I love the early morning and watching the day come to life. Most mornings this was the view of the sun rising over the resort buildings. Even at this early hour of the day it would be quite humid.
Most days because of the heat, we would return to our room for a short while before heading to a different park for the evening. Our balcony in the afternoons was a wonderful place to find shadows.
I enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching them.
Sometimes they would be off in the distance.
While other times they would be much closer.
If there wasn't many to be found in the savanna of our room, then I would go down to the lobby viewing area to see if there were any stirring around there. The window was three stories tall and such a beautiful sight.
The many pathways around the resort are lined with plants, flowers and shrubs. Speakers are hidden among them playing African music softly.
I found two particular ones to be especially interesting
These two had similar flowers but one was a tree like plant while the other was more of a bush.
The flowers felt almost rubbery to touch. I asked a couple of the people working there if they knew what the plants are, but they did not. They mainly knew about the animals. I guess not many inquire about the landscaping.
Anyway, this is a few more of the many, many photos I took during our Disney World Vacation. All of the ones posted here were taken at Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. It is a very nice place to stay and quite interesting too, being able to view the animals and to learn about them. It is very animal friendly too. You are not allowed to hang anything on the balcony. (No beach towels etc...) No balloons are allowed at the resort or in the Animal Kingdom Park. Also no plastic straws, all the straws are paper. It's very different using a paper straw.
Even the lights in the animal viewing area are animal friendly.
The entire outside of the lights are covered with corn. I suppose so that if the decorations were to fall off the animals would not be harmed by them if they ate them. Disney does think of everything!
The only thing that we didn't like about the resort is the fact that it is so far away from everything other than Animal Kingdom Park. But, I guess you can't have everything.

Happy Sunday, Everyone!!
