Opening this weekend, is Disneynature newest big screen adventure “Bears,” an epic story of breathtaking scale showcasing a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons.

To learn more about this latest Disneynature film, I attended a roundtable with Jane Goodall, Disneynature's Ambassador and Directors Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey.
During the roundtable the trio answered many questions related to the movie. They also shared behind the scene stories about filming in Alaskan and with the bears.
It was amazing to hear them speak of working with the bears in their natural settings. They were careful to respect the bears space and lifestyle. Many people are afraid of bears but within their natural habit uninterrupted by humans, bears pose minimal treat.
The directors shared that they tried to stay true to the bears story and give a real experience of their lives. From moments of joy to moments of fear, it's the real bear experience.Disneynature BEARS Supports America’s national parks
SEE “BEARS,” PROTECT OUR NATIONAL PARKS invites movie goers to see the film during opening week (April 18-24, 2014) and Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s national park system. Movie Synopsis
Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure “Bears” is set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life. The journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold.
The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food—ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf.
“Bears” captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses—Alaska!

As soon as we got to the zoo, we joined the line to enter the Dinosaur Safari. Be warned that it's a popular exhibit so be prepared to wait. But the Dinosaur Safari line moves quickly since they have guided wagons arriving every 15 mins. While waiting you and your family can read about the Dinosaurs you'll see.
Once on the wagons your tour guide (a real person) will explain the rules to you and then take you into the world of the Dinosaur! During the ride you learn about different types of Dinosaurs, how they lived and what they eat. Be prepared to SEE the Dinosaur as they move out of cover from trees and around the corners of the forest.
Once you make it safely out the dino forest, you can visit the field site to dig up fossils, visit the fossil museum and make the interactive robot dinosaur move. This area was great for the kids.
Before leaving the field site, make sure to visit the photo station to pose with a dino. My son LOVED this. He's clearly ready for any dino adventure.
We ended our dino adventure in the hand on craft area. There we put together dino shapes and did some dino themed drawing, which my son was able to hang up for all to see. It was a great end to the day.
