We decided to tackle Animal Kingdom on our second day. Each park had several parking lots, and we'd have to remember where we parked! On this day it was in Peacock. I will always be able to hear Amelia shouting, "Don't forget that we're in peacop," as we waited for the tram.
The kids (and Andy) would get so aggravated with me when they were ready to run somewhere and I'd stop them for a picture, but seriously...didn't they know I would be like that? Besides, one day they'll be glad I took all of these pictures.
The first ride at Animal Kingdom was the river rapids. It was pretty certain that you'd get wet...just how wet depended on who was sitting at the worst spot when it hit the big drop-off. This particular time that would be Amelia and me. She was NOT happy. In fact, she made a point of telling everyone, "I'm so angry!" We're going home with a Mickey Mouse towel because she had to have one after that ride!
Next up was conquering Mt. Everest. Amelia wasn't tall enough for that ride, so she and I waited it out.
Animal Kingdom wasn't as big as Magic Kingdom, and there weren't nearly as many rides. Amelia was all about some rides though so we went to Dinoland where she and I were able to ride something. Then she transformed into a princess. She became Rapunzel!
We weren't very impressed with the petting zoo. What was there, but lots of.....goats!!! Some kids were amazed, but all we could think about was Robin! Ah...wondering if he's missing us :-)
This is the Tree of Life! Don't ask me why Amelia is doing that. She just said she was acting like a zombie.
The kids wanted to have their caricature drawn. Yes, kids...plural. Can you believe Silas wanted to do this?
Our last ride was one we had a fast pass for...Dinosoar! We used our fast pass. Then there wasn't very long of a wait, so Andy and the two big kids rode it again.
The Rainforest Cafe was at the entrance of the park, so we decided to eat there before going back to the hotel. There's a desert there that when they deliver it, the waiters yell, "Volcano!!!" Andy started shouting "Tsunami." Once when Andy didn't yell anything, Amelia said, "Daddy, aren't you gonna yell salami?!" We laughed and laughed...and laughed!!
