This order was signed on the opening day for Disney’s Animal Kingdom. 🙂
One of my favorite spots in the expansion. Soarin’s blue room meets Africa. The lamp shades are spectacular and set against the beautiful sky blue painted wood pillars alongside the white sand stone walls. Just brilliant.
My best swahili tells me this means do not lean on the walls. But it could be lost in translation.
A simple message of recycling advanced without being pushed onto anyone. Now the subliminal coke branding that didn’t pass this sharp mouse.
Simba, the one true king, shines bright like a diamond.

The theater show is largely unchanged but considering the rave reviews it receives that is to be expected.
Epic love.
The theater itself is new and that comes with new lighting but most importantly to me was the sound felt like it was upgraded. The singing voices came through so clear, it was awesome.
The Lion King is a story of triumph over adversity and that is a cause for celebration.

The one negative bit of news I must report is that Disney once again decided against using backs on the bleacher chairs that I feel once again is a mistake especially when you consider the theatre is now being used for special ticketed events.

Quite the finale.
