Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World
The new land at Animal Kingdom wasn’t open during my last trip to Walt Disney World and from what I had been reading online, I was expecting quite a lot from it. The land itself is beautiful. I have to give Disney their due credit. They do know how to put on a show. To be truly impressed, make sure to visit after dark. That is when this new area comes alive.
I was unable to get a fastpass for the Flight of Passage attraction so I got myself to the park early to join the mad rush. To say my faith in common courtesy has been diminished would be a gross understatement. Apparently the new norm is everyone for themselves. It was a very disappointing. It continued into the night as I returned to this land for pictures as it became lit with the luminous glow the movie was known for. I lost count of the number of pictures ruined by someone stepping in front of me to get their picture. I wait my turn and definitely try not to impede anyone enjoying the parks. I realize my camera and tripod can be a bit much so I do everything I can to not intrude. Don’t get me wrong there are definitely people who wait before crossing in front of me, but they are becoming more rare every year.
OK, enough bellyaching! Here is one of the images I was able to capture. I still have some more learning to do as this is a difficult area to photograph with its lighting. I guess that means I will have to come back… LOL.
