Asia is a themed land at Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Along with showcasing animals from throughout the continent, Asia is also the home of two of the park's thrill rides. The section opened in 1999 as the park's first expansion land.


Just as the park's Africa section is set in the fictional village of Harambe, guests to Asia find themselves in the village of "Anandapur", which means "place of delight" in Sanskrit. During its history, the village was part of a larger kingdom, also called Anandapur, which was ruled by benevolent maharajahs. Since then, the "residents" of the village have devoted much of the outskirts to the conservation and study of the region's animal life.
