    hi doug thanks for the help but my husband is more into sports mainly football(go gators) loves exotic animals, hoping to be a exotic animal vet after retires from army. loves things that go fast and has fun with shooter game. any ideas will help thank you


    Thanks for the further information. So here are some suggestions that might better match his interests;

    • Backstage Safari at Animal Kingdom
      • This is a great way for him to get some close sight to a variety of exotic animals. While it lasts 3 hours and there is a charge, it certainly seems up his alley!
    • Animal Programs at Animal Kingdom
      • Check with the resort when you arrive to see if there are any special programs underway during your stay. 
    • Water Sports
      • Most of the marinas have a broad array of boat rentals to meet that need for speed!
    • Arcades
      • Most hotels have arcades for shooter games, and the Yard at ESPN Club at BoardWalk has a variety of sport-themed video games.

    As for football, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers use the Disney Wide World of Sports as their fall practice facility. If you are there during the pre-season you might want to get him some time to watch practice.

    Send me more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
