At the entrance another tree took out the fence around the black swan pond. They've put up a temporary one for now.

Flight of Passage was hands down the best ride I have ever been on! I haven't even seen the movie (I know I know) but it blew my mind! We had fastpass and it took about 10 mins BUT the wait in standby was about 110 minutes.

The river ride had some down time so the FastPass was extremely long once we went over, so we skipped the 120 minute wait in standby.

I saw a women push an employee on the shoulder who was explaining to guest why the FastPass line was so long (due to the downtime). Who acts like that and more SO acts like that in Disney???

Festival of the Lion King continues to be one of the best shows at Walt Disney World. From humble beginnings as a quick fix filler for the park's opening it is now a constant crowd pleaser with over a dozen performances every day (that all fill to capacity).

It's clear from your vacant expressions
The lights are not all on upstairs
But we're talking kings and successions
Even you can't be caught unawares

small-5956.jpg
So prepare for a chance of a lifetime
Be prepared for sensational news
A shining new era
Is tiptoeing nearer
And where do we feature?
Just listen to teacher

small-5964.jpg
I know it sounds sordid
But you'll be rewarded
When at last I am given my dues
And injustice deliciously squared
Be prepared!

Can you feel the love tonight?

It's the band of hope

Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Hello everyone, I hope it is ok to post this here , since my main question is regarding Animal Kingdom. I just scored some decent plane tickets and it looks like my girlfriend and I will be headed to Orlando February 7-13. A couple of people told me this may be close to February’s school breaks but I am unsure and wanted to ask some locals if this is a good week To go crowd wise.

I want to get a two day park hopper for Disney, a two day ticket for Universal and a one day ticket forSea World. Should this be enough time to get everything done at Disney? (The two day hopper) I am worried Pandora will be super busy, what would be my best bet for making sure I get the Avatar rides done this week? Thanks in advance!

Local schools are not out at all that week, but that is a week you'll see a lot of random northern schools out as well as South American groups.

When you ask if two days is enough at Disney you have to tell us a bit more about what you'd like to do at Disney? We just talked about this a lot in CoasterBill's thread (http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=75479) so I would check there first for some info on doing Pandora and more.
