Animal Kingdom: Day 4 of Disney Vacation

Our fourth day of Disney vacation brought us to the Animal Kingdom. I have heard some people say that they were not impressed with this place. Our family enjoyed our visit here. It was so neat to see all the different animals that they house at the park. After the show that Minnie and Mickey Mouse put on for you before entering the park, we made our way for the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Before we made it there we stopped to watch the 3D showing of "It's Tough to be a Bug!". Pretty cute show. Then we were back on track for the Kilimanjaro Safaris. We boarded a rugged open-sided safari vehicle for our trek to see some wild animals, (no I'm not talking about the kids here. Ha Ha.). Here are just a few of the animals we saw on our ride.

After seeing lots of animals, it was time to hit the rides. The ride we all agreed that we liked the best was Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. This was one of the best roller coasters that I have ever been on. I just love that the four of us are roller coaster riders. Chuck and Tyler wanted to go on the Kali River Rapids, now let me just insert here that I do not like rides that I am going to get wet on. I don't enjoy walking around in wet clothes, and I'm not going to wear a swimsuit into a park like that. So while the guys went to brave the rapids, Kaelyn and I went to find a good viewing spot of Mickey's Jammin Jungle Expeditions parade. The guys met up with us at the parade site just before the parade started.

After the parade it was time to ride the roller coaster one last time before we left the Animal Kingdom.

  3. I LOVE animal kingdom! Just don't go when it's HOT, because it's built "down" inside a "hole"--NO breeze AT ALL. !!!!!!! I'm so glad you liked it! Our favorite is Kilimenjaro Safari toO!
