MGM Studios.

The brilliant minds at Walt Disney first had the idea for a movies-based park half a century ago. However, it wasn't until May 1989 that the idea first came to life. Walt Disney Company unveiled the Disney-MGM Studios. The new concept was an instant hit with guests getting that first-hand experience at how the whole phenomenon breathes. Walt Disney opened its doors so ordinary citizens can witness the inner workings of living, breathing movie and television production facilities all in a day's work.

Think of it as a crash course in film production minus the pomposity. Through its exciting attractions, like the new Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Broadway-caliber shows, and hands-on participation, the Disney-MGM Studios not only entertain but educate. In the last decade or so, the Studios have nearly doubled in size and have continued to grow. Part of the largest property-wide expansion in Walt Disney World history is the creation of the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. The indoor roller coaster boasts a high-speed launch of 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. That's wild!

Disney's Animal Kingdom.

You think you've seen it all at Disney but the Disney's Animal Kingdom is a spectacular theme park unlike anything you have ever experienced. Check it out!

The blueprint for the park came to life in January 1990 when Imagineering Concept Designer Joe Rohde met with Michael Eisner about a proposal for a new animal park. The original concept was simple: a traditional theme park, an Epcot style pavilion, and a nontraditional zoo. The Disney's Wild Animal Kingdom Project was officially unveiled on June 5, 1995 and ground was broken in August 1995. With a few changes here and there, including the name, over the next couple years the project was finally completed as Disney's Animal Kingdom on April 22, 1998.

The best time to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom is 15 minutes before the schedule opening time. Go around the turnstiles right into the Tree of Life area. A little while thereafter, the more popular characters in Disney-Minnie, Pluto, and Goofy, arrive to welcome you to the park! Then Mickey comes about and gets on the truck beckoning you to take his lead into Harambe as the adventure begins in the Animal Kingdom! It also has an afternoon parade, Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade.
