Today we went to Animal Kingdom and had a really fab day out. It was another really hot and gorgeous day so being outside but in a shady place was great. The first thing we did was head to the Everest rollarcoaster so that Dad and Jack could tick that off their lists of things to do. We then headed to the Safari ride, which was great fun. I thought it might be dull as you can see animals at any zoo but it was a really fun experience and I would put it on the must do list if you are ever in Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom also has a few 'trails' that you can follow round to lead you to see other animals like the gorillas.
We then went to see The Festival of the Lion King which was my favourite part of the day. The Lion King is my favourite Disney film and the music is fantastic. It always makes me so happy and emotional! The show was a 20 min montage of songs and bits of the story, I reallllllllllllllllllly loved it and would have watched it all day if I could have. After the show we were hungry, so we headed to the 'Asia' part of Animal Kingdom to get some lunch. I love American food but after a week of chips it was nice to have a different sort of meal. I had crispy honey chicken with rice and it was seriously tasty. We then headed to the Dinosaur ride, I was a bit dubious about this one but it was actually good fun and not scary at all. Dad and Jack headed to another rollarcoaster whilst me and Amber met Goofy and Pluto!
It was then time for the river rapids, it was the perfect time of day to go on them as it was so hot we dried out really quickly. The rapids were fun but the ride was really quick, you do get wet but nowhere near as soaked as the Universal Studios rapids. My Dad loves A Bugs Life so we watched the 4D film, which was kind of fun but not so much if, like me and Amber, you do not like bugs! Our last stop of Animal Kingdom was the train to meet Rafiki from the Lion King, before heading back to our house for a couple of hours to relax.
We headed to Downtown Disney for a quick dinner and spent the rest of the time browsing the shops and the rest of the entertainment on offer. We only have two more full days left before coming home Friday evening! :(
