I have experienced the splendor of bird on a stick but once. I despair of ever seeing it again.

Still really like AK, even if it's a half day park right now.

The Disney Parks Blog has been following our progress as a new animal habitat was added to the end of the Kilimanjaro Safaris as a home for a herd of plains zebras. I am pleased to share a photo from the zebras’ first day out (yesterday, October 23) taken by Disney photographer Gene Duncan.

Guests are having lots of fun snapping their own photos of the zebras, which in the wild live in eastern and southern Africa. And our animal care team is continuing to keep a close eye on the various members of the herd as they acclimate to their new habitat. The team reports that they are doing great.

It seems like when ever I go on the Safari the animals are never anywhere close to the vehicle making photos hard to get.

Try to go on one of the last safaris of the day before they close at sunset. The animals are more active since it is cooler, and they tend to make more photo stops since the lines are shorter.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Ya know I was watching the Expedition Everest POV today and heard you mention that... Is it as simple as there was a bird on a stick or is there more to this story?

And from what I understand, he's still there, just doesn't work...and his mechanics to make him work are actually located on the backside of the building..... WAAAAAY in the air...which requires cranes, special equipment to be brought in, maintenance staff paid at "high time", etc, to get working again...and possibly ride downtime.

Needless to say, it hasn't gotten fixed! lol

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It seems like I remember when I was working at Everest that there was a button in the control both on the bank of switches that turned the lighting and effects on and off that was actually labeled "Bird on a Stick" haha.

I also miss the Bird on a Stick.
