New Guest Survey For Disney’s Animal Kingdom Focuses on Limited Offerings, Just Three Areas of the Park
After our recent visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom we got a surprise in our inbox, a brand new Guest Satisfaction Survey. Typically this isn’t anything out of the ordinary, but some of the questions raised in the survey have piqued our interest.
The survey started out asking a multitude of questions regarding COVID safety measures and how we feel about their effectiveness. We’ve seen these sort of questions pop up in surveys since the parks reopened back in July 2020. However, the next section focused on the impact that “temporarily paused” offerings are having on our plans to return in the future.
Based on how much attention recent testing of Fireworks have been getting we think it’s safe to say that quite a few people are missing Disney’s Nighttime Spectaculars.
Another victim of the pandemic is Disney’s FastPass+ program. Could they be considering reintroducing it in the not-so-distant future?
Extra Magic Hours, a very popular perk among guests staying on Disney property was mentioned as well.
Wait times were also covered in this survey, along with a couple of questions about the crowd levels during our visit.
We found this to be a particularly interesting question in a survey specific to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which presently has no Marvel or Star Wars IP presence in the park. Could they be considering changing that?
We found the next section to be particularly interesting. The survey focused in on three key areas of the park; the Front of the Park, Dinoland U.S.A and Asia. We specifically noted that we had also spent time in Africa, Discovery Island and Pandora: The World of Avatar during our visit, but the survey focused in only on the three areas.
Each of the three areas had a page of questions like the ones above for Dinoland U.S.A. The questions focused on Cleanliness, Cast Member Interactions and overall experience.
And finally, the survey asked us to rate our experiences with Dinosaur as well as Expedition Everest. Could this be a precursor to attraction updates, or are they just curious?
Disney has always been big proponents of guest surveys, as evidenced by the Cast Members often stationed at park entrances/exits with their tablets, ready to collect all varieties of feedback. Could these targeted questions mean that changes are coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom? At this point, we aren’t sure, but you can be sure that when/if any changes are announced, WDWNT will be here to keep you in the know!
