    Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Primeval Whirl

    When they enter DinoLand U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Guests step back in time.

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Yes, It IS for Kids!

    As you can imagine, I talk a lot about Walt Disney World–to my family, to my friends, to random strangers in department stores… Sometimes people baffle me with the things they say about the Most Magical Place on Earth. For instance, I’ve had people insist that Disney’s Animal Kingdom is not suited for younger Guests, […]
