SENSE OF AFRICA TOUR AT DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM LODGE

Guests can indulge their senses during the new Sense of Africa tour at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. This 3.5-hour long experience is designed to immerse Walt Disney World® Resort Guests in the richness, culture and history of the African-inspired resort and give a backstage peek at the care, feeding, well-being and social interactions of the resident animals.

A typical tour begins with a unique twist on breakfast at Boma – Flavors of Africa, followed by encounters with animals such as okapi, giraffe, ostriches and red river hogs. Sense of Africa is a real chance to get a behind-the-scenes peek at the magic.

The cost is $249, and staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is not required. Experiences may vary.

The experience will be offered on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, beginning April 9, 2016. Reservations are now available. Book by calling 407-WDW-TOUR (939-8687).

NEW AQUATIC PLAY AREA OPENS AT DISNEY’S PORT ORLEANS RESORT – FRENCH QUARTER

Just in time for warm summer days, there’s a new space at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter that’s just for little ones who like to splash around and stay cool.

Decked out in the bold hues of Mardi Gras gold, purple and green, this new aquatic play area lets Guests 48 inches and under enjoy water slides that are just their size, play with fun water cannons, and splish-splash among fountains.

The new area is located next to the whimsical Doubloon Lagoon pool, so guests and their little ones can easily go back and forth between the two water-filled spots while staying at this resort.

Check out the Piano Player in the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. His version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is something so amazing. He also did a wonderful job on Toy Story’s ‘You’ve got a friend in me”.
