Disney World has changed a LOT over the past few months.
Due to social distancing policies, lines can stretch SUPER far from a ride’s entrance, and some doors to stores or other places may be designated as exit or entrance-only. Navigating your way around the parks can be more complicated now, and even rather frustrating. But, don’t worry — we’re here to help! We’ve been working on a series of maps to help you get around the parks. We’ve already shared our special, DFB maps for EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. Now, it’s Animal Kingdom’s turn!
Throughout our DFB map, you’ll see little red and green dots. The green dots are meant to indicate where the entrance to that ride, shop, or restaurant is. The red dots are meant to show you where the exits are. There are also some dotted lines with arrows on the map. These are meant to show you where the queue lines for those rides or other spots will generally extend as they spill out from the ride’s designated line space.
This map is based on our experiences in the parks, but of course, things can change at Disney World. So, during your trip, you might find that things are a bit different. But, we hope that these maps can at least give you a general sense of what’s being done right now and help make your next trip a little bit easier!
And if you need to make the map bigger, you can simply click on the image and it will show up larger in a new tab.
Alright! Let’s go through our map!
Our map starts over near Discovery Island. Here, you can see a number of dots showing the entrances and exits for the stores and other places in the area.
You can see a bit more of this general area in the map below. Looking for the entrance to Flame Tree Barbecue? Look for the green dot sort-of in the middle of the map.
Next, we’ll head over to Pandora — The World of Avatar. In the map below, you can see the walkways into and out of Pandora, as well as the entrances and exits for various spots in this land.
Pay close attention to the dotted lines showing how the lines for Avatar: Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey will generally extend. You can see how the Flight of Passage line winds through one side of the land, while the Na’vi River Journey line stretches out another way.
Next, we move over to the Africa section of the park. You can see various entrances and exits in the map below. Note how the line for Kilimanjaro Safaris will generally extend through parts of one side of the Africa area.
The map below shows the pathway and some of the spots along the walk from Africa to Asia.
We then move more into the Asia portion of the park. You can see the entrances and exits to various attractions and restaurants in this area.
Then, we make our way further into Asia and closer to Expedition Everest. The map below shows a few entrances and exits near this spot. Note how the line for Expedition Everest will generally stretch as shown by the dotted black line.
And finally, we reach DinoLand U.S.A. In this map you can see the entrances, exits, and line patterns for various spots in this land including DINOSAUR.
And that’s our map of Animal Kingdom! Again, these entrances, exits, and line patterns are subject to change. But, we hope that by taking a look at this map, you’ll be better prepared for your next trip and have more of an idea of what to expect. Be sure to bookmark this page or save it so you can come back to it later!
We’ll continue to work on making more resources for you to use to make your next Disney trip easier, more stress-free, and (of course) more magical. Stay tuned for more!
