IMG_4124-WDW-AK-Dino-ParkingThere are dinosaurs at Disney! Upon arrival at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida, Guests are presented with their first exposure to these ancient critters. My friend Robin taught me the value of taking a photo of the navigational signs in the parking lot. If you cannot remember where you parked at the end of a long day at play, you can always refer back to photographic evidence obtained upon arrival. As you can see, on this particular day I parked in the dinosaur section.

IMG_4126-WDW-AK-Dino-Drive-ThruDisney’s Animal Kingdom is set up in themed “lands”. There’s The Oasis when you first enter the park, the central hub called Discovery Island (where the Tree of Life “grows”), then Camp Minie Mickey, Asia, Africa and – you guessed it! – Dinoland! This billboard for the McDonald’s franchise in Dinoland always cracks me up. Can you imagine being a poor Mickey D’s drive-through clerk and having a T-Rex pull up to the window? Yikes! 😯

IMG_4128-WDW-AK-Dino-RamaAh, we’ve arrived at Chester and Hester’s Din-o-rama! This area of Dinoland is themed like a midway, with rides appropriate for the younger crowd as well as games of chance where stuffed animals can be won. I have to admit I’m not a fan of this section. I’m no good at games of chance, and one of the rides, affectionately nicknamed by some as “Primeval Hurl”, knocks me around too much. I’m getting too old in the bones to be knocked around like that!

IMG_4125-WDW-AK-Dino-StonesHere’s a cute critter made of stone and decorated mosaic style. I think he’s located pretty close to the aforementioned McDonald’s “billboard”. I can sometimes become obsessed with photographing all the stone and carved statues of critters sprinkled around Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Hmmm, I think I smell a Camera Critters series coming on! Anyway… can you spot the baby dinosaur in this photo?

Happy Critturday!

  1. Hi – oh, we love your camera critters! We do enjoy spotting posts that are a little bit different and we bet these will be the only dinos to appear in this weeks camera critters, he he he! 😀 Schnauzer snuggles – JD and Max.

  2. Clever idea to photograph the parking lot especially as I get more and more forgetful. Very cute little dinosaur under the protection of mom.
