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.

Animation Monday: Zootopia

We move away from the past and flash to the present with Disney’s latest animated movie, Zootopia.  This critically-acclaimed film is tearing up the box-office with a $73.7 million opening weekend.

It is a very funny movie for both kids and adults.  The themes of the movie are complex but explained in a manner that kids, of all ages, can understand them.  But, at least for my family, Zootopia is an important movie because it is the first Disney movie where a rabbit gets to play a starring role.

Thumper and Miss Bunny #1

My daughter is a massive rabbit fan (she even hopped to meet Thumper and Miss Bunny when she met them a few years ago).  She has been looking forward to this movie for months.  Judy Hopps may have moved to the top of her list of favorite Disney characters.  Judy is a young, energetic, and full of determination.  A role bunny for children to look up to.  Ginnifer Goodwin brought that energy to Judy throughout the entire picture.
