Wilderness Explorers-Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park


Disney 2014 200

If you think you know the wilderness, Wilderness Explorers is a good way to prove it! Following after Russel and Doug from Disney/Pixar film, UP, you will have the opportunity to explore the grounds of Animal Kingdom on a fact finding mission. This wonderful adventure is a great way to see Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park in a whole new way.

There are a ton of self-guided activities for you and your family to do. These activities range from meeting with an animal specialist for facts to searching for clues in certain sections of the park. All with the help of your trusty Wilderness Explorer’s Guide Book.

Pick up your field guide from headquarters—located on the bridge between the Oasis and Discovery Island—or drop by Wilderness Explorer stops in Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia and Dinoland U.S.A. to pick one up there.

You can work alone or in a group. Each one of my kids wanted their own book to complete. With over 30 badges to complete you may need more than one day to complete. After you complete each mission, you are given a sticker badge for your book.  We only did one day at Animal Kingdom so we saved our books for the next trip.

We really like this activity because it kept our kids very occupied in the park. Typically, we only spend a half-day at Animal Kingdom but we actually spent almost the entire day there this time and it was all because of the activity. In addition, my kids really enjoyed checking the activities off of the list..they loved collecting new badges. It is really neat to be able to connect with Cast Members at each station.

Here are some activity samples:

  • Veterinary Badge – Help diagnose a sea turtle’s health issue
  • Dinosaur Badge – Join in the exploration for dinosaur fossils
  • Animal Find Badge – Check off each of the animals you see
  • Music Badge – Learn how to play an African drum pattern
  • Yeti Badge – Find Yeti artifacts and hear about the folklore

Next time you visit Animal Kingdom, be sure to sign up for the Wilderness Explorers. It is a great way to see all of Animal Kingdom Park!
