PHOTO REPORT: Disney’s Animal Kingdom 9/10/20 (Scar Cupcake, New Kilimanjaro Safaris Structure, John Smith, and More)

We visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom on a not-so-crowded day after Labor Day weekend to see what was in store for us.

DinoLand U.S.A. bulletin board.

You can find a reference to “Countdown to Extinction,” which was the original name of “DINOSAUR” until 2000, on this bulletin board in DinoLand U.S.A.

The bulletin board has a map of DinoLand U.S.A. featuring the attraction with the label “Countdown to Extinction YOU MUST GO HERE!”

Kilimanjaro Safaris line

Kilimanjaro Safaris had a 20-minute wait in the park’s early hours.

Big Red and Little Red poster

It’s nice that they kept this reference to “Big Red” and “Little Red” in the queue. These two elephants were original characters in the attraction.

Progress continues on this new themed structure near the end of the attraction.
