The Oasis Exhibits form the entrance corridor for Disney's Animal Kingdom, serving a similar purpose as Main Street, U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom. The exhibits feature waterfalls, exotic plant life, and animals selected for their "gentle disposition."[1] The Oasis was designed to put guests into contact with animals immediately upon entering the park.

Animals shown at the Oasis include wallabies, babirusa, scarlet macaws, muntjac, spoonbills, and a variety of ducks and swans.
