Emagine Movie Theaters – A Luxurious Viewing Experience

Over Easter weekend, I traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan for the University of Michigan spring football game (GO BLUE!).  I did not drive back home until Monday because I did not want to get stuck trying to find places that would be open on Easter Sunday.  I figured it was much easier to stay in Ann Arbor for an extra night (college campus – diverse population – better chance to find things open).  My daughter and I had a lovely Easter Brunch at a local hotel and then that afternoon we went to the movies.  My family has a tradition of going to the movies on major holidays since they are usually less crowded.

Groundhog Day Attractions

Going on Safari!

One of my favorite attractions at Animal Kingdom is Kilimanjaro Safaris.  It allows guests to get up close but not too close to the animals.  It provides some shade while sitting down (my family always seems to go to Animal Kingdom on our vacation’s hottest day).  Lastly, it provides lots of great photo opportunities.
