Pandora at Night

Kaltxì and oel ngati kameie, I recently took short flight to Pandora. I captured the alien planet by day and by night, this post focuses on what I saw at dusk and after dark on Pandora. It’s a lovely planet teeming with bio-luminescent life. The photos below encapsulate approximately fifteen minutes until sunset into the…

Off the Beaten Path

Good day! As a local with annual passes for over 20 years of his life, I’ve obviously spent a lot of time in the parks. I’ve probably passed through those turnstiles over 1000 times. Due to spending so much time in the parks, I have had more time than many people to explore all the…

Tiffins at Animal Kingdom

Welcome, weary travelers! This post is an ode to Tiffins – the latest restaurant to open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This off-the-beaten-path (literally, you have to go down the closed pathway to Pandora to find it) restaurant is a real gem. Full of beautiful artwork and delicious food, it is both a history of and…

Sanaa: The Best Restaurant You Haven’t Visited

Gari langu linaloangama limejaa na mikunga! Animal Kingdom is my favorite park. It only makes sense that Animal Kingdom Lodge is my favorite Disney resort. I have spent entire three-day weekends at Animal Kingdom Lodge without ever setting foot in the parks. Animal Kingdom Lodge offers so much to do and see: beautiful savannas, amazing…

Cretaceous Christmas

Merry Christmas! One of the oft-maligned lands at Walt Disney World is Dinoland, U.S.A. I love it – without apology – for what it is: a perfectly-themed roadside attraction and carnival that sprung up in the middle of the 20th Century around the site of an archaeological dig. Melissa has written much more about this…

Harambe Holidays

Jambo! I visited Animal Kingdom twice last week. It’s no secret that I love Harambe, New Harambe, and Harambe Marketplace, which is why I was so excited to see the Imagineers have been busy decorating my favorite African destination for the holidays! I couldn’t stop taking photos of the creative decorations – some old and…

Harambe Market at Animal Kingdom

Jambo! This extensive photo post is of one of the latest areas to open at Animal Kingdom: Harambe Market! While – at its core – this is nothing but a food court, it’s done with a level of style and detail that is just wonderful to experience. I won’t try to write flowery prose about…

iGot an iPhone 6, and All uGot are These Weenie Pictures

Welcome (back?)! Last Friday, I walked into the Verizon Wireless store after work to check out demo iPhones and see what I’d need to move over from AT&T and get Melissa onto a family plan with me. I was told that they didn’t have any demo phones, but that they had some in stock to…

A Tribute to All of Africa, but Mostly New Harambe

Jambo! Recently, Walt Disney World reopened their acclaimed show Festival of the Lion King in a splendid new theater built as an extension to the existing port city of Harambe in Animal Kingdom’s Africa. Melissa – my beautiful fiancée/second shooter/blogger/travel partner/best friend – helped me take these pictures and also wrote all about some of…

Animal Kingdom Lodge – 1979

Greetings, Adventurers! In a departure from the norm, I shot using a film camera for the very first time today. My family had Easter dinner at Sanaa at Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village. I took my Pentax K1000 SE out to see how I’d do with film and to acquaint myself to some film shooting…

Two Nights at Kidani Village

Jambo! This past January, my fiancée treated us to two nights at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village. We had a savannah view studio, and I have shared pictures of the lobby, room, and our view below. Make sure to check out Melissa’s post on our time in Africa. Enjoy, -ADA @AtDisneyAgain

The Wilderness Must Be Explored!

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…
