The TRON attraction is set to open at Magic Kingdom Park in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for future updates.
Also, our ongoing Wildlife Wednesday series featured a special look at the latest addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Jabari the giraffe calf.
Now standing at seven-feet-tall, Jabari has spent the past few months bonding with his mom Mara in a backstage habitat. This week, he returned to the Kilimanjaro Safari savanna to officially join the rest of the giraffe herd.
Visit Scott’s original Jabari the Giraffe Calf Joins The Herd story for details and more great images.
