Busch Gardens Skyride with Cheetah Hunt in the background

Skyride Busch Gardens Tampa Bay: The Best Way to Get Around the Park

The Skyride at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is a cable-car that runs across the park. Allowing you to get stunning views of the Florida theme park from 50 feet up in the sky.

This gives you the opportunity to take in the glorious skyline without being worried about the next stomach-lurching drop.

You must be thinking ‘Well, hold on. Aren’t the stomach-lurching drops the reason people go to theme parks?’

I didn’t mention the animals now, did I? 

You get amazing views of these cute cuddly creatures and the not so cuddly ones (all animals are cute) from the top.

I’m talking rhinos, tigers, gazelles, lions and even (wait for it) giraffes and elephants. 

This makes me want to pack my bag and get over there right now!

Rafiki's Planet Watch Conservation Station at Disney Animal Kingdom Harambe Railway Station Sign

Rafiki’s Planet Watch: Animal Kingdom’s Best Kept Secret

Have you ever heard of Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?

I find that when guests visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom, most people are so focused on getting to the Avatar: World of Pandora, Expedition Everest or any of the other bigger attractions.

What people fail to remember is the purpose of the park, which is to educate about nature, creatures and how to help with conservation.

Guests also fail to take some time to slow their roll. And so, Disney decided to resolve that problem with Rafiki’s Planet Watch. It’s so hidden that most guests do not even realize what or where it is despite it being on a park map or asking questions to Cast Members.

And yes, Rafiki’s Planet Watch is still open at Animal Kingdom.

Now if you prefer certain attractions or shows, that’s understandable. However, allow me to gather your attention as we dive into what makes Rafiki’s Planet Watch worth a visit.

Rise to the Challenge: Rise of the Resistance Virtual Queue and Boarding Group FAQ

Are you having a hard time using the Rise of the Resistance virtual queue to get on this popular Disney attraction? Trust me, I understand your frustration.

With Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary just 4 months away, it’s important to know several things.
