China Pavilion Dragon

14. A world tour of Epcot’s countries

Take the family on an international tour through Epcot’s World Showcase, learning about diverse cultures in a family-friendly setting. It’s great to explore the various cultural sights, sounds, architecture, and many attractions without needing to make extensive travel plans. So get ready to visit 11 countries in a single day without the need of a passport! Shop from authentic merchandise at each represented nation’s own pavilion, and even take in international cuisine as you make your rounds. In addition to the essence of authenticity presented in every country, you can always expect that touch of Disney Magic along the way with featured attractions and character visits. You’ll find Donald in a poncho and sombrero at the Mexico Pavilion, Snow White at her wishing well in Germany, Anna and Elsa in Norway (and a whole host of Disney Princesses dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, also in Norway), Mulan in China, Jasmine and Aladdin in Morocco, Marie from Aristocats and Princess Aurora in France, Alice (Alice in Wonderland) and Mary Poppins in the United Kingdom, and possibly other fun characters out and about as well.

13. Kilimanjaro Safaris

Continue your international adventure with a safari through the African savanna at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. A family-friendly experience available to all ages, Kilimanjaro Safaris stands out as one of the park’s best-loved original attractions, and the largest one too, spanning 110 acres. For this experience, you and your party will climb aboard a large safari jeep that seats up to 36 people and take off on a pathway laden with rugged terrain through the wilds of Africa. Along the way, you will encounter profuse populations of African animals, including, but not limited to: elephants, lions, giraffes, cheetahs, hippos, warthogs, wildebeests, gazelles, zebras, okapis, rhinos, crocodiles, antelopes, flamingos, ostriches, and various different kinds of birds. After the Safari, keep the animal encounters and family fun going with a trek along Pangani Trail and then a visit to Rafiki’s Planet Watch where you can learn about the veterinary science and techniques behind animal care in the park. There’s also the Affection Section—an onsite petting zoo.
