Cretaceous Trail

There’s a spot in DinoLand U.S.A. that’s a bit off the beaten path and is home to some hidden treasures. It’s even more elusive to many guests because it’s not actually on the guide maps. But between Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama and the DINOSAUR attraction is a little area called the Cretaceous Trail. There are two entrances, but a plaque explaining the trail is posted on the Dino-Rama side.

Unfortunately, the trail doesn’t include any other signage, but you can certainly get a feeling for what the Cretaceous era might have looked, sounded, and felt like.

The trail is also now home to a character greeting location with Donald Duck. That section is usually bustling with activity, but there is some fun dino info posted and a duck-billed dinosaur to pose with alongside Donald.

You might find the Cretaceous Trail to be a good family or class spot to sit, close your eyes, and use your imaginations a bit.
