I think this may be my final post on our December Disney trip - it just seems "old" at this point.
This video clip includes some of the animals we saw at Animal Kingdom. It was pretty cool to see an enormous hippo swim underwater (through a window). The gorilla exhibit was also great - one of the gorillas was hanging out directly in front of the glass-enclosed viewing area!
When you watch the gorilla video clip, listen for the cast member (CM) saying "...you will have nightmares for the rest of your life!" Some kid went under the rope and climbed up on to the ledge of the window, which was a definite NO-NO. And, despite more than a couple of stern warnings by the CM for the kid's parent(s) to get him out of there, the CM basically warned everyone that if the gorilla gets mad, ALL of us will be sorry and "have nightmares for the rest of our lives". I believe him. The kid's parents finally pulled him away from the window....
Also in this video is Gaston, albeit briefly. He surprised us we were having a snack outside of Gaston's Tavern so I wasn't able to get it all on video. He did comment on the fact that Anna was focused on sipping her lemonade though!
