Animal Kingdom - March 10, 2009

Because Animal Kingdom is so fabulous, we decided to get there early, so I woke up early to get my run done. We arrived at the park around 10am and Katie was surprised at the number of people who were there. We headed to Africa to get fast passes for the safari and then headed over to get fast passes for Everest, except you can't get fast passes for both at the same time. We stopped and got pictures of Everest and with King Louie and Baloo. I think that might be my favorite character picture. The safari was great and we walked through the zoo part and got to see the hippo pool.

After Africa, we headed to Asia and got fast passes to Everest. We walked through the zoo and smelled the most fabulous egg rolls ever. We grabbed lunch and the egg rolls that smelled so great were by far the best egg rolls I've ever eaten in my life. We used the single rider line and rode Everest 3 times and then used our fast pass to ride in the front car. I love that ride!

After Everest, we headed over to the Dinosaur ride which was kinda scary and the time travel ride which was lots of fun. We made our way over for more character pictures. We took pictures with Lilo and Stitch (Stitch licked me), Pocahontas (what is it with the princesses wanting to pose?), and I got to dance with Goofy, which was way fun. We were headed back to Asia, but got caught up in the parade, which had some very very cool floats! We rode Everest one more time and then grabbed some ice cream and headed to the outlets for some shopping before heading back to the condo for a relaxing evening.
