Animal Kingdom Update: Africa Keeps Growing (PART 1)

Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is growing. After having been neglected for years, the park is finally starting to receive a lot of much-needed love that will ultimately help in transforming this half-day park into a full-day experience that will engage all of our senses. New restaurants  and dining locations (many) and attractions (still too few) are scheduled to open in the next two-to-three years. lets take a look around and check on the progress that has been done so far.
