[Disney Vacation Planner]
|At A Glance
||The entrance way to the Animal
Kingdom the Oasis provides a quiet retreat between the entrance
plaza and the rest of the park.
The Oasis is designed to be an entrance to all the
"lands" of Disney's Animal Kingdom, the oasis is a tiny kingdom,
in and of itself.
Tropical gardens and scads of animals greet guests
as they enter the park. Wild deer, macaws, ant-eaters and tree
kangaroos inhabit the grounds.
Waterfalls, grottos, streams and meadows promise
excitement and adventure around every corner.
Visitors can find scarlet ibis nesting in grounds
of The Oasis and you just might catch a glimpse of the two-toed
sloth, if your timing is right.
The Oasis also houses the usual assortment of theme
park amenities including rest rooms, guest services, automated
teller machine, drinking fountains, gift shop, lockers and stroller/wheel
chair rental stand.
It's also one of the locations that often plays host
to one of the Disney Talking Trash-Cans.
The Oasis offers a very pleasant natural setting
for both entering and exiting the park. Rushing through to get
to "the lands" will mean missing some of the quieter, more pristine
animal settings of Disney's newest park.
Dining and Shopping
The Oasis is also home to The
Rainforest Cafe, along with Garden
Gate Gifts and the Outpost
Shop two all-encompassing gift/photo shops where guests can
drop off film to be developed and pick up T-shirts, stuffed animals
and other souvenirs.
