We’re at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge today, checking things out and seeing if there is anything new!
While there haven’t been any updates on Boma or Jiko getting a reopening date, we did take a look around, and of course say hi to some animals. Although we’re used to seeing wildlife around this resort, there were some univited guests we noticed as we made our way around.
It might seem like a beautiful day to sit outside, or lay out by the pool, but you might reconsider once you see the visitors that have taken up residence in one of the trees.
We overheard Cast Members discussing the giant beehive that had shown up in one of the trees near the lodge’s pool. While it may not look like much from far away, this hive was HUGE — photos really don’t do it justice. Be honest, would you still hit up the pool with this looming overhead?
While Cast Members assured us they had called someone to come and take care of the beehive, it was still very unnerving as there were a significant amount of honey bees flying around the area. We don’t know about you, but butting heads with a bee is certainly not on our Disney World itinerary!
Sadly, this is not the first time we have come toe to toe with bees in Disney World. Earlier this year, bees shut down an entire floor of the Coca-Cola Store at Disney Springs! If we’re going to be seeing bees in Disney, we’d prefer them to come in snack form.
Hopefully the latest bee issue is dealt with swiftly (and safely for the bees!) so that it won’t impact anyone’s vacation. Be sure to stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated on the latest in Disney World, so you can always be prepared for whatever gets thrown at you!
