We are back at Animal Kingdom today! Animal Kingdom and we’re just currently queuing up to have our photo taken and then we have got our fast passes booked for flight of passage which I’m really really excited about (music) are you alright back there db I’m good! I’ve changed my smart drive We’re nearly there but this bits downhill so, it’s cruising all the way And it’s, (I’ve got the easy bit) yeah. And it’s all nice and air conditioned Daisy Belle is so, so, so excited! Thank you, in we go *those with a fear of heights or motion sickness should bypass this experience* oh no, prone to… do I close the door? We’re all in here That’s cool That’s cool *prepare pressure doors, systems ready* Pressure doors Oooh this is exciting *Ok Dr Stevens they’re ready* *uh, let’s start the de-con, initiating GMR de-con* *stand still over your number, you’re not going to feel a thing* Daisy, don’t you worry about it hunny 1,2,3 these are our avatars These are our pods, jump on! DB (go on number 3) I will! Got to stay at the things, right. That’s the end of filming. screaming That was something else wasn’t it?! That was magical! That was incredible like I could cry, incredible That was just out of this world That was so fantastic that Like I never cry! (DB) Ohh my god, so good! You never cry?
The sight, you can smell it Yeah!
So we just finished up on flight of passage and, how many times have we ridden it now was that the fourth time? Fourth time I think. Fourth time And everytime you ride it you see something different, you experience something different And because we were sat in a different area um of the screen I definitely saw different things and I also got a lot more wet and spray We’re now going to the na’vi river Which is gonna be really exciting Yeah we’re still in pandora Yeah I think, I’m not entirely sure but I think this is like a boat ride and it’s all inside and it’s all colourful and stuff like you’re in avatar And hopefully we’re gonna get soaked! *American accent* I kinda don’t wanna get soaked because like my bum is so (why are you talking like that) I don’t know I can’t stop now I’m sorry As some of you know our transferring footage was lost due to a dodgy gopro but these are the boats that you ride in for the na’vi river And it’s kind of a similar situation to splash mountain They are quite low and they are quite difficult to get into maybe not quite so squishy and hard as splash mountain Um but they are not easy and they are low, as I said You can actually request to have a transfer block Which is very similar to the ones pictured here on the rock’n’rollercoaster at Hollywood Studios Um, I found it a little bit tricky but it wasn’t too bad, I did have Shaun to help me but it was a great ride. We actually only rode it once, because we just enjoyed flight of passage so much more so flight of passage won over this one. But it is a nice, easy slow kind of ride, if you can get into it! And can I just say one thing, this movie is about a guy who is in a wheelchair So I’m a little bit disappointed here that Disney didn’t think a bit more about the transferring issues Because there are some rides like ‘It’s a small world’ where you can actually ride the ride in your wheelchair So, I’m a bit disappointed that they didn’t have this option on this ride, that I know of. Oh look at that!
It just went upside down Expedition everest!
That’s our next ride, no it doesn’t go upside down. Well it just did *music and chatter* So wheelchair users who need to transfer sit at the back of this ride because on the side they have a door that completely comes away so that you can do a side transfer relatively easy I didn’t find this one to be too bad but the ride, ooooh my goddd Oh, oh OH! Where that arrow is on the bottom right that’s where the door opens for you to do a transfer There he is! Look, there he is! Ah we’re going forward now This is it! There he is Why don’t you take a screenshot and share this video if you’re enjoying it! That was, that was quite a ride! That was something else! What did you think of that one? I feel a bit ill actually! Not gonna lie Look, no literally look
You were a trooper! Maybe not so close to breakfast
No! Khali river rapids It’s the Khali river rapids Khali river rapids yeahhh So this is where you dock for the Khali river rapids This is actually a separate docking station for the disabled/wheelchair users where they can completely slow it down Now Micahel Jackson has said to dock here and so has Bindi Irwin so you’re treated a little bit like a celebrity However there are three steps I think you can see there to get down into your chair So Shaun actually carried me down so this is actually very, very hard Um , it’s good fun, it’s not very long And you do get absolutely drenched Which is quite nice in the, 100 degree heat But because I’m sat down the whole time my bum was wet for the whole day You know if you’re walking around you dry within seconds so yeah, was a little bit uncomfortable It’s definitely something to bear in mind because it was quite uncomfortable. Yeah! How good was that? Another one, here we go! That was quick wasn’t it That was great that big drop was great That was nice It was nice, it’s unusal. Something different wasn’t it, it was nice. We’re going to get on the safari now Doing the safari is such a nice thing to do to kind of chill out for a few minutes And just sit back and just watch some amazing wildlife from Africa It’s not air conditioned on the little cars that you go on but it’s just nice to get away from all the crowds. Now transfering is not that easy As you can see there’s quite a big step to jump up onto the cars And Shaun did have to help me however if you can’t transfer at all you can stay in your wheelchair One thing I will say is that it is very, very bumpy and rickety so if you don’t have much control of your upper body and your core then you may find yourself kind of being whooshed around like you’re in a washing machine That gorgeous little girl that you can see in the back there is Amy who I met while we were on safari and she was so so lovely She has Spina Bifida and we got chatting and Amy, I really hope you’re doing well and it was so lovely to meet you. ‘Vilderbeast’ Got a funny story for ya, when I went on a safari in South Africa, we were chased by a herd of Giraffes. Really?
Yeah really, we literally had to like (run) well, drive fast away Yeah they were galloping towards us So coool Ahhh that’s so cool! Woww Follow the bird! It’s gonna come at you *gasp* Ahhhh Photos now switch to photo Ah he’s got a *clears throat*
He’s got a Donald Duck hat on! This area kind of reminds me of um Brigton Pier
Yeah a little bit! What do you think of that one are you gonna give it a go? What this one?
Yeah Yeah are you getting a DAS pass for it?
Yeah yeah yeah Okay so this is on a moving platform so I’m not sure how transferring is gonna go with this one Whether they can stop it or not or whether Shaun’s gonna carry me on It’s not a moving platform it’s moving vehicles
Moving vehicles I can’t see from down here Yeah, I might have to, oh it’s a … I might just have to carry you on You might Ah they just said that they can stop it or they can slow it down but I’ve asked them to stop it I still might lift you on you think or are you gonna try and get in? I think you can get in Yeah It’s a bit of an around the corner one
Yeah Ready for the coaster it’s gonna be rocky because I’m on my phone! And we’ve got Pluto he’s come for the ride as well And Daddy Battery died! Really sorry but I think this was possibly the worst ride in Disney ever it is horrible It throws you around it’s jerky it stops, it starts It makes you feel sick and then the cast members were like ‘yayy wanna go round again’ and I was like nooo Oh my god its awful Ohh Daisy what do you think of this one?
I love it! You’re loving it?! I’m glad we did this before lunch! I didn’t like that! I don’t, I don’t reccomend this one My mouth’s gone dry, I don’t reccomend this one to anybody Daisy likes it though We are currently waiting to see the Lion King And this is not what I was expecting, have a look at this Well I wasn’t expecting this massive kind of like, auditorium It’s massive It’s massiveee So I don’t know is it gonna be puppets? It must be pupppets I can’t wait They get children from the crowd up onto stage Serious?
Especially those at the front Ahh cool, they’ve got your number! No I’ve got no idea *Muscial introduction* Hakuna Matata… What’s a motto with you?? The Lion King show was absolutely fantastic it’s kind of like a Cirque du Soleil kind of vibes With um puppets as well, it’s absolutely fantastic I’ve seen the Cirque du Soleil in the Royal Albert Hall and this was just as brilliant What I love about it is that it’s inside so it’s all air conditioned and you can kind of chill out and calm down a bit from the blaring hot sunshine outside Also what’s really great is there is reserved seating for disabled and wheelchair users Right at the front so you have a completely unrestricted view It was absolutely fantastic *Circle of life* *Cheering/clapping*
