Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend one of the Pandora previews and got a first-hand look at what the Disney Imagineers have created inside Animal Kingdom. I will upfront with you…I have never seen Avatar the movie so I had no idea about the storyline, scenery, characters, etc. I went into this experience with no preconceived notions and, most importantly, no expectations mainly because I did not know what to expect.
My next Disney trip is coming up in a few weeks (mid-May) thanks to a random day off in my child’s school calendar. It’s going to be a trip of many firsts for our family. A lot of the firsts are because we, typically, travel in the fall and not the spring. It will give me a chance to experience some new things and give me a chance to blog about some new things at Disney as well.
Walt Disney World is a big place. It’s a lot of walking and hurrying to get from point A to point B and, also, a lot of waiting. This is tough on adults but it’s also tough on the children in the parks as well. Chances are there will be a meltdown in the parks from all the walking and waiting. It happens to everybody. What can you do to keep the meltdown at bay or avoid it altogether.
With it being Groundhog Day today, I thought it would be fun to look at some Groundhog Day attractions at Walt Disney World. This post will one attraction in each park that you want to ride over and over again and one attraction in each park where you only ride it once but it feels like you rode it over and over.
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.
