    Yay for the park that I kind of forgot about! If I hadn't visited Marine World in it's pre-thrill rides heyday, you'd be #1.

    amazing how one coaster (that's only open on weekends*) can change one's perspective.

    But it's grown to lose my favorite WDW stage show in the process.

    Re: Happy Birthday Animal Kingdom!

    I think that the original park concept was a great one, it was just that the park debuted rather skimpy. Having gone that first year, it was just not enough there for a whole day. There were also some design mistakes, boats for around the Tree of Life for example. More design stupidity followed with the Dinoland.

    All Animal Kingdom needed was MORE! More rides, more to do and more quality. Although, I have yet to ride Expedition Everest, I am very much looking forward to it. My hope is that the original concept, an animal-experience centered park, does not get watered down into a thrill ride park.

    Having said all that, I wish Disney's Animal Kingdom many happy returns (of guests to the park!).

    Happy B-Day to an amazing and unique park that shows that Disney can stil dazzle in Florida when the accountants and execs loosen the pursestrings.

    Just an amazing place. Thanks Joe!
