Pete's Dragon is Coming: Disney is, if you already didn't know, releasing a new version of Pete's Dragon and they are celebrating that release at Disney's Animal Kingdom. No, its not the return of the flying dragon from Fantasyland's opening a few years ago. Nope, they are just passing out some buttons. Because the movie involves a park ranger and the woods, you will be able to pick up a movie button and take part in a puzzle game about National Parks at Rafiki's Planet Watch. This table will debut in early August to coincide with the film's August 12th release.
A new AKL Lodge site: Are you a fan of the Animal Kingdom Lodge? If the answer is yes (and how could it not be really), then check out a brand new site dedicated just to the lodge, aklodgefans.com. The site comes to you from our very good friends over at the Disney Hipsters. The site already contains amazing photos and a ton of useful information for people staying there, thinking of staying or just planning to pop in for a visit. You also may see a certain awarding winning podcast co-host on the pages there.
