Here’s a mousepad from “Countdown to Extinction” in Animal Kingdom. This is before the ride was renamed “Dinosaur.” The ride really didn’t change much during the renaming of the attraction. It would have been nice if they would have kept the original name and not tried to tie it in to a forgettable movie, but that’s just my opinion.
This is the Guide Book from April 22, 1998 – Opening Day. My wife and I went to Animal Kingdom after we both got off of work for the day. It was crowded, but we managed to pick up this guide and one of the opening day posters. We had been to Animal Kingdom for preview days, but we wanted to be there on the official opening day.
My wife and I loved going to the preview days for Animal Kingdom, mainly because it wasn’t too crowded and we experienced all of the attractions.
