Animal Kingdom day 3

Happy New Year!

On with the lowdown on the Disney trip. Better late than never, right?

On day 3 we ended up going to Animal Kingdom. We got a late start and thought we would not find as much to do at Animal Kingdom. We were wrong about that! This is the biggest park at Disney and has TONS of fun stuff for everyone.

The first thing we did was meet Belu the Bear from Jungle Book. That was fun. We sang Bare Necessities and Belu did a little was funny. In general, we did not meet a lot of characters because there were such long lines to get to them and the kids were just not that interested.
We spent a lot of time in the dinosaur section...there was a place to dig in the sand for dinosaur bones which the kids loved. Colin found a spoon in the sand area and filled every stray shoe he could find with sand :) Then we went to the dinosaur carnival area where there were games and rides. We rode a roller coaster called "Primevil Spin" which was fun and the girls got their faces painted.

We missed the big safari attraction because we got there late, with the early sunset, they stop those rides early. Some of our group was brave enough to go on the big roller coaster "Expidition Everest". Bill, Parker and Chip went on it 5 times! I could only handle once. With my eyes closed :)

The big tree of life there is really spectacular with the carvings of animals. We really did not get to touch the surface of this park, I would love to go back and spend lots of time there. I posted more pictures from Animal Kingdom on my Flickr page (link on the right). Day 4 is our full day at Magic Kingdom so stay tuned!
