My Upcoming Eco-Adventure in Kissimmee! #DisneyGlobalEvent

by Carrie with Children with 9 comments

Tomorrow, I hit the road on my adventure to Kissimmee and Walt Disney World for the ultimate blogger’s vacation attending the premiere of Disneynature’s new movie, Chimpanzee.  While I’m there, I’m also going to experience some fantastic eco-adventures too!   And I’m not even going to lie… I’m a little anxious!

We’ll be visiting Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida to experience a zip lining safari!  Just check out this picture below from the Florida EcoSafari folks. Doesn’t it look amazing?!  I’m a little scared of heights, so hopefully I won’t chicken out once I get there!

The second half of our day we’ll be taking to the waterways with the Boggy Creek Airboat Rides!    I’ve always seen airboats on television, but never actually experienced one in person.  So this is something I’m excited to do!  (My husband is very jealous, by the way!)

I wonder if we’ll see any alligators?  I hope so!

And…if that’s not enough, we are also getting to experience the Wild Africa Trek tour at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom!  I have heard so many great things about this tour, I’m ecstatic to see it in person!  The tour takes us through the Pangani Forest on a privately guided expedition featuring close encounters with exotic wildlife species.

It’s truly going to be a once in a lifetime adventure!

So….what do you think?   Would you like to try the zip lining and the airboat rides?   Check back in the next few weeks and I’ll update you on my adventure.  Hopefully, I won’t chicken out!

    I will be VERY jealous if you get to pet baby tigers or lions. That’s on my bucket list. Try everything—I probably wouldn’t , but I’m not as brave as you. C
    hance of a lifetime!

      I’ll be on the lookout for baby tigers and lions and take some pictures for you. I’m going to try everything…even the ziplining!

  • Jenny

    This sounds SO cool! Can’t wait to hear all about it! Sounds like a big adventure! I must say I would be a little freaked out about the zipline, but thrilled to be riding the air boats! Good luck, and let us know all the great details of your trip!

      Thanks Jenny! It’s certainly going to be a big adventure! I’m a little nervous about the ziplining, but excited to give it a try! I’ll definitely be sharing my adventures with you over the next few weeks!

    Hope you have a magical adventure. I did the African Trek at Animal Kingdom last year during DisneySMMoms and loved it. Can’t wait to hear all about the items that you do 🙂
