      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Informative and Inexpensive
      Cons: Brief

      My three daughters and I booked this tour to just add something different to our trip. The big plus for me was that it was short, so it wouldn't take a lot of time away from their list of things they wanted to do, and the cost was very reasonable, so for our family of four, we were able to add it even after the budget was pretty well set.

      A brief introduction is followed by a short bus ride to the viewing area. While no one is guaranteed the actual location of the elephants, they estimate you are about 100 feet from these beautiful creatures, and after many times riding the Kiliminjaro Safari ride, I will say they did feel much closer.

      There is an elephant expert that provides information about the herd at Disney's Animal Kingdom, such as the names of the elephants, how much food they eat, how much, ummm, "waste" they create, and other details. There are then two brief presentations from cast members from Africa, basically giving information about how the animals and people live peacefully together.

      They give you plenty of time for photos, and there is ample opportunity to ask questions. Before your short bus ride back, you are given one of the Disney conservation buttons, as part of your tour fee goes toward these efforts.

      My girls are ages 12, 16, and 25, and all of them walked away feeling it was well worth the time to do this tour. They loved seeing the elephants interact with each other, and they enjoyed learning more about the animals and the facilities at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

      Definitely recommend!
