THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, JULY 11, 2010
“Welcome to Polynesia!”
by Tim Devine
Probably my favorite of all the Extra Magic Hours is Animal Kingdom. This may come as a surprise to most of you since there is fairly little to do during AKEMH (gotta love those Disney acronyms), but just being in the park at night is a treat in itself. The Imagineers and designers did a wonderful job with the lightscaping, making sure every the light on every structure and shadows they cast fall just perfectly into place. One of the areas that I neglect, however, is Dinoland at night. Since I am usually so busy checking out the beautiful scenery in Asia, Africa, Discovery Island, and the Oasis, I tend to overlook Dinoland. Since Ryan Wilson of MainStreetGazette.com suggested Dinoland at night for today’s POTD, I just might have to pay more attention to Dinoland when we go back to the ‘World in a few weeks.
