Disney World Vacation Part 4

Animal Kingdom!
This park is beautiful! Its kind of like visiting a zoo but with lots of great attractions! But the best part of this park were the shows. We watched a stage production of Finding Nemo that was AMAZING and another, Festival of the Lion King, that had sky dancers, stilt walkers, and fire jugglers. The girls were even picked to dance on stage!!
The big ride here is Expedition Everest. Aubrey was too short to ride it so I went by myself. It was so much fun and at one point goes backwards in the dark!! Aubrey was tall enough to ride Kali River Rapids, and rode once with Rolland and didn't get wet at all, and once with me where we both got soaked!! Rebekah had fun spraying the riders from the bridge above. There was a button that activated a spray that got all the people so wet. She thought that was hilarious!
The Safari was awesome. And we were so close to the animals. The only one that was hard to see was the lion because he was sleeping up on his rock!
This park closed at 5:00pm (which was nice to be forced to have an early day!) but that was still plenty of time to see everything! We loved the rides and learning about the animals. If you want a relaxing place to take kids Animal Kingdom is definitely it! Enjoy the rest of the pictures!
