Disney World is taking steps towards reopening its parks, although a date has not yet been set.
The last Disney park I visited was Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I visited during the holiday season, so the crowd was big and lines were long. How the world had changed since. I am glad I visited when I did, because I don’t have plans to visit anytime soon. That was true even pre-COVID-19.
I took quite a few pictures along the way, but I never got around to sharing them, until now.
We watched one of the live productions:
Animals at the Animal Kingdom
Part of the appeal visiting the Animal Kingdom was that it was like a half a visit to the zoo. We were looking forward to the Kilimanjaro Safari, and apparently, so was everyone else. Lines were long everywhere, but we waited for this ride. I saw everything from someone trying to squeeze up the line every chance she got, to a teenager borrowing her mom’s phone only to drop it (the screen cracked).
I’m going to have a little fun with the captioning.
Rivers of Light Night Show
After the tour, it was already in the afternoon. We waited through another round of long line to order food. Afterwards, we wandered around and assed by the sight of these lotus flowers. We figured that they must be part of the Rivers of Light Show.
We had a FastPass for the Rivers of Lights show, but it was for the late showing. Instead, we opted to standby for an earlier show.
It would be interesting to see how Disney parks operate in the post COVID-19 era. Having smaller crowds and shorter lines would make a better experience for most guests.
