Disney Day 2 Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom
Monday March 30, 2009

Our first stop once we arrived in Animal Kingdom was to Expedition Everest for 6 fast passes, that way Tyler, Abigail and Jonathan could ride 2 times. They had to wait several hours till it was their turn. We then got into line for the Kali River Rapids, the wait was only 15 minutes so we decided to go for it. It said some people may get wet, some people may get soaked.... Well me (Barb) and Jonathan got soaked and everyone else got wet. We spent the next 45 minutes or so in the bathroom wringing out and drying our clothes so they were not dripping.... It was a good thing it was warm! We then got in line for the Kilimanjaro Safari. The line was not too bad about an hour, but probably the slowest it would be all day and the fast passes were sold out early, so we decided to wait. Here are some shots from the Safari.

Here is a some pictures of the kids on the Pangani Forest Exploration trail.

Hannah being eaten by something!

Jonathan following her lead!

Hannah, Jonathan and Sarah playing the musical instruments with the African Warrior. They loved this and Sarah asked all day if we could go back so she could play them again.

Here are all the kids after Tyler, Abigail and Jonathan rode the Expedition Everest. We had to go back to this spot and the ride later in the day when Abigail realized she had lost her phone. Thankfully they found it on the seat of the ride after she got out and gave it to the ride attendants... she has only had it 3 months...!

After leaving this ride we walked over to Dinoland USA and rode the Primeval Whirl all together. It was a lot of fun but I am not a roller coaster person! We all rode it once then Tyler, Hannah, Jonathan and Sarah rode it again while Abigail and I went looking for her phone. Afterwards we went on Dinosaur. The wait was only 30 minutes, so very short. It was a great ride, my favorite all day besides the Safari!
We then walked over towards It's Tough to be a Bug. We took some pictures of the kids while waiting in line and once inside while waiting for the show to start. Sarah really did not like this show. She was afraid through most of it and kept taking the 3D glasses off.
She was ruined for most all of the shows after this... she was scared of them!

Waiting for the show to start.

Here is a shot of the kids just outside of the Tree of Life.
The last time we were in Disney we took a picture at the same place so it was neat to compare the two pictures, the last time we were in Disney was in 2004.

Another shot in front of the "Tree".

It was a fun day for all.
We left Animal Kingdom when they closed and went to Epcot to check it out. We rode Spaceship Earth, and walked around a little we ended the evening by riding Soarin. It was an awesome ride. I was looking forward to coming back to Epcot on Wednesday and going on it with my parents. My Dad would love it!
We got back to the resort around 10:30 or so.
The kids were passed out after taking showers.
A great day and night!
Till next time,
