Animal Kingdom!

On Saturday we were ready to go to Animal Kingdom! We grabbed a quick breakfast at Creature Comforts at the park and then went on our first safari to see some amazing animals. We went to Rafiki's Planet Watch where the boys got to meet Doc McStuffins! We watched the Festival of the Lion King which was an absolutely amazing show. Then we discovered a really cool roller coaster called Expedition Everest. Ben took some convincing, but we rode it twice in a row. After that, we saw the show It's Tough to be a Bug! and the boys loved watching with their 3d glasses!

Soon after, the clouds let loose and we were drenched with rain! We took cover for a little while and then the boys got to meet Pocahontas! They also got to see Mickey and Minnie at the Adventurers Outpost. Then we did more rides like Finding Nemo, Primeval Whirl, and Dinosaur.

We had dinner at the Tusker House in Africa where Conner and Ben got to have dinner with Donald Duck, Daisy, Mickey, and Goofy. After dinner we watched the River of Lights show and the Tree of Life lighting!

We had another fantastic day and didn't get home until 10:30! The best part was as we were walking to the bus to get back to our resort, Conner looked up at me and asked, "Is the ground moving by itself?" He was so tired, he wasn't even sure if he was walking!
