Welcome to Disney's Animal KingdomŪ Theme Park! This site outlines services and facilities available for Guests with disabilities who visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. When you arrive at the Park, you can request the weekly Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park guidemap, which contains additional information and an entertainment schedule.

Theme Park Parking (Standard parking rates apply)

Guests with the ability to walk short distances and step up onto the courtesy trams should park in the main parking lot of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The courtesy tram will transport Guests to the Entrance Complex. Parking for Guests with mobility disabilities, or who are traveling with personal wheelchairs, is available adjacent to the Entrance Complex at each of the four Parks. Guests should inquire at the Auto Plaza for directions on parking options.

Shops and Restaurants

Most food and merchandise locations in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park are accessible to Guests with disabilities. Cast Members are available to assist when necessary. Some counter-service locations have narrow queues formed by railings that may be difficult for Guests using wheelchairs. At these locations we suggest that a member of the party order and transport the food, or contact a host or hostess for assistance.

First Aid

The Disney's Animal Kingdom First Aid Station is located behind Creature Comforts in Safari Village.

  • Safari Village opposite Flame Tree Barbecue

Stamina or Endurance Concerns

Some Guests may be concerned that they do not have the stamina to wait in our queues. We strongly suggest that these visitors consider using a wheelchair or electric convenience vehicle, as the distance between our attractions is much greater than the length of our queues.

Smoking Restrictions

For everyone's comfort, smoking at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is permitted in designated areas only. Please refer to Park signage for designated smoking locations, or ask a Cast Member for assistance.
