Name a Baby Giraffe: This week on the Disney Parks Blog’s Wildlife Wednesdays series we have one of those posts that busts the cute meter. And that can only really be done by a photo of a new baby animal at the Animals Kingdom! And this time, it is the first Masai Giraffe calf born at DAK. And we can help name him! Go to the Park’s Blog and register your vote.
Can I just make a suggestion to the folks at Disney for the next time one of the park’s iconic species is born? How about the name Rohde? Just a thought...
Garden Kiosk Set to Open in Discovery Island: On August 4 a new kiosk will open in Discovery Island at the Animal Kingdom. It is called the Garden Kiosk and besides offering some snacks and drinks, the kiosk will serve as an information point to help people with dietary needs and allergies pick the best dining options. My guess is if this goes well we may see these kiosks pop up at the rest of Disney theme parks.
Thursday is Tiger Day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Tomorrow, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be celebrating Tiger Day! According to the Disney Parks Blog “Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 25 will discover even more about tigers and learn about efforts to conserve them as the park celebrates Tiger Day with special activities at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. Families can test their skills at identifying tiger calls, find out where in the world tigers live and how they travel through the forest, and see if they can leap as far as a tiger, among other activities.”
