Even with the addition of the Asia section of the park, you can still get out of Animal Kingdom in a few hours. Since our group wasn't into any of the shows, we stuck to rides and walkthroughs.
The new Kali River Rapids was pretty good, though a little short (kind of like the Rock'n Rollercoaster). The Maharahjah Jungle Trek was neat too -- those bats are huge!
Here's the park entrance, complete with holiday decorations.
A closeup of a giraffe that we saw on Kilamanjaro Safaris. This ride definitely impressed my fellow travelers.

Here's a slightly better picture of the same one.
Here's a pretty funny looking bus in the Asia section of the park.
You can get super close to tigers at the Maharajah Jungle Trek. That is some thick glass, too!
This gorilla is pondering the meaning of life, at the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail (near the exit of the safari).
The traditional Tree of Life photo. It's just as amazing to look at as the first time I was there.
A close-up of the trunk. How many animals can you see?
