Timon and Pumbaa are Wild About Safety

Have you ever picked up a counter service meal in Animal Kingdom and found a trading card on your tray? I was puzzled by this during my last trip and admittedly, the card went into the trash with the rest of my garbage. However later in the day I discovered just what that card was and how much fun it is being a kid again at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

All right, I know that this is WDW For Grownups, but who doesn't enjoy playing the games that Disney whips up to keep little kids busy? Often they're fun, creative, and give you something to do when you're having some downtime like at lunch, or while standing in queues. Disney knows better than anyone else that "entertaining information is easy to remember". So next time you arrive at Animal Kingdom, stop in at guest services and get your copy of Timon and Pumbaa's Safety Challenge!

Paws Behind the LineTimon and Pumbaa lead you on a journey through theme park safety, that's not only fun, but teaches you how to be a well-mannered tourist respectful to the parks and guests around you. "By demonstrating the potential consequences of unsafe behavior, Timon and Pumbaa show Guests how to stay safe and enjoy their visit." You can fill out word puzzles, figure out riddles, and collect trading cards from all around Disney's Animal Kingdom Park.

Cards include themes such as:

  • "Watching Over Your Herd"
  • "Hold Onto Your Gear"
  • "No Stampeading!"
  • "Stay on your Feet, It's Not a Seat", and
  • "Be Aware, It's a Jungle Out There", just to name a few.

Hold On!For cool Parents and Grand Parents Timon and Pumbaa has even created a website to view at home that will prepare them for what to expect on their next Disney vacation. They not only cover what to know about heading out into the tropical sun, but help you familiarize yourself with the symbols common on Disney Parks maps.

I think that all guests should take into consideration Timon and Pumbaa's safety course during their stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. Sometimes even the elders of the pack forget these problem-free philosophies. What about you? Do you follow the rules of the Jungle when traveling? Leave a comment and let me know!

I've always loved reading their safety tips on the busses! I didn't realize you could get an interactive park activity too. Thanks for the tip!

You can! We sort of stumbled upon it by happy accident.
