“Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba Sithi uhm ingonyama.” Yep, we’re singing that iconic Zulu introduction to “Circle of Life” because that song reminds us of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (Also, yes, we googled how to spell the lyrics.)
We can’t help it — it’s the song that comes to mind every time we look up at the gorgeous Tree of Life. We’ll also admit to hearing it often because we LOVE Festival of the Lion King. Animal Kingdom just has something the other Disney World parks don’t — it’s got a relaxed vibe, LOADS of animals, cheeseburger pods, and lots of trees (and that means shade, which other parks are sorely lacking). So let’s head on over to this chill park and see what’s new!

We also spotted a new addition to the Disney Critters collection, and we have to say, we are LOVING all this Meeko representation we’re seeing lately. This is a Meeko Activity Box.
