It's easy to overlook this opening day Animal Kingdom attraction thanks to how you need to take a train from the Africa section to reach it. Those willing to take that trek will find enough to do to fill hours in the park.

The Conservation Station lets guests watch veterinarians treat the animals. Kids will love the Affection Station, where they can pet and visit some animals like deer while there's a nice walking trail. To top it off, a small section shows how Disney animators bring animals to life in their films. Animal Kingdom guests are missing out not taking this trek. 

It's Tough to Be A Bug

With the announced changes for Animal Kingdom, time is running out to catch this original opening day attraction. Opening before A Bug's Life came out, it's an old-styled mix of 3-D movie, Audio-Animatronics and special effects bringing the film's characters to life. 

The nine-minute film runs quickly but packs in plenty of jokes, sharp humor, and experiences you can't find elsewhere. It'll be replaced soon, so guests should check this gem out while they can. 

The World Showcase Movie Trio

Even before World Showcase got bigger rides, these three unique films could be overlooked, which is a shame. Oh, Canada is a fun 360-degree film showing the Great White North with updated visuals and some nice humor. Reflections of China likewise shows China in some stunning 360-degree takes that sell the power of the nation.

Then there's Impressions de France, the only Epcot opening-day attraction that's still around. The wide-screen look at France retains its power forty years later, so all three are worth standing around to view.
