We woke up bright and early so that we could get ready to head to Animal Kingdom. We loaded up the stroller and headed to our bus stop.
We had a 10 to 15 minute bus ride from our resort to Animal Kingdom.
Our first stop was the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Everything we had read and heard from people they say go to this ride first because most animals are out early in the morning.
Danny and Kate enjoying the ride.
Abigail had so much fun seeing all the animals.
Just a few of the animals…
Next we decided to go ride Kali River Rapids. Abigail HATES to get wet so we told her she would get wet but just a little. Let’s just say she was mad at us because we all got soaked and she was crying the last half of the ride.

After lunch we enjoyed the Flights of Wonder show.
Lots of amazing birds!
We ended the day by heading to DinoLand USA
Danny and Abigail on Tricera Top Spin.

Some other attractions and show we did…
It’s Tough to be a Bug, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, and The Boneyard
After a busy day at Animal Kingdom we headed back to our resort for a swim and dinner.
We decided to stay at the resort and have dinner.

Abigail and her dessert.
To end our first full day at Disney World we decided to watch a movie on the beach.
We were also able to watch a lighted boat parade (set to music) and also we had the perfect spot to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. The best part the resort is that it plays the same music you hear at the park through out the resort’s sound system so you get the same experience.
Dancing to the music.
Ready for the movie.
What a great day!
Just a few tips…
**We chose to stay in a resort near the Magic Kingdom – the best decision. YES you will spend more but it is worth every penny to be close to the Magic Kingdom. It makes it easy to go back and forth from the Resort to the Park.
**If you don’t get the Park Hopper (which we didn’t have) make sure when you schedule your meals in a park make sure that is your park that you plan to attend that day.
Next up back to Magic Kingdom (another day full of pictures)
