More Disney Thoughts

There were a few new additions to the Disney parks since our last visit over 5 years ago. I think we both decided our favorite was the new roller coaster at Animal Kingdom called Expedition Everest. It was an awesome ride and unique from any other coaster I’ve ridden before. I’m just thankful for the Fast Pass system that allowed us to ride it without the 90-minute wait.

Another great addition to the Disney parks is called “Lights, Motors, Action!” at MGM. It’s a live stunt show featuring a variety of different “movie” stunts with cars, motorcycles, and jet skis. It was incredibly impressive and very enlightening. We’ll never watch a movie car chase scene the same way after learning some of the tricks of the trade.

We also enjoyed the new “Finding Nemo” musical at Animal Kingdom. It replaced the Tarzan show that we’d enjoyed so much the last time, but it was really good. Unfortunately we had to be there an hour early in order to have seats. It’s a good thing we made a habit of carrying the Gameboy and iPod to help pass the time. I know, so romantic, huh? But in that heat and humidity you’ve got to have something to take your mind off of your “suffering.” J
