PHOTOS – Park Hopping at Animal Kingdom and EPCOT on a Busy Holiday Weekend

Share This!

Visiting Walt Disney World on a busy holiday weekend certainly does mean crowds. But with the current state of COVID-19 precautions the crowds become even more noticeable as physical distancing leads to extended queues. Chrissy on our team started her day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and then park hopped over to EPCOT.

Not much is new at Animal Kingdom, but we are excited to see that a waste bin for compost has been added to Dino-Bites in Dinoland USA. Perhaps this is just a test, but if any park should lead the way in conservation and environmentalism it’s Animal Kingdom.

Preparations for the Flower and Garden Festival continue to bloom around EPCOT, especially at Future World West. The Butterfly Garden has a new location this coming year, near the Imagination Pavilion. And also on the West side of the park, more Leave a Legacy tiles are on display, now outside the West entrance.
