Good news! Animal Kingdom is NOT a tiering fastpass park:) Rides you need to get Fastpasses for are Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safari and Kali River Rapids. I find this park to be a challenge for Fastpasses for a couple of reasons. First, I love Kalie River Rapids but I do not want to walk around wet for a long time. Second, I like the idea of the Kilimanjaro Safari at Sunset or dusk to get a whole new look at the animals. Thirdly, with the wonderful show choices at Animal Kingdom it does become a challenge to fit them in and the rides as well. REMEMBER, know what rides/attractions are important for your group. We found that attending the first Festival of the Lion King show of the day really helped as it was not as crowded and the lined grew throughout the day. Which show is your favorite at Animal Kingdom??
