Top 9 Things to Do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Before Animal Kingdom got a boost with the (fairly) new arrival of “Pandora: The World of Avatar”, it was largely regarded as the “park to skip” if you were in a time crunch.  While I can agree that Pandora has become the “main attraction,” so to speak, there are plenty of other great things to do during your visit to the park.

Without further ado, here are my “Top 9 things to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!”

Disney Wonder Alaska Cruise Review

Hi, I’m Richard, and I’m here as a “guest blogger” to talk about the Disney cruise to Alaska my wife Erica and I took September 4-11, 2017.  I know that many of you have been on a cruise, even maybe a Disney cruise, but not too many have been on a Disney cruise to Alaska…so I thought a discussion of each aspect of the cruise would be helpful!

“Is that Your Little Autograph Book?” – Princess Tiana

(This post contains an Amazon affiliate link.)

While I don’t consider myself a super-collector when it comes to autographs, I have started obtain a nice little collection of celebrity signatures.  I’ll write more in-depth later about chasing wrestlers and other minor celebrities at various conventions.  That’s definitely a blog post in itself.  But, this post is going to be a little bit different…..

When my wife and I first started going to Walt Disney World on a regular basis, one of our favorite things to do, as mentioned in a previous post, became getting our photograph with the glut of Disney characters on hand.  Nobody should leave Disney without at least ONE character photo and interaction (if only one, it has to be Mickey Mouse, right?), but it has become a bit of an obsession to meet as many different characters (in as many different outfits) as we can.

My Top 5 Disney Character Meet & Greets

Despite the fact that I am well into (further than I’d care to admit) adulthood, one of my favorite things about the Disney experience is meeting the costumed characters representing our favorite Disney “stars”.  That’s the point, right?  We all want to dive into the Disney bubble and feel like a kid again, and this is one of the best ways to achieve that goal.  My wife and I, throughout our many trips to Disney World, have become pretty serious “character collectors”, so to speak.

“How does one collect characters?”, you may ask.  Well, please don’t jump to any weird conclusions, you will not see us stuffing Mickey and friends into the back seat of our car.  Our Disney obsession does not extend to mouse-napping!

“Character collecting” is simply a figure of speech, which means we will go out of our way to meet any characters we haven’t previously met, or to get a photo op with classic characters in a new outfit.

While finding new characters for photo ops can become increasingly difficult when you’ve made as many trips to Disney as we have (poor us, huh?), there are some that we have to meet every single time.

So, without further ado, here is my list of my personal “Top 5 Character Meets” at Disney”
