I've been to Animal Kingdom 3 or 4 times since Primeval Whirl opened, and never got the credits. Always thought "eh, maybe next time, there are better things to do here."

Honestly, the one at Fun Spot is better and that's just not a sequence of words that you should say about any ride at Walt Disney World.

Primeval Whirl and more surprisingly, Rivers of Light confirmed to be closed permanently via CM memo

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Primeval Whirl closing is perfectly fine. I do understand what Disney was going for with Dinoland USA and recognize there is actually a pretty substantial backstory to it, which is neat. However, it fell flat for me time and time again.

I really cannot understand though why they would close Primeval Whirl but keep that section of the park open. It seems bizarre, if you ask me. It would be like Radiator Springs Racer closing for good and keeping the other two flats. I mean, you could do it. But it just seems bare now.

Rivers of Light was an enjoyable show. And a necessary show. But it didn't wow me or anything. I hope they're replacing and not just eliminating, but we'll see.

Animal Kingdom is (by Disney standards) actually a pretty terrible park for little kids (in terms of rides... obviously they have great animal exhibits). TriceraTop Spin is one of only (I think) three rides in the park that doesn’t have a height requirement and the only one of those three that doesn’t normally have multi-hour waits (Navi River Journey and Safari being the other two). It’s also available to expectant mothers. I actually can’t think of any other ride in the park that is except for Navi River Journey.

I never thought about any of this until we went with some friends of ours last year and they had a little kid and another one on the way. At Magic Kingdom they can ride tons of rides, but at Animal Kingdom you’re mostly SOL.

So thanks to them we can now say that we’ve been on TriceraTop spin which wasn’t a ride I ever thought I’d ride. :lol:

To sum up my recent experience today, on a weekend:

I got on Flight of Passage twice. That is all.
