Thank you so much for posting this! We are definitely using these ideas for our quaran-cation. We’d love more destinations!
It’s impossible to imagine a more perfect piece of film–live action or animated–than the opening sequence of the 1994 version of “The Lion King.” The movie deserved the Academy Award for Best Picture. Disney film-making at its best!
