• Disney started arranging another park shortly after the opening of MGM Studios in 1989.Animal Kingdom was the brainchild of Imagineer Joe Rohde, who had previously designed the Adventurers Club at Pleasure Island.When presenting the possibility of the new Animal-themed park, Rohde brought a 400-pound Bengal tiger into the gathering with Disney CEO Michael Eisner.Originally slated as Disney's "Wild Animal Kingdom," Disney reported plans for the construction of the recreation center in 1995 at an estimated cost of $600-$800 million. To design the amusement park, Disney Imagineers headed out to Africa and Asia to study the landscapes and untamed life.
