Things to do at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

holidaydisneyDisney’s Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite places to visit! There are so many different things to see and do while there, that it is a lot of fun! My job is to engage with potential customers on Facebook and Twitter and tell them about various things that are happening. Another key point that I will be trying to make is how many other things go on at Animal Kingdom that most people don’t know about! I think it is a great way to really capture the magic of what goes on at Disney and Animal Kingdom to show that there is not only the fun, standard rides and events, but that if you delve deeper there are lots of other things you can enjoy.**

Facebook: Wondering what to do while waiting in line with your family? Look for Hidden Mickeys! Hidden Mickeys are something that happened as an inside joke from the Imagineer’s, however, once the concept and idea got out, the idea grew to include them and leave them as something for people to find! It is a great way to pass the time when standing in line, especially since sometimes you will have to use your imagination to find them! They can be in a leopard spot, the pupil of a painted animal, even in a footpath while you walk! Keep your eyes open and let your imagination run wild! If you do find some, snap a picture and use #HiddenMickey to share it with us.

** This post is not in any way affiliated with Disney World, Disney, or Animal Kingdom. This is a mock post about what I think would be a good idea for Disney’s social media programming to implement in the month of December. While many of these are events that will happen, or have happened, this is in no way a guarantee of anything happening at Animal Kingdom. For the most up to date information on Disney’s Animal Kingdom you should always look at their actual site and see what they are offering. Thank you for your understanding!
