As we mentioned in November, we made what might be our last T.rex Road Trip of the year to Orlando, FL to celebrate a family milestone for Mrs. TrRT. During our journey to Disney World, we spent a day in Animal Kingdom, which includes DinoLand USA, a dinosaur-themed attraction. I have spoken before about the tragedy that was the auction of the Tyrannosaurus rex we know as Sue. While the Field Museum’s successful bid in the inflated sale of that specimen was fortunate, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of corporate donors, including McDonalds and Disney. Disney was gifted with a cast of the skeleton, which is on display in DinoLand.
The cast of Sue is found on the path to the Dinosaur ride (which features a scaled up Carnotaurus in its lobby.) Its definitely worth a look while you are at the area.
