Things You Didn’t Notice When You Visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The amount of detail and small touches revealed in this video is amazing. I’ve been to the Animal Kingdom twice and it’s actu­ally prob­ably my favorite park, but I hadn’t noticed most of these theming details. Of course Disney is highly praised for it’s theming in general, but at least in the case of this park, … Continue reading Things You Didn’t Notice When You Visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom
