Our first Disney park day was at Animal Kingdom. We chose it because the weather was supposed to be good…and we were really hoping to get to see some animals! We sure did!
First we had to make sure everyone had sunscreen on!
Then we hit the road to Disney! Zachary was so excited when he saw the gate to the property!
Then it was on the tram – and we made sure Zach had his ID badge holder on!
Then it was time for a quick family photo out front…and into the park we went!
The first ride we went on was the Kilimanjaro Safari. We had a great time seeing all of the different types of animals (and some wild humans) on the tour!
Then it was through the park…
to our first character meet up! We found Baloo and King Louie from The Jungle Book (two of Laura’s favorites) and got some photos taken with them.
The big kids wanted to ride Everest – Animal Kingdom’s roller coaster – so we split up and let them ride while we waited. Liam and Sean played and fed the birds around us.
We headed to Dinoland USA for some kiddie rides for Sean…and lunch!
Then we split up again and took Zachary to see the Jammin’ Jungle Parade! We got him a really good spot to see the characters and several stopped to give him attention! We got to spend some time with our cousin, Rebekah, and her baby boy, Connor, too. Love that we get to share this magical place with family!
Then…it was time to call it a day and head on back home.
Tony, Donny, and I headed to Downtown Disney to do a little shopping while Amanda and Jason babysat Zach for us.
