A visit to a busier than expected Animal Kingdom – though many people are still heading to Avatar / Pandora, so we headed to other places, including five entertaining Otters!
Or if you prefer, photos:
The Amphicars at Disney Springs are expensive but unusual – and as the price is per car not per person, we felt a bit more justified riding today while Kate is with Margaret & me! Here’s some photos, and a video too …
At Disney Epcot the Living With The Land ride takes people through various huge conservatories planted beautifully with interesting and educational exhibits – it’s also possible to take an inexpensive tour into the area, seeing everything in more detail. We’ve done this before but chose to do it again today because Epcot was very busy and the tour is a relaxing alternative to standing in queues!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has a new area opening soon – Pandora, inspired by the film Avatar; and we got preview access there today …
As befits the fact that it’s an alien world, everything is very well themed with unusual plants and creatures – including sounds, all around. There are two rides in the area too, a nice gentle Na’Vi River Journey, and a much less gentle one (Flight Of Passage) – for us rather like an extreme Star Tours combined with extreme Tower Of Terror and Soarin’! I don’t think either of us will be doing that second ride again.
Here’s some photos from the visit, showing the theming and plant life:
And here’s some less-than-perfect pictures from the River Journey:
