The Boneyard

The Boneyard

An Attraction in Animal Kingdom

Last updated: June 17, 2024

At a Glance
With an open-air “dig site” as its centerpiece, this elaborately themed playground appeals to kids age 10 and younger but is visually appealing to all ages. Decorated with dinosaur skeletons, the “dig site” is a sandpit where kids can scrounge for bones and fossils. There’s also a ropes course, as well as slides, swings, climbing areas, and caves to play in.

Not the most pristine of Disney attractions, but certainly one where younger kids will want to spend some time. Aside from being dirty (or at least sandy), The Boneyard gets mighty hot in the Florida sun, so keep your kids well hydrated, and drag them into the shade from time to time. Try to save this until after you’ve experienced the main attractions.

Because The Boneyard is so close to the center of the park, it’s easy to drop in whenever your kids get antsy. While the little ones clamber around on giant femurs and ribs, you can sip a tall cool one in the shade (still keeping an eye on them, of course).

As a Michigan family attests, kids love The Boneyard:

The highlight for our kids was The Boneyard, especially the dig site. They just kept digging and digging to uncover the bones of the woolly mammoth.

Be aware, however, that The Boneyard rambles over about a half-acre and is multistoried, making it easy to lose sight of a small child. Fortunately, there’s only one entrance and exit. A mother of two from Stillwater, Minnesota, found the playground too large for her liking:

If you’re a parent who likes to have your eyes on your kids at all times, you won’t like The Boneyard. Kids climb to the top of the slides; then you can’t see them and you don’t know what chute they’ll be exiting from.

From the mother of a 3-year-old:

If your child is quite young, make sure you have two people in The Boneyard— one to help them up all the stairs, the other to stay at the bottom and watch them as they exit the slide. By the time you get from the top of the structure to the bottom, they’re off who-knows-where getting into mischief of one kind of another without adult supervision.
