Five on Friday

Last week I finished all of the parks and my top five ride/attractions at each park, ending with Magic Kingdom. If you missed the post you can catch up here.

This week I am going to start a new series of posts. I am going to do the top five rides/attractions that I want to do at each park that I haven't done before. Each of these rides/attractions will be something I haven't done before, but really want to! I think we are going to start back at the beginning with Animal Kingdom!

5. Cretaceous Trails - I think this would be interesting for our son to see. He likes dinosaurs (although not obsessed with them) so he would probably enjoy this. I am always up for learning new things and think this would be enjoyable for our family.

4. Discovery Island Trails - I'm not really sure where this is located in the park, but I know that we would enjoy this. The one thing I really like about AK is that you can just relax and walk around leisurely and enjoy all kinds of things! This would be one of the things we would enjoy doing.

3. Flights of Wonder - I am sure that we will enjoy this show. Last year we watched a small show in Rafiki's Planet Watch and we all really liked it. I don't think we ever made it to Asia in AK, so that is why we have never seen this show.

2. Camp Minnie-Mickey Greeting Trails - I know, I know - how in the world have we not done this? I'm not really sure! We have seen FOTLK on both of our trips, so I know we were right by there! After the show on our first trip it was pouring down rain, so we ended up leaving the park right after. Our second trip we ended up heading out right where we came in, so we missed it. I definitely want to catch it on our next trip though and see all of them in their Safari gear!

1. Maharajah Jungle Trek - This one is definitely going to be on our top list of things to do next trip. My son LOVES Tigers and other animals, so I know he will really enjoy this. As with the Flights of Wonder show, we have never made it into Asia, so we have missed out on all those attractions.

Have you done of any these rides/attractions? If so, what did you think about them? What rides/attractions are on your to-do list for Animal Kingdom?



  1. My husband and I got some great photos at Camp Minnie Mickey when he and I went, but on this past trip, there were just too many lines and too many other things we wanted to do instead... We'll definitely head back over on our next trip though! I think we'd also like to see the Flights of Wonder!

  2. We LOVE Maharajah Jungle Trek. One year we saw the tigers SWIMMING and playing in their pool. SO COOL!

    You have probably done part of the Discovery Island Trails and not known it. They wind around as you are looking at the Tree of Life and have animals in a more typical "zoo" setting. They can be particularly neat though if you see a Cast Member nearby. They are fed and worked with throughout the day and the Cast Members are EXTREMELY knowledgeable and fun to talk to!
