  • DAK Formal Name?

    Does anyone know the formal name for DAK? I'm not sure which one is correct.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. (from most sources I've looked at).

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. (from my guide map from the park).

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

        You sure ? Neven seen Disney formaly use the word Theme Park next to their park. Every parck are tagged, "Whateverland Park." But maybe that one's an exception ?

            It is Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Since ALL Disney parks are "theme" parks, it is often just referred to as Disney's Animal Kingdom Park

                Just an FYI...

                For many of the early years of Disney-MGM, the Park was always officially referred to as the "Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park." The "Theme Park" part of the name was an actual contract stipulation with MGM, as MGM wanted it clear that what Disney was operating was not part of MGM's studio production business.

                Even Cast Members were instructed they always had to use the awkward tag "Theme Park" when quoting the name, making for quite a constant mouthful.

                Years later during a contract renegotiation, new MGM management agreed to remove that requirement from the contract, and the Park could finally be referred to as just Disney-MGM Studios.

                I think it's kind of funny that after all those years of hating having to use the "Theme Park" tag with Disney-MGM...the company now seems to like tagging it on to its other Parks.
