    OK this the 4th little exercise I want MANY Disdads to participate in.
    (If you answered on our other forum...no need to answer here)


    What we are looking for from each of you give several (at least 10, no more than 20) "Attractions" regarding Animal Kingdom. By "Attractions" I mean, Rides, Shows, Resturants, Experience, etc...that when someone ask you... "Hey, (name)...what is it that you like so much about the Animal Kingdom?"

    I'm not looking for you to rank these...just what you think of when you think Animal Kingdom. This is "My Animal Kingdom."

    I encourage you to make your list without influence from others posts...make your list first then read the others and edit your post later if needed...but I think the first gut impression will probably be best. Cause this is Your Animal Kingdom...not Dave's.

    I love AK, pry #2 favorite. Love the atmosphere other then the added humidity (I'm not crazy about heat and/or humidity). I think Dino land is poor other than Dinosaur. This is a park where EMH really helps. First time I went there, month of October, it closed at 5pm! Last time i went, EMH to 8pm I think it was. Back to back Yetti Coaster rides in the dark!

    No specific order.
    1. Atmosphere
    2. Its Tough to be a Bug (best 4D ever!)
    3. Tree of Life
    4. Rainforest Cafe
    5. Dinosaur (I think Indiana Jones at DL is better)
    6. Expedition Everest @ Night!
    7. Finding Nemo
    8. Maharajah Jungle Trek
    9. Wildlife Train ride & Habitat/Conservation Section
    10. Kilimanjaro Safari
    11. Oasis Exhibits
    12. And I have yet to make it to the Lion King :-(

    We do many other things there, but I don't consider any of them to be "must do", just other things to do.

    Let's see.....AK, huh?

    1) Kilimanjaro Safari
    2) Everest
    3) Dinosaur
    4) Flame Tree BBQ (YUMMY!)
    5) Maharajah Jungle Trek
    6) Pangani Forest Trail (spend a lot of time watching the gorillas)
    7) FOTLK
    8) Birds of Flight
    9) The Oasis Exhibits
    10) Tree of life and trails

    We enjoyed Nemo, but it is not a must do every time and Kali River Rapids is only on the list when it is blazing hot and we are looking to get wet.
