We went to see the often-forgotten “It All Started with a Mouse” show at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. It’s worth a view if you like animals and haven’t seen it before.

Mombasa Marketplace and Ziwani Traders in Africa went through a bit of a remodel, moving cash registers out of the center of the store and adding a better flow to the stores.

Meanwhile, in Pandora, this giant stroller parking area is going unused.

IMG 3304

The effort to keep guests out of Satuli Canteen who aren’t eating there has added these temporary stanchions. Stroller parking is outside of the restaurant.

IMG 3305

Why not turn the old stroller parking into additional seating if this is a huge problem?

Work continues to convert the Flights of Wonder show into a UP bird show.
