Continuing on with this series, we’re stopping at Animal Kingdom next! There are lots of overlooked attractions at this park purely because people come for the Kilimanjaro Safari and Expedition Everest and then leave the park. Let’s change that!
Rafiki’s Planet Watch – There’s a whole area here that you can explore. There’s a train ride, you can learn about animal conservation, watch some veterinary procedures, and there is even a petting zoo kids will love.
Tree of Life – You can’t miss the Tree of Life, situated right in the front of the park, but have you really examined it closely? If you can take some time to really look at the Tree, you can appreciate the artistry that it holds. There are lots of walking trails and nooks and crannies to explore. Since you’re up close there are plenty of great photo opportunities as well. It’s good to take some time and really check it out. The carvings are absolutely beautiful!
DiVine – She is a performance artist dressed in green vines that typically hangs out around the pathways surrounding the Tree of Life. She blends in really well so sometimes she’s hard to find but when you do, she is not to be missed!
Flights of Wonder – This is a 25 minute show all about exotic birds. It’s shaded and there’s seating so it’s a good way to get out of the sun and learn about some really beautiful birds. They do some tricks and stunts so it’s very entertaining as well as being educational.
Wilderness Explorer Program – Children can be like Russell from “Up” and earn Wilderness Explorer badges as well as learning about animals and animal conservation.
