Animal Kingdom Lodge - An Afternoon Outside the Parks

I recently had out of town house guests who didn't have park passes but wanted to visit WDW. We decided on lunch at Sanaa in Kidani Village followed by a tour of the savannahs.

Kidani Village


Animal Kingdom Lodge is made up of 2 complexes, Jambo House and Kidani Village. Jambo House opened first and initially was totally a "regular" resort. Then the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) took over some of the rooms and transformed them into villas and construction on a total DVC resort, Kidani, was underway.

Kidani Village

Kidani Village has 2 animal savannahs, Sunset Savannah (which is shared with Jambo House) and the Pembe Savanah.

You don't have to look far at Kidani for animals especially if you dine at Sanna. We saw several giraffes wander by the windows during lunch.

After dining, we went out to the overlook and enjoyed seeing lots of animals and birds wandering around.

Next we headed over to the Pembe Savannah. To reach this one, you must go back out the lobby and turn right. Pass the swimming and recreation areas and finally you will reach a small viewing area. I had hoped to see the Okapi, but they were not visible.

We went back to the car and headed to Jambo House. (There is a shuttle that runs between the two resorts). Three savannahs at Jambo, from left to right, Sunset, Arusha and Uzima.

Not much happening at the Sunset Savannah so we went to Arusha Rock.

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration - Part 1

Deb Wills

SeaWorld - no, your eyes do not deceive you, Deb is writing about SeaWorld!

I hadn't been to SeaWorld in, well, 20 or more years, until the other night.

Lots has changed since my one and only visit. I've been reading Kristin's blogs all year about the fun things happening at SeaWorld. So, when the invitation to visit during SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration came -- I decided I was going!

After checking in, our first stop was for dinner at Santa's Fireside Feast. As you dine, Santa, his elves, and Mrs. Clause entertain you with the classic holiday stories such as The Night Before Christmas. All of the entertainers were excellent and the elves were especially fun! Santa was great with both children and adults!

For full details On Santa's Fireside Feast, read Kristin's blog HERE.

This special holiday dinner is held on select nights in November and December -- Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays -- plus each night during Thanksgiving week and the week before Christmas. The last night is Dec. 24.

There was lots of shows and things to see, but we only had until park closing at 9pm, so we had make some choices.

From dinner we went to O Wondrous Night. This show tells the Christmas story told through the eyes of a variety of animals. O Wondrous Night is both funny, touching and serious with a host of angles, animals and the spirit of Christmas. The actors and puppeteers were all excellent. We would love to see it again. Afterwards, you are able to take photos with some of the stars from the show! We wanted to do the photo op, but had to get to our next show.

Here's the opening of O Wondrous Night followed by photos of the production.

We remained in our seats after the ice show for the grand finale, Holiday Reflections: Fireworks and Fountains! It was a fantastic show with soaring fountains, dazzling lights, and festive fireworks, choreographed to joyous holiday musical favorites.

We totally enjoyed our evening at SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration. The experience was first rate!

We still have several shows to see including Shamu Christmas Miracles,

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration

Clyde and Seamore's Countdown to Christmas

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration


A Sesame Street Christmas, and the THE POLAR EXPRESS Experience.

SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration

Our hope is to get back on our own one night very soon. And, if time allows, we would even enjoy seeing each of the shows again!

Perhaps the best part of SeaWorld's Christmas Celebration? It is all INCLUDED in your park admission ticket for the day!

Hmm. I think I'm off to buy my Florida Resident Fun Card for SeaWorld!

DISCLAIMER: I was a guest of SeaWorld Orlando to experience their Christmas Celebration. This did not influence my story, and my opinions are my own.
