The Oasis

The Oasis is the first themed area that you encounter when you step into Animal Kingdom park. Many guests breeze through this area on their way to the attractions that lay beyond. But if you’re an animal lover, take some time to explore the Oasis Exhibits.

The Exhibits showcase some interesting and rare species of both animals and plants. Look up and around you to see beautiful orchids and tropical plants. And many of the animal habitats provide a closer look than the other walking trails in the park. Some of the species you may encounter include the rhinoceros iguana, wallaby, babirusa, and many different kinds of birds.

Plaques provide information about each animal, such as where it lives in the wild, what it eats, and special features or characteristics. The plaques also include quotes from famous naturalists and peace figures. Be on the lookout for a very special plaque near the entrance to the Oasis that marks the dedication of Animal Kingdom park. It emphasizes the wonder, beauty, and chance to learn from our natural world.
