Disney's Animal Kingdom  

Posted by Jackson

The international student services of my university's department decided to organize a trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom last Saturday. Students have to sign up and pay for the tickets earlier as we'll be getting it at a cheaper rate. My roommate, Terence, and I decided to go on tag along earlier last week as we had nothing planned.

But due to unforeseen circumstances, he ditched me to go test drive his MKV GTI that he is planning to buy this coming fall. Since I already paid for the ticket, I thought to myself, "Oh what the heck, I am just gonna go without him." And so I went.

On the morning of Saturday, we had to gather in front of the student center at 9:00 am. Apparently only a handful of the students signed up for it.

And so we depart. The journey took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car. When we reached there, it was packed!! The crowd was huge and I thank god that we bought the ticket earlier, letting us skip that long line in front of the ticket counter.

And so I decided to be anti social and go off on my own since my friend isn't here. First thing I do when I went in was to look for a directory and for maps.

Then I had to plan my route so that I can cover as much as possible with the limited time I have.

So right now I am at the entrance at the Oasis.

They just have random animals here so I went walking around taking random pictures of animals.

Where the fuck is the duck?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Oh there it is.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Wtf! Even more ducks, they must have some Chinese restaurant here that sells Peking Duck.

Then I saw a BABI....

... an iguana I think??
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Some birds too.

Eh! Iago from Alladin!

Ok so this part of the park was pretty boring, nothing out of the ordinary that was worth seeing. I then moved on to Discovery Island where I expect to "discover new things."

But WTF man, I got conned. I saw a...

...stupid bridge and ...
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
... a stupid lemur from Madagascar. Worse than the last area.

The next area I decided to go was Asia, since I'm from there, to see if it is "Truly Asia."

First attraction I came across was the Maharajah Jungle Trek.

Haha wtf sound so India right.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Yea the ruins gave me an India atmosphere.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Wow got Tigger. But then, things start to get a little strange...
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
India got deer one mer?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I thought Komodo Dragons only in Indonesia???
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Then got tree frogs..
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
and bats... Aiya shit man. I then decided to get the fuck out of that place and went for a roller coaster ride.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The ride was pretty unique in the sense that, it was the first ride I was on that falls backwards. I wanted to sneak my camera out to take a video but I got caught and was told to tuck it away. After the bars came down on me, it was difficult to get the camera out of my pants so I left it at that. This ride was probably child's play after going to Busch Gardens twice, but it was fun, nevertheless.

After the ride, it was already half past noon. I skipped breakfast so I was already hungry. I didn't want to spend too much on lunch and since all the shops around were fucking scams, I decided to walk over to Africa area before getting lunch.

When I got there, all the shops were crowded so I went for the one with the shortest line. Even then, I had to wait in line for almost half an hour to get this...

Stupid burger and water cost me 10 bucks man. DAYLIGHT ROBBERY!!! GIMME MY MONEY BACK!!!

After filling my tummy, I needed to rest a bit, so I went for the Safari Ride, where I get to sit down and see animals sun bathing.

Disney's ability to give fancy names for simple things never ceases to amaze me. I waited in line till it was finally my turn to get on the ride. While I was sitting in the car waiting for the cars in front to move, I got bored so I took some random pictures.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Too bad the driver is a guy, not a Chio Bu, otherwise I would have taken the face too. And look what I saw
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Let's see if I can find Timon and Pumba. First thing I saw...
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
was a gazelle... I think...
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Wait, wtf, this one also Gazelle right? Shit I don't know anymore!
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Then I saw Ah Gu and some Kambings
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Somehow this animal reminded me of Kee Bing. Then it started to get boring cause... just cause...

WTF! Can see the elephant's baby elephant in action?!?!? KNN like water fall OMG!
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Okok, a proper shot of the elephant.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Saw some very rare white rhinos. Apparently, this is an endangered species. There are less than 4000 of these big guys in the world. All thanks to poachers. How come people made so many youtube videos of "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!" but no one made a "LEAVE RHINOS ALONE!!" video?

Saw some flamingos

and some pelicans. Their beaks look alot smaller than the ones in Finding Nemo. It was already hard enough to take pictures when the car is always moving but this bitch decided to come and shove her arm into my picture.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
OMG! PUMBA! Where's Timon?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
DIU!! The lazy ass lion keep sleeping don't want to wake up.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Big birds...
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

My ride finally came to an end. I had my rest, and now it is sometime for some walking to digest my "10 Dollar Burger."
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Ok next, time to take train to see some weird animals.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Train ride took about 3 minutes. Thank god the place I am heading to now is air conditioned. I know it sounds sissy but heck my back is drenched in sweat from the heat.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Wah so big man. These things can be found in Indonesia and Malaysia, how come I've never seen it before?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
One wrong move and that boy is going to get gang raped by a group of goats.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Emperor's New Groove?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
YA! Invite mosquitoes right? Apparently Disney doesn't know what mosquito breeding ground is.

Now, it's time to take the train back to visit last part of the Animal Kingdom. Jurrasic Park....
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Dinoland... What to do? Sponsored by McDonalds. Wasted my time coming here, just some children rides. I guess now it's finally time to leave and go home... but wait! What's a trip to Disney without seeing Mickey and Minnie right?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Haihz so many people I lazy queue so wtf I just took a picture from the side. Now it's finally time to go back. I was dead tired after walking around the whole place that I fell asleep on the way back. To sum it all up, Disney's Animal Kingdom is a very expensive zoo.
