    I would like to go to Animal Kingdom with my wife for a day or two. What advice do you have?

    Hi, John!  Welcome to planDisney!

    Adventure is out there, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is the perfect place to take the Ellie to your Carl.  As you plan for your visit, I recommend that you do a little resEARch on the Walt Disney World website so that you can learn about all that this theme park has to offer.  In the meantime, I'd be happy to tell you about some of my must-dos at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    I like to start my day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park bright and early.  I typically head straight to Pandora - The World of Avatar to experience one of my favorite attractions, Avatar Flight of Passage as soon as I arrive.  On Avatar Flight of Passage, you can soar on the back of a mountain banshee over the breathtakingly beautiful landscape of Pandora.  This exhilarating attraction is extremely popular, so it's typically a good idea to try to experience it first thing in the morning or at the end of the day when wait-times tend to be a bit lower.  Throughout your day, you can use your My Disney Experience mobile app to keep tabs on those wait-times.

    If you and your wife are thrill-seekers, you won't want to miss Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain.  Here you will board a train headed to Mount Everest, but beware of the mythical Yeti who guards the mountain.  If you can escape the clutches of the Yeti, you can next head to Africa for Kilimanjaro Safaris.  No trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is complete without this exciting tour of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, where you can view 34 different species of live animals.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park also provides plenty of adventure for your taste buds.  If you're looking for a sit-down meal, I highly recommend making a dining reservation for either Tiffins Restaurant or Yak & Yeti Restaurant.  For a delicious quick-service dining experience, you can't go wrong with Flame Tree Barbecue.  If you and your wife would like to enjoy specialty cocktails and tasty snacks in a laid-back atmosphere, be sure to stop by Nomad Lounge.  The outdoor deck at Nomad Lounge is my favorite place for a relaxing mid-day break.

    During your visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, be sure to take some time to just stroll through the park and take in all of the amazing details and intricate theming.  I hope you and your wife will have a wild time experiencing the magic of nature.

    See ya real soon!
