If you have been following my Twitter or Instagram (you should be!), you will know that I have two trips to Disney World booked for next year. This was absolutely not how I planned on doing my trip announcement, so bear with me. Disney have previously announced this magical date of September 26th which is when all the current COVID related changes were planning on ending. This was until last week when I got an email from them.

Walt Disney World has two Rainforest Cafe locations; one at Animal Kingdom and one at Disney Springs. My favourite location is by far the Animal Kingdom location. It fits in perfectly with the theming of Animal Kingdom, and it also has its own secret entrance into the park!
