Slow down, don’t move too fast. We’re going to make The Oasis last…

OK, maybe not words to a new great song, but the idea is a sound one: on your way to enjoying the incredible Animal Kingdom park at Walt Disney World, don’t bypass this initial scene that was carefully created by Disney Imagineers to gently transition you from the world outside to the educational, entertaining, and emotional journey you will be taken on as you experience the animal kingdom, both real and imagined.

Viewing the park as a nice meal, The Oasis represents the amuse-bouche of the park, a unique element among the Disney parks. While you’re only steps from the Park’s thrilling attractions, The Oasis begins to gradually immerse and introduce you to the sights, sounds, and soul of this park. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the sound of bird calls, waterfalls, and occasional laughter, this space can easily lull you into a state of relaxation. That’s the idea. And now you’re more ready to connect with the wondrous nature of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
