Animal Kingdom

Disney Animal Kingdom was fantastic.  We started our day with a safari.  We saw a ton of animals and even Carter enjoyed the ride.  We went to the Lion King show next and it was the best show in Disney.  The kids were chosen to participate and lead our seating section in elephant noises.  Finding Nemo was fantastic too.  It was only 40 minutes, which is perfect for kids to watch.  Dinoland was Carter's favorite.  He loved digging for dinosaur bones.  He did not enjoy the Dinosaur ride which we forced him on.  We really had no idea that it was going to be so scary.  You can tell by the photo how scared everyone really was when a T-Rex tried to eat us.  Expedition Everest was a fantastic roller coaster.  Gavin was too scared to ride it and was sad about it the whole day.  No amount of coaxing could get him on.  Renée, on the other hand, will ride anything.  We went to a Birds of Flight show and saw all kinds of birds.  We explored the shops of Asia and tried on more hats that we did not buy.  We ate a wonderful dinner at Yak & Yeti, probably my favorite in Disney.  Most of the animal experience and shows end by 5, so we spent the evening riding rides and letting Carter dig for more bones.


Sam took this of me doing what I spent most of the safari doing.

I love how beautiful giraffes are.

There was a whole herd of elephants.
