Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom is a hands on adventure for kids. When you enter the park, you can stop by the Wilderness Explorer welcome center located on the bridge near the Tree of Life. You’ll receive a Wilderness Explorers field guide with different badges that can be earned at specific spots throughout the park and have an opportunity to go ahead and earn your first badge.
Check the map in the book for the location of all the other badges you need to earn and start exploring Animal Kingdom. If you don’t finish all badges during your visit, bring the book with you on your next visit. It’s a great way to get your kids excited about everything there is to see and do in the Animal Kingdom.
When you receive the Wilderness Explorers field guide, you will also get a pencil that you can use to complete the activities in the book. I also suggest that you mark off each badge that you earn on the map. This way you can quickly reference the page to see what is left to earn and where it is located at.
Throughout the park, you will find Cast Members that have over the shoulder satchels that are marked with the Wilderness Explorer logo. Visit these Cast Members to earn your badge. If you need help with the activity, don’t be afraid to ask them. They can offer some great tips and advice.
When you have earned all badges, you will receive a special prize!
