Fun Find Friday

January 11, 2013

In honor of our two year anniversary it only makes sense to talk about two different fun finds and how the two of them connect together. Let's start off by traveling to an area where we've spent a lot of time over the past two years: Dinoland, USA.

While inside the restaurant Restaurantosaurus the storyline which focuses around the dig is more evident than ever, and it's here that we truly get to know the characters Disney has created to help tell the story. One section of the restaurant, The Hip Joint, allows guests to see how these budding paleontologist students relax after a long day of digging dinosaur bones. Upon the wall you can even find a game where they release stress:

The rules of the game are simple. You must hit the Big Bang to begin scoring. Scoring ends in the tenth round, and you must hit the Quarternary to win. While the game showcases how these fictional characters are relaxing, it's even more important to note their names, Dr. McGee, Sam, Jenny, and Mark. In addition to these characters others can be found within the room and help tell the story of this screwball crew of scientists.

This isn't the only part of the park that has an underlying storyline that focuses around a group of students and their relationships together. As time goes on we'll focus more on the characters in Dinoland, USA, but today I'd like to introduce you to a different, and much more serious, group of scientists that are hard at work over in Africa, more specifically, the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail.

While the storyline in Dinoland, USA focuses on the wacky (which makes sense since the subjects they are studying are dinosaurs so they can't really do any harm to their livelihood) the ones over at Pangani Forest are much more serious, but through careful observation throughout the trail, and a few sections in Africa, we will discover that despite the serious storyline, the relationships between our characters seems very real.

Our head honcho over in Africa is Dr. K. Kulunda. And as you can see from the crate above our storyline does begin in the fictitious Harambe. As time goes on we will take a much closer look at Dr. Kulunda and her students, along with the wacky crew over in Dinoland, USA. These two storylines can actually cover a years worth of Fun Finds just by themselves, but we will obviously be covering other sections of Walt Disney World in the meantime as well.

Thank you for everyone who has been reading for the past two years. I said it last year, and I'll say it again, we haven't even begun to scratch the surface so be prepared and we'll see you once again next Friday!
