Doing Disney – Day 3

Posted September 10th, 2008 under Life, Travel by MicheleP.

We decided to go to Animal Kingdom today. We started out with Donald’s Safari Breakfast at the Tusker House. Although it was no fun to have to set an alarm to get there on time, we enjoyed being able to go into the park an hour before it even opened.

By now, the girls were starting to get the hang of this character greeting business and were very excited about meeting more characters. Every time they saw one of the characters in the restaurant they would scream out “GOOFY!”, “DONALD!”, “DAISY!” Of course, every other kid was doing the same thing so you can imagine the chaos inside this place.

After breakfast we headed out and ran into – literally – King Louie and Baloo. Baloo scooped up Clara and I worried we would need to bring in a crisis team to help her recover – but as you can see, CLARA (who is in green) was perfectly happy…it was Libby who was upset by it all. Go figure.

We headed to the Safari ride next and enjoyed seeing quite a few animals there. Of course, I have no proof of these animals or anything else we saw that day because my camera battery died just after the Baloo incident so the rest of the day was spent sans camera :( .

We saw the Lion King show and Finding Nemo. Both were fantastic. The girls were glued to their seats during the Lion King and were very excited to be selected to participate in the finale dance with the actors. However, by the time we got to Nemo it was late in the afternoon and they used this show as their nap for the day.

After naps we rode one of those Rafting Rapid rides – I wasn’t sure the girls would like it but they LOVED it – especially when they got wet and told all the people standing in line as we walked out…”You’re gonna get wet!”. We also enjoyed Bug’s Life and even though we were warned that it might be a bit scary, the girls loved it.

We ended the day at Animal Kingdom by watching the parade and then headed back to our hotel for dinner there and an “early” bedtime at 9:00. It was the first night we were in bed before 11 – and probably the last one too.

    It looks like the girls are having so much fun! They are just too cute.
    We’re going to take our kiddos to Disney World next February and we just can’t wait. We’re going to tell them at Christmas. It’s going to be so fun to see how they react!
    Keep having fun…dream do come true!
