Felt like I was filming for a Disney Documentary in the 60's or 70's...
We were at Animal Kingdom Lodge to see the animals on the savanna and have a bite there at The Mara and as we were watching the animals we noticed movement beneath us. Barely caught my eye. At first we didn't think too much of it and thought they were awesome to watch and that maybe they were carpenter ants until we noticed their colors. At the time, we didn't think they could be Fire Ants until we got home and looked them up. Sure enough the pictures of Fire Ants were right on target and that is what they were. People were sitting on the ledge these things were on and there were a good amount of them and on top of rocks which could easily function as a nest. Got right on the phone with Disney and informed them so they could deal with it which they assured me they would and I am sure they did. In the meantime, I got some very cool video and pics of it, got to talk to some nice Disney vacationers and it feels like National Geographic or like one of Walt's nature documentaries from the 60's and 70's.

Great Disney adventures! We lost everything and had to start over again, but we decided to do it with magic and style here in the most magical place on earth. We were scared to death but by letting go, managed to make Pixie Dust our lives instead. You can see more about our story at the bottom of the page here...
