Today I took my camera to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

I should mention that I put on the most touristy clothes I could muster – my Hawaiianest shirt (which is admittedly not very Hawaiian looking – I’ll need to find a better one), a straw fedora, button-up cargo shorts with more pockets than I’ll ever need, and of course, dark socks with running shoes. Bam!

As soon as I arrived at Animal Kingdom, I went on the Kilimanjaro Safaris ride and took some pictures (pro tip: do the ride as early as possible in the morning, when the animals are still relatively active and not lethargic from the Florida sun), then went on some of the nature walks (the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail and the Maharajah Jungle Trek). I had a Fastpass for Expedition Everest, but I skipped it. I was more in the mood for walking around and taking pictures.

I also got this up-close picture of a lion!
