Day #10: Animal Kingdom & Disney Quest, Orlando, Florida
Early in the morning we got on the bus and arrived at Animal Kingdom with three guides waiting for us for our second educational tour of the trip. Once separated into two groups, we set off on our behind the scenes tour of Animal Kingdom. We participated in numerous fun educational activities ranging from a tour of the closed park, to behind-the-scenes tours of the facilities and feeding rooms, to the science behind a zoo and breeding, and Safari Tours.
Among all of the activities, my favourite one was the ride through the Safari. Everyone in my group was fascinated by the beautiful surroundings and grazing animals that many of us have never seen before. After we went through the educational program, we were given free time and we all jumped onto the train, excited for the rides. From losing hats on the rides to screeching from excitement/fear, we have all survived the Animal Kingdom.
At Disney Quest, some immersed themselves into shopping while others enjoyed many great games (it was a blast from the past! Parents, you would have loved it, all the old arcade games were present! – DC). Our night ended with tired, yet excited kids arriving back at the hotel, ready for another full day ahead of us tomorrow!
