Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World opening April 22, 1998. I made my first visit in December 1998. Below is a video and some still images of my first visit to the park on December 21, 1998. The video includes a pre-sunrise departure, arriving at the park, a couple views as I headed to Africa, then most of my first Kilimanjaro Safari experience.
Here are some still images from the video:
