My kids and I go to Orlando almost every Spring Break, and have for the last 10 years. Animal Kingdom is always one of our favorite parks! We will stay from open to close but take it easy while there. You can do the park in probably 3/4 of the day. So we make it a leisurely trip.
We enjoy the laid back atmosphere. It is nowhere near as hectic as Magic Kingdom, and is even more laid back than EPCOT. The Kilimanjaro Trail is a fun tour. They drive you around and show you a lot of the animals out in the habitat. Some days are amazing, some not so much. It depends on the time of day, weather, and mood of the animals. But at least you know it is a real trip not a bunch of animals pre-staged by the tracks.
Expedition Everest was added a few years ago and it is a great coaster! We ride it at least twice each visit.
We spend way too much time on the Maharajah Jungle Trek! It is so pretty and has so many amazing buildings and animals to see. Between it and the other self guided walk, the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, our day is booked up!
If you are looking for lots of rides and coasters this is may not be your park. But it has enough rides and other activities that I highly recommend this park!
