Our virtual Animal Kingdom tour will take you on the safari in Africa, up to the top of Everest in Asia, and back to the time of the Dinosaurs.

Virtual Walt Disney World Series

We have compiled virtual tours for all 4 theme parks as a fun way to explore and enjoy the parks when you can’t be there. Because the majority of these videos are from the guest’s point of view (POV), they can be even more fun viewed through VR headsets for your phone, or by projecting it on a wall or viewing on a big screen tv.

You can even get creative and make ride vehicles to sit in and add your own special effects. Have fun with it!!

And because it’s all virtual, you can hop from park to park as much as you want. Here are the links to the other parks:

Disney’s Virtual Animal Kingdom Walk Through

Take a stroll around the entire park, starting with a great view of the Tree of Life, and heading through Dinoland, Asia, Africa, and Pandora – The World of Avatar.

Discovery Island

Home to the Tree of Life, Oasis Trails, and lots of shops and dining options, Discovery Island is the hub of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

It’s Tough to Be a Bug!

Be an honorary bug and learn about the world of insects at It’s Tough to be a Bug! This 3D show has some 4D effects you won’t get to enjoy at home. But it’s a lot less scary for the little kids virtually.

Viva Gaia Street Band

Throughout the day, the Viva Gaia Street Band performs and invites guests to join in on the fun!

Pandora – The World of Avatar

Pandora – The World of Avatar is the newest land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It boasts one of Walt Disney World’s most popular attractions, and the land gives park-goers a reason to stay and explore after the sun goes down.

Avatar Flight of Passage

Experience what it feels like to fly on the back of a banshee as you swoop through the forests and floating mountains of Pandora. This ride is meant to be viewed through 3D glasses, but it still looks pretty good in this video.

Na’vi River Journey

This relaxing boat ride takes you through the bioluminescent world of the jungles of Pandora, where you meet a very impressive animatronic Na’vi shaman.

Pandora Drummers – Swotu Waya

Enjoy the beat being layed down by the Pandora Drummers. Kids can play many of these drums when the drummers are not there.

Pandora Rangers

The Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to the Kiliminjaro Safaris, the Patagani Jungle Exploration Trail, and the Festival of the Lion King show.

Tam Tam Drummers

Guests who venture into Asia may find themselves in the perils of Everest or the Kali Rapids, or maybe even come up close to tigers.

Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

This is my favorite roller coaster in Walt Disney World. The combination of height, speed, and the darkness when you pass through the mountain all combine for the perfect thrill ride.

Kali River Rapids

Take a raft journey along the whitewater of this Asian jungle, as geysers and 20-foot plunge threaten to get you soaked! We found a 360-degree video to really immerse you in this ride.

Maharajah Jungle Trek

Walk along the jungle trails to find bats, tigers, and more.

Bollywood Beats

Get swept up in an exhilarating Indian dance experience, featuring traditional forms and show-stopping musical numbers.

Up! A Great Bird Adventure

See some of the world’s most exotic birds during this show starring the fun-loving pals from Disney and Pixar’s Up.

Dinoland U.S.A.

Dinoland is a carnival-like atmosphere in the time right before the demise of the dinosaurs. You can eat, play in the boneyard, test your luck at carnival games, and ride some wacky rides.


In this dark thrill ride, you travel back in time to right before the meteor strike that wiped out the dinosaurs in an attempt to bring one back with you.

Primeval Whirl

This spinning coaster is a wackier time machine themed ride. It’s one of those rides we think is better at night with all the lights on.

TriceraTops Spin

Climb aboard a Triceratop and ride around and control its height and tilt it forward and back.

Finding Nemo – The Musical

Watch the story of Finding Nemo on stage in this Broadway-style show with elaborate puppets.
