In today’s vlog we head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom to become Wilderness Explorers! This is a fun and free activity for families to do in the park! We had so much fun starting our Wilderness Explorers journey. We completed 5 of the badge activities and we became tadpoles! We can’t wait to complete all 29 badge activities and become senior Wilderness Explorers. We definitely recommend checking this out when you’re in the park and if you’re looking for something new to do! We hope you enjoyed joining us on this adventure, and stay tuned for the next part in this series! Thank you for watching and we'll see you tomorrow with a new vid!

  • For the sand sculpture, the whole pile is sprayed with a mix of water and glue so the sand keeps its shape, and can be carved without collapsing.

  • We started doing the badges as well, last week with Earth day celebrations to get the special Earth day sticker. Agreed, a great, free, fun way to check out different stuff in the park. Myself and my son, who is just shy of 18, look forward to getting the rest of the badges on future visits. Benefit of being a local.

  • Small moments like these are great for all sorts of reasons. Maybe a small child can’t go on a big coaster, but the older siblings want to go. Dad takes the older kids and Mom/Grandparents do the Explorer Challenge. People really do have so many options to enjoy something for everyone!

  • The Wilderness Explorer was one of my favourite things at Disney World. I went as an adult and I enjoyed Animal Kingdom but I was bummed that there weren't that many rides. I went on my own so I found it a bit boring compared to some of the other parks and felt like it would've been better if I was with someone. But when I found out about the Wilderness Explorers, it made my day so much better. I was looking around at more stuff in the park and I enjoyed doing the activities. This, the Jack Sparrow thing in Magic Kingdom and the Ratatouille find Remy thing in Epcot were some of my favourite things that I wasn't expecting to do there

  • I love the Tracker's videos. If you're feeling blue, they cheer you up with jokes, giggles and of course, Jackson makes you smile. BUT .. you also learn things ~ like in today's video. We learned that clown fish "has a protective mucus layer on their bodies ... mucus is basically snot, so it's kinda gross, but it's also really helpful." LOLOLOL Love ya, Jen. :)

  • They do change the Explorer Badges so while it can be spread over multiple visits, I recommend trying to complete it in one vacation or inside of 2-3 months. My last Senior Explorer ceremony was January 2019, took 2 days with literally speedwalking through the park. Excited that the next time I visit, most of the (activities for the) badges are brand new.

  • Seems like it would be fun to go and do the side tasks like Wilderness Explorers but I wouldn't call it free unless one has an annual pass and has theoretically already paid. It's not free if your family of 4 has just paid $500+ to get in for one day..

  • Would you guys be able to start uploading videos in 4k? your production quality is already awesome and I think it would improve that much more for those of us watching on the huge screens in the living room! haha

    ups767300ups767300Ай мурун
    • I'm pretty sure their cameras can shoot 4k, but that would make the footage 2x the size that it already is and increase editing and upload times.

      AnthonyAnthonyАй мурун
    • That would depend on the camera. The camera would have to capture in 4K. Higher resolutions also puts a strain on the editing software and computer and can slow down processing.

  • As an Entomologist, it hurt me when the cast member called a vinegaroon an insect. While they are in the same phylum as insects (Arthropoda), they are in a separate class (Arachnida) so they are veeeeeeeeery distant relatives and actually more closely related to spiders and crabs. Thanks for coming to my TEDTalk. lol

  • Often extinct animals and plants that still have living specimen means either extinct in the wild or genetically extinct. Genetic extinction means there aren’t enough specimen to continue the species or continue the species in a viable way (often when the genes aren’t diverse enough they are at risk of being wiped out by a single disease and at a certain bottleneck their extinction in the face of a disease is statistically inevitable 🙁) This comment was a bummer but the upside is that it’s gene cataloguing and genetic technology means that we could potentially synthesis genetic diversity and save those species in the future

  • I mean I don't know that I'd call the wilderness explorer thing "free" since you pay an arm and a leg to get into Animal Kingdom anyway and it's just a brochure booklet. To me, thats kind of like saying going on the rides in Animal Kingdom is a cool free thing to do too LOL. If you got a little prize at the end after becoming a Fish, Minnow, or Tadpole and collecting a certain number of badges then yea I'd say it's a cool free thing to do but I don't think they give you prizes for that. Still seems like a cute idea for little kids though. Especially if you have to keep them entertained between rides!

  • Thank you for the wonderful vlogs each and every time. I have tried to reach out to you on email but I don’t think my messages are coming through. I live in the UK, we normally stay at Old Key West and can’t wait to again but like many others all over the globe we as a family are currently looking at alternative off property resorts for our 2022 holiday, Disney currently have little to no perks eg no Magical Express no fast-pass no dining plan etc etc, ☹️your vlogs consistently have great content but as you said it is still Spring break and there isn’t much happening in the parks, I also appreciate that you are not a travel channel however , would you consider the possibility of checking out some of the gated resorts that are close to the parks, eg Emerald Island, Reunion resort etc to show us how they are being managed during the pandemic, not a staycation as I appreciate this would be costly but showing the communal pool areas tiki bars would be great to see. Thank you so much and stay safe. 😊
