Africa is one of the original areas of the Animal Kingdom (AK) park. Set in the fictional east African port village and the Harambe Wildlife Preserve is home of Africa’s main attraction, Kilimanjaro Safaris. Guests climb aboard an open-sided safari vehicle for an expedition to see African species in savanna, rivers and rocky hills. On the adjacent Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, visitors trek into the forest where black-and-white colobus monkeys, gerenuks, gorillas, hippos, Kenyan sand boas, kori bustards, meerkats, naked mole-rats, okapis, tarantulas, and yellow-backed duikers, as well as an aviary, are all nested. On the western side of Africa is the Harambe Theater, home to the Festival of the Lion King, a stage attraction based on the 1994 Disney animated hit film.

On its vast 47sq mile property (one-and-half-times territory of Manhattan island in NYC!), WDW constructed as many as 23 themed resorts, operating today under its brand name. The original Contemporary and Polynesian resorts have blossomed from their introductory $13/night pricing to some $1000/night in highly demanded school break weeks! The grandeur of Grand Floridian tops them all, marble and all: its lobby orchestra, its gigantic hand-crafted bird cage, the reputed Faberge eggs we observed this Easter season and the ceiling-high Xmas tree at year’s end, the magnificent Wedding pavilion, the glam restauranteurs…And then the timeless ingenuity of the craftsmen of the gigantic Wilderness Lodge, seemingly erected yesterday 40+ years later – although one struggles to spot a single nail within its seven-story authentic wooden majesty!
We thoroughly enjoyed exclusive “pirate boat” rides along the natural Bay Lake – all the way between the Magic Kingdom and the Wilderness Campground, with its Saloon-styled dinner shows and the Perscheron champion horses. 2400lb of a horse!

AK is a wholly zoological theme park, and is the largest theme park in the world (580 acres)! When conceived, AK was to focus on three broad classifications of animals: those that exist in today’s reality; those that did exist but are now extinct (dinosaurs); and those that only exist in the realm of fantasy! AK opened on Earth Day April 22, 1998, and is the newest completed WDW park themed entirely around the natural environment and animal conservation, a philosophy pioneered by Walt Disney. AK is accredited by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, in that it has met or exceeded the standards in education, conservation, and research. AK’s symbol is the Tree of Life. AK hosts10m+ visitors annually, the fourth-most visited amusement park in the US, right behind the other three WDW parks! AK is divided into six themed areas, notably Discovery Island, Africa, Asia, DinoLand U.S.A. From parking, or off the Disney bus, enter Rainforest Café prior to entering The Oasis (main entrance), whosepaths lead deeper in AK via Discovery Island. This is the center of the park, in the middle of the Discovery River waterway, the central hub connecting the other sections of the park.
The Tree of Life, the park’s sculpted, man-made 145-foot-tall 50-foot-wide Baobab tree, is surrounded by trails and animal enclosures. Beneath it lies It’s Tough to Be a Bug!, a wonderful 4D experience based on the 1998 Disney· Pixar film “A Bug’s Life”.

On April 11th 2017, World Liberty TV were guests of the Walt Disney World’s (WDW) oldest (Magic Kingdom- MK) and newest (Animal Kingdom- AK) parks.
Built in 1971, MK is the world’s most visited theme park in the world. Current attendance is 20m+ every year, and rising! MK was built on a man-made hill, allowing Cast Members (CMs) and VIP guests to move unseen via underground tunnels. MK is comprised of six Lands: Main Street U.S.A, AdventureLand, FrontierLand, Liberty Square, TomorrowLand and FrontierLand.
Guests initially reach park entrance via a huge ferry, small pirate boats, 6 original monorail trains, resort shuttle buses — all of which are part of WDW’s complimentary transportation system within its vast 47sq. mile territory. Those brave enough to fight incoming (and outgoing in the evening) traffic, pay parking toll at remote gates, find a spot likely a mile away, and then await for the long golf-style trains to carry them toward security check-in and turnstyles (do yourself a favor: go green and use Disney Transportation instead!)…Once inside MK, we traveled on its exclusive mile-and-half railroad, getting on and off in at least 3 lands!

Ocean Cay is founded on a deep commitment to ecological principles that shape everything from how the venues are built and how the island is run, to the kinds of activities featured on the island.
Formerly a sand extraction site, MSC Cruises has made significant efforts to clear the island and the surrounding ocean bed from all discarded debris – while removing a total of 7,500 tons of scrap metal – and relocating coral with the longer-term vision of encouraging coral to grow and repopulate.
These efforts will give guests the opportunity to learn about the protection of the oceans and the importance of preserving coral reefs through dedicated edutainment programs.
It was truly a great experience for 7 days, it was our first cruise ever, and I am glad we had the honor of cruising on MSC Meraviglia, so much to do and see while you are on the cruise.
We went to all the shows at The Broadway Theatre, with seeing all six shows, which included 2 magic shows, Broadway show, disco show and much more.
The Food was excellent, foods from all over the world were served on different days, so you are not eating the same food each day, included, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Spanish, Caribbean and many more countries. Food is Kosher and Halal. Breakfast was great you can sit in a restaurant and enjoy waiter service at no cost or you can go to the breakfast at the buffet and enjoy varieties of breakfast.
Dinner in the night again you can sign up for one of the restaurants, where you get table service by waiters who work in the restaurant from all over the world. We had great waiters taking care of us, and asking us over and over again if we need anything else, they did this on all seven days as we ate in the same restaurant, food is served very fast, from appetizers, to entrée and desserts. Food was fresh daily and you can eat buffet up to 1am in the morning. You can leave a tip if you like which I think is necessary, but not mandatory.
We enjoyed attending shows at 6 days while we were on the cruise, The Broadway Theatre, which holds close to 1000 Thousand people and was packed each night, the shows are unusually forty-five minutes each. You can take a drink in the theatre as you watch the show.
There was a 2 Broadway shows, a live entertainment by a Canadian singer titled from the stage to screen. Then there were two magic shows, card tricks, mentalist and an illusionist.
The entertainers and singers perform in 4 of the six shows, and also the lady dancers were also host’s helping out with Magicians shows.
I would have liked to see a different cast every night not the same group over and over again. With that said, the entertainment was average in my opinion.
There were many outdoor pools, Jacuzzi’s which you can swim or relax throughout the day. There was no line or waiting period you were able to find something immediately or just jump in with a stranger which did not mind.
There were many activities for Baby’s Kids and young adults, gaming rooms, Computer rooms, daycare centers, while the parents are enjoying a night out, there is all kinds of activities for kids while they are being cared by one of the staff members.
The was dancing every night starting at 10-45 pm till 2am in the morning, at the promenade, with a live DJ and live entertainment bands, music from all over the world. I enjoyed Bollywood dancing and Bob Marley Tribute. There is local bars and waitress’s coming around serving cocktails, soft drinks, Ice cream and chocolate stores are close by if you want to take a break from dancing and indulge in a dessert you like.
We had a pleasure of speaking to master Chocolatier Albert Fabian Sim, who works for jean philippe, world renowned Chocolatier, you would be able to see exclusive interview with him in our Video below.
We stopped by Nassau capital of Bahamas, visited the Atlantis Resort, Cabbage beach and different locations throughout Nassau. We were not able to do too much because of the weather.
We were not able to go to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, because of a storm and was instead diverted to Miami in Florida, I was really interested in visiting. But we had to be safe, maybe will get another opportunity next time.
One an average I would recommend this cruise, for couples or a family as there is so many things to do, eat and enjoy.
