More characters have returned to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but that doesn’t mean the end of Character Cruises! (Disney calls them Flotillas, but I’ve always said Character Cruises and I’m a continuity freak.) Because of Disney KiteTails, they are now more bunched together. The other day I saw five cruises between 1:34 and 1:56, and then six between 2:33 and 2:54! My favorite spot to watch is still on the bridge between Pandora and Africa. There’s plenty of shade, and you can get really close shots if you’re taking pictures or videos. I was thrilled to see Russell from Up, as well as Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack.
