The Oasis is a themed land and is the main entrance of Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Along with providing various guest services, the Oasis features a number of animal habits. Guests can encounter muntjacs, spoonbills, ducks, wallabies and giant anteaters, among other animals. The main paths lead deeper into the park, and onto Discovery Island.

A Rainforest Cafe is also located at the entrance of the Oasis, although technically it is outside the park boundaries. Guests may dine at the restaurant without entering the park, while guests entering the restaurant from within the park are actually exiting the park and must present their admission tickets to return to the park.

  • The Oasis was originally going to be named the "Genesis Gardens" but Disney felt that the name had too strong a religious connotation and decided Oasis was less controversial and more true to the area's purpose.
