November Review

Animal Kingdom

November has been another full month of fun and activity as we took a look at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Take a few minutes to check out posts you may have missed or revisit some of your favorites.

We earned our EARS for November. Remember we’re taking December off, and there will be no assignment. Enjoy the holidays with your friends and families, and we’ll see you January 1st!

We announced the very talented winner of our children’s art contest:

We hopped aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow to imagine what it would be like to be a Cast Member.

We hiked down the path, and found ourselves at summer camp in the forested, lake-strewn Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, aka Camp Minnie-Mickey!

Then rode aboard the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch (formerly called Conservation Station), for a rustic journey up close and behind the scenes of the care and handling of more than 1,000 animals.

We boarded a rugged, open-sided safari truck and toured the 100-acre savanna of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve for Kilimanjaro Safaris, the largest of any Disney Park attraction.

All that Park touring made us a little hungry! It takes approximately 3 tons of food each day to keep Animal Kingdom’s 1,000+ animals happy. That’s equivalent to about 4.5 years’ supply for the average human being. We weren’t quite that hungry when we took a look at the various eateries at Animal Kingdom.

The Maharajah Jungle Trek attraction in Animal Kingdom’s Asia is like a private zoo at the king’s own palace. We walked the winding paths of the lush Anandapur Royal Forest through ancient ruins and into a mystical paradise of tropical vegetation and wild animals.

Our friend Melissa from Disney on Wheels gave us a new perspective: Animal Kingdom on Wheels, touring the Park in a wheelchair!

And finally, we wished everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and took a look at some nice, shady rest areas at Animal Kingdom.

Of course, our regular features ran too. We hosted several GIVEAWAYS this month!  We blog hopped…or bounced at Tiggerific Tuesday each week. And we hope you enjoyed our somewhat Wordless Wednesdays too!

Today’s Takeaway:
Take a look back at what went on in November and join us for an exciting month ahead when we visit the Disney Parks during the holidays!
