Questions answered at Animal Kingdom

The Animal Kingdom provides answers.

Cindy, Cindy, it is quite windy, Where do pineapples grow?

There was a question many in my family had, it was a silly question, almost posed as a bet of sorts.
Here is the question... Where do pineapples grow?
Do you know the answer?
Let me tell you how this question originated.
Before I was married my in laws took us on many trips to Mexico to shop and go fishing in South Texas. We lived in South Central Texas at the time and we drove through "the Valley" in South Texas to get to Progresso, Mex.
The Valley produces much of the Grapefruit in the US we used to see Valley Grown Grapefruit in Montana when we lived there.
The valley also has many fields of things popping out of the ground looking like the tops of pineapples.
What are these things?
So the argument was that Pineapples grow out of the ground, Or Do they grow from trees?
Finally a few years after this odd banter started we found the answer right before our eyes, where else but in The Animal Kingdom Park.

It Does appear to be a bush, Who was right? ground or tree?
I think we all won because we were at Disney World!

The fields in the Valley? they were full of many rows of AloeVera plants, not pineapples.

What questions do you have about life that may be answered at Walt Disney World?
