Dinoland, USA opened with Disney's Animal Kingdom in 1998, but it had a much different look to it.

When the land first premiered the attractions present were Countdown to Extinction (now known as DINOSAUR), Cretaceous Trail, and The Boneyard.

As Dinoland, USA grew, so did the amazing storyline that went along with it. As the story goes, in 1947 a man stumbled across a dinosaur bone in the area and soon enough everyone developed Dino-fever. With this storyline in place, Disney made sure to include every portion of the land into this storyline.

Restaurantosarus is the home of the students studying paleontology in the area, the Boneyard is the actual dig site where the original dinosaur bones were found, Dinosaur is home to the Dino Institute, while Chester and Hester's area is an area created by some locals looking for a quick buck.

Throughout Dinoland, USA you can see the in depth storyline practically everywhere you look!

The current attractions in Dinoland, USA are Dinosaur, The Boneyard, Primeval Whirl, TriceraTop Spin, and Finding Nemo: The Musical.


Fun Facts: Finding Nemo: The Musical is included in Dinoland, USA on most park maps and guide books, but in reality its home is the Theatre in the Wild. The Theatre in the Wild actually does not belong to a specific land, but to make the attraction easier to find, we have included it in Dinoland, USA on this site as well.

Touring Tips: Dinosaur is one of the most popular attractions in Disney's Animal Kingdom so you may want to consider getting a Fastpass for the attraction.
