Animal Kingdom Updates – February 11, 2012

This week’s Animal Kingdom Update includes my favorite show and yet another area that I have not explored in the park.  You would think that with the number of times that I have been to the park that I have seen everything there is to see.  You’d be wrong.  I spent sometime exploring one of the Discovery Trails around The Tree of Life.  I’ve got some great pictures for you from it too!

Crowds at the entrance - the cheerleaders are in town!

Where is my favorite Tumble Monkey?

So I made it to Animal Kingdom and started playing with my camera to see what kind of pictures it could take:

I grabbed a schedule and saw that the Festival of the Lion King was starting soon so I made my way over to Camp Minnie Mickey.  The crowds were really low on this particular day:

I got a seat in the Lion section.  That was a new section for me!  ROAR!

I love the Tumble Monkeys.  I must admit that I’ve had a bit of a crush on one of them.  Unfortunately, he wasn’t part of this show.  I was disappointed because I had excellent zoom on my new camera.

Not my favorite Tumble Monkey…

I then gave my video camera feature a try.  I got a few seconds of video from the show:

After the show, I needed to find Donald so that I could have my picture taken with him and my medal.  It was a fairly easy task since I was right near the Character Greeting Trails.  Donald loved my medal and made a big deal about it.

Again, the Christmas decorations were still up, so I had some fun taking pictures of them:

While I was watching the show, I got a message from Tim saying that he wasn’t going to be able to make it to hang out later, so I made my way further into the park…
