I read about a game that the children can play as you walk around Animal Kingdom. You get a book, and search for bugs and at various stations you get a stamp. Can you tell me what this game is called and where we go in DAK to start playing?

Thanks for writing us, Angel!
There are two different "games" that you might be thinking about...
This "game" is Animal Kingdom's "Kids' Discovery Club." This is a great (FREE!) activity to help connect your kids to some educational and fun activity stations throughout the Animal Kingdom park. In total there are 6 activity stations, all of which are indicated on the park map with a "K" symbol. Once you go to any of these stations and complete the activity, you and/or your kids will be given an activity passport booklet and their first stamp. They can then proceed to visit all of the other stations and collect a total of 6 stamps while they learn a little on the way (shhhh, you don't have to tell them this part!).
This "game" is the Animal Kingdom "Safari Journal", which is based on a Safari Journal that you can purchase for about $11 (prices subject to change). This journal is filled with pictures and information and helps guide your kids throughout the park. It also has stickers for them to apply in their book as they find specific animals and experiences in the park. This booklet is sold at many of the gift shops throughout the park, including the one at the entrance, in case you want to buy it at the beginning of your day.
Hopefully one of these "games" is the one you had in mind. Or, perhaps, now you have two ways to fill your day with fun! Either way, I hope you and your kids have a great visit to my favorite park at Walt Disney World!!
