Walt Disney World: Worst Attractions at Animal Kingdom

If you’re reading this it’s because you probably love Walt Disney World, we do too. Our panel of experts consists of myself, Pat Neistat, Bobby Burchins and Becky Wells. While most things to do and eat on the Disney campus are good, great, or fantastic some things just suck. These are our least favorite attractions at Animal Kingdom.

*Note these are listed alphabetically*

Na’vi River Journey

“The Shaman animatronic is fantastic, if there wasn’t a line of 90+ minutes here consistently this would actually be on my underrated list. But since you have to either use one of your presciosu Fastpasses or wait in a long-ass line just to see the only animatronic on the whole boat ride – fuck that. The bioluminescent led effects are cool but honestly just google EDM party video, hit mute and play spa music over the top, same shit.” -Steve Rhodes

Rafiki’s Planet Watch/Wildlife Express Train

“I have nothing good to say about this attraction. On top of it being a boring conservation center, it’s completely out of the way. I find it to be a complete waste of time. By the way, most folks live by a local zoo and a ticket to Animal Kingdom is too damn expensive to waste time milling around looking at a damn petting zoo. I won’t ever ride that damn train again.” – Pat Neistat

TriceraTop Spin

“TriceraTop Spin is pretty much also poor man’s Dumbo. I don’t love DinoLand USA anyway, but really the only reason I didn’t choose Na’vi River Journey (which is garbage with a higher price tag) is its detail, and even this is debatable. Because DinoLand USA is purposefully themed exactly how it appears: a giant carnival. Hot, old/broken AF, with questionable games. Pandora is themed impeccably and is just as immersive. However, it does at least offer shade. Yes, the dark ride at the hottest park barely edged out TriceraTop Spin/Dumbo III.” – Becky Wells

“F*** you Joe Rohde and your stupid dream catcher earring. I can find some enjoyment in Primeval Whirl, but you literally said “whatever, f*** you, it’s Disney World, you’ll ride it”. The sad part is you were right about some of us. If not for Pandora and Everest I would consider leading a revolution.” -Bobby Burchins
