    DinoLand U.S.A. Overview

    DinoLand U.S.A. is not only a trip back in time; it’s a complete departure from what you find in the rest of the Animal Kingdom.

    The Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond show is not to be missed. What this show has to do with dinosaurs will always be a mystery, but be sure to include Nemo in your itinerary. You'll be glad you did.

    As you enter DinoLand, you go under a 50-foot tall skeleton of a Brachiosaurus that spans the “OldenGate Bridge.” To your left is “The Boneyard.” This playground is a fun destination. With fossils waiting to be unearthed and creatures to climb; it’s a great spot for kids to let off some steam. While here, look for the Xylobone to create a unique musical tune.

    You can’t miss Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama. With lights flashing and bells ringing, this prehistoric midway is sure to get your attention. You can try your luck at the Fossil Fun games that have a decidedly dinosaur twist.

    Think Dumbo as a dino, and you’ll know what’s in store for you at the "Triceratop Spin." Designed to resemble a giant toy top, this ride spins around while you control the up and down movement of your "dinosaur."

    Be prepared for some intense action if you’re brave enough to try Dinosaur. You’ll first tour the Dino Institute with your host Bill Nye, the Science Guy. From here, you go on a mission to find and bring back the last iguanodon. You’re strapped into your vehicle and sent on your way. Soon you find yourself careening on an out of control wild ride while dodging meteors and fearsome dinosaurs.

    Guests who are pregnant or those with heart, neck or back problems should avoid this attraction.

    If you’re hungry, Restaurantosaurus is located in DinoLand. For lunch and dinner, it’s fast food fare with burgers, chicken salad, hot dogs, and salads featured.
