The kids took part in another adventure. This time “Wilderness Explorers,” earning badges throughout the park, as they learned about nature and how to take care of the planet. I love this park. It feels like you are hiking in the wilderness (… with thousands of other people). Lots of trees and green interspersed with paid-for grime and the smell of spices smoking. Masses of wires stretching like tangled hair between old-paint buildings, sun-bleached lawn chairs on the roofs next to faded rugs poked up by sticks as sunshades. It’s the attention to detail that earns my thumbs up.
Africa feels like Africa. Asia feels like Asia. The Harambe train clickety-clacks. The safari ride takes you through the grasslands of Africa in a beast of a landrover. Pushing through flooded roads and crossing heaving bridges, you get to tour through the most amazing zoo on the planet. George and Gord went on the Kali River Rapids ride three times and got soaked while Evie and Grey and I explored the Bone Yard playground in DinoLand.
We closed down Animal Kingdom too. It was our last Disney day. A great one.
