Today we have our very own British Diva in the “digs”! Jane from Tips from the Disney Diva goes back in time to Disney’s Animal Kingdom 2002.
2002 was a whirling twirling year for DinoLand U.S.A. as those clever Imagineers revealed for our continued enjoyment two family friendly rides to this brightly coloured carnivalesque spot- TriceraTop Spin and Primeval Whirl; both are designed to thrill all age groups from the Triassic to the Cretaceous!
If you adore flying up and down, round and around just like on the beloved Dumbo ride at the Magic Kingdom, then you’re going to equally love TriceraTop Spin.
Both rides are situated within Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama area, which is accessible via the “OldenGate Bridge” from Discovery Island. Here you can easily spot the massive Concretasurus which always makes for a good keepsake snapshot. I always recommend a visit with Sue…she is a replica of the largest complete Tyrannosaurus Rex to be discovered to date and so named after the American paleontologist Sue Hendrickson, who unearthed this massive skeleton in South Dakota in 1990.
We have a Round 3 Finalist for the Disney Parks Moms Panel in the house!!! Jane is a freelance writer with a “wild” passion for Disney. Follow her @janie_duckworth, on Facebook and Pinterest.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom 2003? Tomorrow Mike Ellis @Mickey_MDOD will lead the pack!
I confess! I've never seen those ghosts on Primeval Whirl. (I really need to keep my eyes open more often!!) We're honored to have you with us today Jane. 😀
That funny moment when I am 99.9% sure I am the cast member who ruined your photo. -_- Sorry.
No kidding?? That's spectacular- you are PART of it, not the ruination!!! Thanks for the ride. 😀
Haha well you are defiantly welcome! Yeah the more I look at it the more sure I am that that is me. I hope you guys find our little ghost tributes! It's one of my favorite things about my ride.
