DinoLand U.S.A. is a themed land at Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida and serves as the park's home to dinosaurs and other prehistoric life, as well as related modern animals.
DinoLand U.S.A. originally started as a small highway town where an amateur fossil-hunter found some dinosaur bones in 1947. After contacting some scientist friends, they gathered their money together to purchase the site. Since then, scientists, volunteers, and grad students have been living there trying to find answers about dinosaurs. The Dino Institute was founded and opened the site as a "fossil discover park". An old fishing lodge of the property became the Restaurantosaurus. Meanwhile, the Dino Institute and their partners at a research facility called Chrono-Tech discovered how to warp vehicles through time, and thus started doing time tours.
Chester and Hester, two locals, were determined to make a quick buck and converted their gas station into a fossil souvenir shop. Not to be out done by the Dino Institute, they turned their parking lot into a small amusement park called "Chester and Hester's Dino-Rama", featuring their own version of DINOSAUR named Primeval Whirl. They also added TriceraTop Spin and the midway games.
