Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for September 17, 2014: Fires and Funding

Boma Guests Evacuated Due to Small Fire: Guests dining at the popular buffet Boma in the Animal Kingdom Lodge were forced to evacuate Monday night due to a small fire in a storage room. From what we understand, diners were able to return about an hour later and no injuries were reported. Thankfully Safari Mike was not there at the time, saving him the need to stuff as much pork shoulder and durban chicken as he can fit into his pockets on the way out.

DWCF Announces This Year’s Grant Recipients: Every year the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund grants funding to dozens of conservation groups all over the world from the money the raise through various guest purchases. This year, Disney  awarded 141 grants to conservation groups including a couple of our Conservation Partners. Save the Rhino, Cheetah Conservation Fund and Grevy’s Zebra Trust all received some Disney dollars!
