This is it, folks, the last episode of “The Rohdes, Less Traveled.” This episode illuminates how light evokes emotion and how we use lighting throughout Disney’s Animal Kingdom to create unique environments. 

I hope you have enjoyed following “The Rohdes, Less Traveled” as we showcased some of the intricate details found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. And, I hope you are inspired to take a second look at the details around you, wherever you may be.



  • Joe, thank you and your family for this series. It is always great to learn more about such an incredible park.

  • These were lots of fun and informative, thanks for doing them!

    One of the most interesting things to me was one of the points in the Ageing and Patina segment. While it would of course be very difficult to not notice that the environment is intentionally weathered to look older than it is, it never occurred to me how that subconsciously plays to our mind and the idea that we are joining a story that has been playing out for a long time.

    All the other segments were really cool too! But that one discussion gave me the “light bulb” moment. Very cool!
