The Disney Vacation Club Resort Where Giraffe and Zebra Graze

Happy Anniversary Animal Kingdom! Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park is 15 years old today, appropriately on Earth Day. Different from its very conceptualization from any of the other Disney theme parks, Animal Kingdom has a mission to celebrate the world’s animals, wildlife, domestic, cartoon, and extinct animals alike. Animal Kingdom is also the theme and inspiration for some of the most popular Disney Vacation Club timeshares and is home to the only Disney timeshare where giraffe and zebra graze.

But what is it that makes the theme park at Animal Kingdom so special and distinctive?

First let’s start with the fact that the park is huge, (500-acres) large enough to fit the other three Orlando Disney parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios) inside its perimeter. Today’s Animal Kingdom is divided into 7 areas: Africa, Asia, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Dinoland U.S.A, Discovery Island, the Oasis, and Rafiki’s Planet Watch. Each area has its own flavor, own attractions and rides, and yet all have the committed theme of education and conservation.

If you visited Animal Kingdom during its early days, you would be very surprised at the park you find today. Vastly more developed than it was on April 22, 1998, the park is now home to some of Disney World’s most popular attractions. Two of the unique experiences at Animal Kingdom are the Wild Africa Trek, which takes place six times daily and the Sunrise Safari, which is available to guests who stay in the concierge level at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House.

Animal Kingdom Lodge, includes two sections, Kidani Village and Jambo House, with a ranging savanna surrounding much of the complex. Themed to showcase African culture, heritage, and design, Kidani Village and Jambo House offer Disney Vacation Club owners and guests the rare opportunity to view animals and big game in natural habitat, either from savanna-facing rooms  or one of the many observation areas.

Imagine enjoying your breakfast, while viewing the giraffes nibbling leaves on the trees outside your balcony. Think of sharing the moment with your  family as you relax at sunset with a view of zebra, kudu, and impala on the savanna where they graze. Disney Vacation Club timeshare at Animal Kingdom is truly unlike timeshare ownership anywhere else, and although they are often snapped up quickly, you can even find Disney timeshare resales and rentals at Animal Kingdom on our websites at resale market pricing.
