Today we started with the Festival of the Lion King. It is a live and costumed stage show. It is very good but loud. Once again, we had to put in our ear plugs to bring the volume down to tolerable levels. I am convinced the general population has hearing damage.
We spent most of the day walking on the Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail and Maharaja Jungle Trek. They are walks through the animal exhibits. Disney has done a great job at presenting the animals in as natural a setting as possible and has several species in breeding programs that are no longer found in the wild.
They have several babies at Animal Kingdom. On the safari, we saw a lot of animals but there was also a baby Giraffe and African elephant (Stella). This is her mother (Donna) 3rd birth at Animal Kingdom. This brings the herd to 3 males and 7 females.
On one of the trails there were two baby Silver back gorillas wrestling and rough playing together with both mom and dad napping. Dad was not amused when one woke him during their play time. Later we came upon Gibbon monkeys and there was a baby swinging all over showing off until mom called him back to feed.
Maybe I can post a video soon.
Steps for today were 7,222.
