Top 7 Tips and Secrets from a Walt Disney World Expert

Tree Of Life - Animal Kingdom

4. Animal Kingdom's "Secret" Entrance

Ever notice how long the wait to get into Animal Kingdom can become at times? You don't necessarily have to wait in those lines. As you approach the entrance, take a detour to the left instead, through the Rainforest Cafe restaurant. Exit the gift shop on the other side, and you'll find a secret entrance to the park right there in the courtyard.

If you do this at rope drop in the morning, it might just help you beat the rush to your first ride of the day.
