Asia – General
Asia is Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s newest land, and opened in 1999.
“Anandapur” means “City of Delights” (or “place of delights”) in Sanskrit. As with most things found in Walt Disney World, this fictional village has a story behind it. It was supposedly established in 1544 as a royal hunting reserve. In time a village grew in the area. Although the royal hunting reserve has now been converted into a conservation area, the surrounding village still thrives to this day.
