I’m a huge fan of Molly’s Mammoth Club, and she never fails to disappoint: I loved her review of Epcot’s Behind The Seeds tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6Iho09dgRg . I did the tour a few years ago and it was a fun way to get up close to all the plant and animal life. I strongly recommend this tour if you can spare an hour of time at Epcot.
AllEars put up a discussion of whether staying at the Garden Wing of the Contemporary Resort was a good option, and I wanted to comment on it to say YES OF COURSE! I love staying at the Garden Wing of the Contemporary – IMO it’s actually better if you’re a parks person, because walking from a room in the Garden Wing to the bus stop is relatively fast, while staying in the A Frame of Contemporary can be slower since you’re waiting for the elevators.
I had to double check the date to make sure this wasn’t an April Fool’s joke, but it looks like Animal Kingdom is undergoing some retheming to the Muppet Animal! I’m a huge fan of the Muppets, so any new Muppet property is awesome by my standards!
