Ah, what could’ve been…
Here’s some tangible evidence of Animal Kingdom’s never-built land, Beastly Kingdom.
From the top: The original Animal Kingdom logo featuring a dragon. The large dragon’s head that decorates one of the park’s ticket booths. The dragon rock/fountain, once seen on the Discovery River ride. The smoking (and occasionally fire-breathing) cave, ALSO once glimpsed on the Discovery River ride. The Animal Kingdom’s Unicorn Lot sign. A small, plastic dragon released as a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy to promote the park’s opening in 1998. The Happy Meal box containing the aforementioned toy.
FOREVER BITTER BEASTLY KINGDOM ISN’T A THING. WE DON’T NEED AVATARLAND. WE NEED BEASTLY KINGDOM.
What is a flotation tank?
500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).
The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.

The “Art of Aurora” Collection - Disney Store
I’ve been wanting to post about this mini collection for so long, and now I finally can! Out today at the Disney Store. I created artwork, a snow globe and ornament set to help celebrate the upcoming DVD release of Sleeping Beauty. There is a limited edition litho set with two extra pieces of art I created just for this set. Also available are a mug, journal set, jewelry box and jumbo pin that has already sold out! It was a lot of fun being able to play with different art styles and product for this “art of” collection. I will be sharing more of a close up look in the upcoming weeks. But for now, I hope you enjoy this look at the whole collection. :)
