of-the-art veterinary hospital and discover other backstage facilities. Learn the story of how every day 3 tons of food is prepared, distributed and fed to the animal residents of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.
No photography will be allowed backstage.
The 3-hour Wild By Design Tour tells the story of how the creative wizards at Walt Disney Imagineering meticulously transformed Florida wetlands into the exotic and untamed landscapes of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. There are no behind the scenes visits as part of the tour.
