After watching the movie Disneynatures Bears on Walt Disney Studios Lot and seeing the mama bear and her 2 cubs set out on an adventure, we set off on an adventure of our own…We went to the LA Zoo.

Once we got there, we were given a special tour of the zoo that thankfully involved us riding in carts to get us from place to place.

Of course we made time for a Tram Selfie

while at the LA Zoo, I also had a buddy with me, Amber (she is one of the cubs from the movie) and apparently she likes taking pics just like I do.

One of our first stops was at the California Condor Recovery Center where I was compelled to dress up as one…

Thanks for the pic Andrew

I also decided to get into a Condor egg (you know you would have to)

and after all that excitement, I was able to see an actual condor, Dolly (but I kept my distance…luckily I wasn’t wearing the wings or if may have tried to cuddle with me)

Think Amber is cute? If you decide to purchase one, the Disney Store will contribute $1 to the NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION for every BEARS plush purchased between now and 5/11/14.

Don’t forget that Disneynatures Bears comes out in theaters this Friday 4/18.

I visited the LA Zoo as part of my trip with Disney. All opinions are my own.
