I don’t make it to Disney’s Animal Kingdom as often as I’d like to since it usually closes early. But I squeezed in a few hours on Halloween. Here are some of the more interesting things I noticed.
The trams that bring you to and from the parking lot now have doors on them. The doors have been installed on all the trams at the Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios so far. By early next year, all 23 trams at all the Disney parks will have them. They are manually locked and unlocked by a lever, but they close by themselves if you leave them open. But even with the doors, they still ask that kids sit on the inside of the row.
The Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafe had closed by the time I was walking by, so I sat at the Yak & Yeti restaurant bar and ordered a snack to go, then went outside by the fountain to eat. But I have to tell you, those bar chairs are very comfortable.
This bridge used to “fall” a bit when the truck went over it, but that feature hasn’t been working in quite a while. Our tour guide warned us that it was a rickety bridge before we went over it, so I was hopeful they’d “fixed” the falling effect, but no fall for us. The last time I rode, someone sitting near the driver asked why the bridge didn’t fall. The driver said it was because they fixed it. He then asked the person why they’d want to go over a bridge that falls. I wasn’t amused.
