Disney World’s Animal Kingdom – 2TravelDads

Author: , August 8th, 2019

Disney Animal Kingdom

As you know, Walt Disney World is huge and truly is a lot to take in. We have demystified the process of planning a Disney World trip and understanding the layout of the full resort, but it’s now time to dig deeper into the Parks. This is our plan for a one-day Disney’s Animal Kingdom itinerary and includes everything you need to know to have a roaring good time.

Upon our first visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, all we really knew was that there was some sort of zoo situation that was really remarkable and that there was a section that was the real life Pandora from Avatar. We didn’t know that the whole park was going to feel like and that it was going to be just as magical as the Magic Kingdom.

Within Disney’s Animal Kingdom you’ll find the following lands: Africa, Asia, Discovery Island and the Tree of Life, DinoLand USA, and Pandora. Each area is very different and offers unique experiences, including surprising character meet & greets and dance party. The park is centered around the Tree of Life, so if at any time you feel lost or confused, just find the tree and you’ll be good to go. By the end of one day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you’ll know the park like the back of your hand and you’ll love it!

Visiting Walt Disney World Without Kids

Author: , February 15th, 2014

Walt Disney World logoToss aside the notion that Walt Disney World is just for kids. The Orlando resort is a popular vacation destination for adult singles and couples alike; it’s even become a hotspot for weddings and honeymoons. But even without kids, the price of accommodation, park tickets, and dining adds up fast in the House of Mouse. Fortunately, Walt Disney World actually offers plenty of activities that are free or reasonably inexpensive, and fully geared toward adults. Here are just a few…

1. Downtown Disney: For those in search of a Disney quick fix, Downtown Disney jets the job done. There are no admission fee to enter the area, and self-parking is complimentary. It’s full of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues like the House of Blues — and there will be more of these once Downtown Disney’s massive expansion project is completed in 2016. You’ll also find an AMC movie theater, Splitsville bowling alley, and a Cirque du Soleil show. If you’re not in the mood to do any spending, you can always pull up a chair and watch the ferries from nearby hotels sail into the marina. Don’t forget to stop by during the holiday season, when Downtown Disney is decked out for the season.

2. Chip ‘N Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long: You don’t have to pay park admission to enjoy this classic Disney experience. Anyone can head to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort to sing along (or just snap photos) around the campfire with Chip and Dale. Chip ‘N Dale’s Campfire Sing-A-Long, held on select nights, is entirely free. If you’d like to maximize your campfire experience, you can purchase a s’mores kit for less than $10 at the Chuckwagon Snack Bar.

Disney Signs On to Orlando Gay Themed Week

Author: , February 1st, 2014

Epcot Center - OrlandoThis summer, Walt Disney Co. is signing on with a major event aimed toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender families. Disney World will be hosting its first-ever “Family Outfest” in Orlando, Florida” – a summer vacation for the modern family.

Family Outfest Director Gabrielle Shulruff told press, “We are just parents. You know, it doesn’t matter who you are or what your sexuality is, regardless, you are people and people with families like anybody else.”

Family Outfest will be part of an effort to increase the spending of LGBT families in central Florida by 25 percent, and that’s where Disney comes in. Orlando Gay Travel, the website advertising the event, lists Disney as a “main partner,” along with Nickelodeon Suite Resorts, Macy’s, and Hilton Orlando Buena Vista.
