Animal Kingdom is especially majestic when the afternoon summer rain has cleared out many of the park’s lesser traveled walking paths and sitting areas. However, even the well traversed bridge between the Oasis and Discovery Island can serve as a tranquil place to pause and center one’s self amidst the excited energy of guests coming and going. Today you’ve done just that: taken a moment to pause, protected by your trusty umbrella which, in serving as a shield from the rain, also helps to create a cloak-like effect. You’ve seemingly become one with the space. How is it, you wonder, that no one else seems to notice the serenity around them. You take a deep breath and smile, realizing that you have the good fortune of being able to come back to this place whenever you’d like.
This moment was recorded in 3D 180 degree video and is best enjoyed with a virtual reality headset. However, it can also be enjoyed from your computer browser or phone, using your finger to pan or moving your physical position for an augmented reality effect. Use headphones to more fully immerse yourself in 3D sound.
