Disney's Animal Kingdom Details-at-a-Glance

The following information is provided in alphabetical order...

ATM Locations

As at the Studios, the only ATM I'm aware of is located OUTSIDE the park, to the far right of the turnstiles.

Baby Care Center and First Aid Location

These facilities are located on Discovery Island on the left-hand side as you enter the park, facing the Tree of Life (near the Creature Comforts shop).

Camera Supplies

There is no specific "camera center" in Animal Kingdom, like there is in the other parks, but most shops can sell you film, and there are several that offer film processing (if you really want to pay Disney prices to get your pictures developed).  There is also a film/camera supplies "pushcart" in Harambe, just outside of the queue for the safari.


Animal Kingdom holds hours that cater to the animals that actually live in this park.  It opens at about 7:00am (pretty early, but worthwhile if you want to see some animals moving about before they move under the shade for the day).  The park closes typically about 7:00-8:00pm depending on the crowds.

Locker Location

Lockers are located near Guest Relations, just inside the park entrance to the left.  Lockers cost $5.00 per day, $2.00 of which is a refundable deposit on the key.  The great thing is, you can access your locker as many times as you wish during the day.  Furthermore, if you go to a different park that same day, and show your receipt for the locker you rented here, you can simply put down another $2.00 deposit for a key to a locker at that park (which, again, is refundable upon return).

There are additional lockers located outside the park, to the right of the turnstiles, but I don't know if they are re-usable like the ones inside the park.

Lost & Found

Lost and Found is located near the Baby Care Center, on Discovery Island on the left-hand side as you enter the park, facing the Tree of Life (near the Creature Comforts shop).


Parking costs $7.00 at the Animal Kingdom parking lot, but is free to all WDW resort hotel guests.   Trams are available to cart you to the entrance, if you're unfortunate enough to be parked a great distance away.  Your receipt will be honored at any of the other parking lots at the other WDW parks, if you choose to drive to a different park later in the day (or leave and return to Animal Kingdom, for that matter).

Strollers & Wheelchairs

Strollers, Wheelchairs, and electric scooters are available for rent at the right-hand side of the park entrance plaza as you enter the turnstiles.

Tip Board Location

A pair of tip boards are located on Discovery Island.
