Disney Dream Girls 181 - Caring for Giants Review

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls podcast for show number 181 for Sunday 15th October 2017. If you wish to listen to the podcast, whilst reading this blog, all you have to do is click on the audio player below. Alternatively, our podcast can be found in most places that host podcasts such as iTunes (click here to subscribe) and Stitcher Radio.
Coming up on todays podcast, we are joined by Thomas Allison and together we talk about the Caring for Giants tour that we took together at Disney Animal Kingdom. We review our experience, share our thoughts plus some in park audio from the tour.
The tour lasts just about an hour and costs $30. All of the tour price goes directly towards funding projects based on elephant conservation. The tour can be booked by calling 407 939 7529 and it runs most days with tours departing from 9.30am up to 1pm. 
First port of call was to get our name tags and sign the waiver! This basically takes the liability away from Disney just in case something bad were to happen. 

We were then escorted by our guide, Kendal, to backstage where we travelled to the viewing area by a minibus. 

On arrival, we were introduced to Dan and he walked us up to the viewing away up a ramp. The area is on the backside of the elephant area and we could see in the distance the safari trucks passing by. Initially, we were given time to view the elephants but Dan was on hand to talk about the elephants. 

Then we were introduced to Kathleen, a cultural representative from Botswana. She spoke for around 15 minutes about her home as well as the projects that being being done by researchers there as well as in the Animal Kingdom.  I recorded the full tour and the spoken elements have been shared on our Patreon page (for our $5 a month and above supporters) whilst the element with Kathleen is on this podcast.
