Caw, caw, roar!
Welcome, fellow Wilderness Explorers! Today, I share with you some of the beautiful wilderness I recently explored at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I love that Disney integrated a piece of “Up” in such a clever, fun and educational way. The game is pretty simple, and a lot of fun. I’ll leave it to Melissa to explain it over on her blog, where you can enter to win a cool prize. Below, you’ll find pictures of that time I became a Wilderness Explorer.
Note: I’ve included GPS tags in 99% of the photos below (thanks, Canon, for including that on the 6D!), so if you have an EXIF viewer and REALLY want to find where each badge can be found… go right ahead.
Hope you enjoy!
Crossing the bridge toward Discovery Island, you may notice something new….

A friendly guide will teach you all about being a Wilderness Explorer.
You’ll need your handbook…
…and your map!
Such beauty. Much nature.
Melissa getting sworn in.
Make sure you pay attention to when the exploration ends.
It’s the touches that make everything wonderful.
Oh dear, the bones are all scrambled! You have to put them where they belong to earn your badge.
The flag badge booth is a little hard to find – it’s just a merch kiosk in Dinoland, USA.
The flags are also hard to find – they are up under this awning.
Follow the flaaaaaaaggg!
Learn about Nepal and Tibet right here!
Measure up against the yeti’s foot for your badge here.
I learned that butterflies are good luck when they get into your house… you NEVER try to get rid of a butterfly in your house!
Not for a badge, but a Wilderness Guide was standing near these monkeys to teach people about them. You can check these guys off of your list!
Convert your money!
Take a rubbing of this plaque.
I love how this looks like it’s always been here since the opening of the park… it hasn’t.
Learning all about Bangkok, Thailand.
You’ll need to find this to get your badge.

Goodnight, Wilderness Explorers!
