DAY 5-APRIL 5th.
.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
No waking at 2-50am this morning for me :woohoo:,3.20am instead :laughing:.I ended up going back to sleep and got up at 6am.I woke Tony+the girls at 6-30am.We were down in the court eating our usual free brekkie,ready to catch the free suttle at 7-50am outside the hotel.We arrived at Animal Kingdom 9am..

was a little worried of the wait times,as the park had already been open an hour.Need'nt have worried too much,as we went straight to Kilimanjaro Safaris with only a 15min wait.I love this ride,Chloe remembered it from last time+Emily was amazed at all the animals so close to her-especially the Giraffe's

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1868.jpgHe was making such a racket,roaring+like a bellowing/grunting sound :confused3,i did'nt know the animatronic lions could sound so real ;).

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1869.jpg
After our thrilling+bumpy ride thru the jungle,we then made our way to look at the animals.After Tony went to get a fastpass for Expedition Everest,whilst me+the girls had some photopass pics done..

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/Image0302.jpgMe having a little snooze.

and the girls had fun with a Cast Member+a giant ball..
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1881.jpg.
Once Tony was back we made our way thru+into It's Tough To Be A Bug,i love the tree carvings-they are amazing...

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1900.jpg
We got Emily to sit on Daddy's lap,because of the bee sting-as we knew that would seriously freak her out.Emily was still a bit freaked out by the spiders though.
Next it was time for a break,so we made our way to Pizzafari,but not before poor Chloe come a cropper+stacked it over a tree stump+gashed her knee quite badly-it looked worse than what it was-thankfully.
Tony+Me shared an Adult Pepperoni Pizza,salad+Reg Coke.
Girls shared Kids Cheese Pizza,Grapes,Carrot Sticks+Sprite.
Total $16.48.
Food was quite tasty,and the salad was crisp+fresh.The theming is also great in here.

We then made our way to see Emily's true love-her Stitchy :love:..
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1911.jpg
This was unfortunatley only one of the best shots the photograpgher got-i was pretty annoyed as he was more interested in talking to the Cast Member (who came out with Lilo+Stitch) about what his wife was cooking for dinner that night than taking pictures.He missed all the shots of her running up to and cuddling him :sad1:.
Next we made our way to Camp Minnie+Mickey for a little boogie time+some Limbo with Chip+Dale,Flik,Meeko,Koda,Pocahontas..
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1901.jpg
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1903.jpg
The girls absolutley loved this :banana:.
We then made our way to see Safari Donald+Minnie..
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/Image0386.jpgIt was then that Emily developed a crush on Donald-sshh don't tell Stitch :sad2:.

Tony made his way round to ride Expedition Everest,whilst me+the girls queued for Festival Of The Lion King.Tony made it back in time+loved EE,but said there is no way i would have enjoyed it-i was thinking about trying this until i found out that it went backwards :scared1:.Tony is my guinea pig when it comes to rides.
FOTLK was brilliant as always,Chloe was singing along+my Emily was clapping+watching in awe-i actually had a tear in my eye.Then it was time for the big ending which always brings a lump to my throat+goosebumps all over me.
We also rode on Triceratop Spin-which we all enjoyed-well i did enjoy it a little bit :laughing:.
The girls done some shopping,Emily bought Stitch's hands :laughing:,Chloe bought an AK mini fan,and keyring+i bought some birthday pressies for Chloe's upcoming 8th birthday next week+some stocking filler pressies for the girls for Christmas,and then--that's when i heard it-the Parade :scared:,Mummy had forgotten the parade :scared1:,we dashed outside+tried to watch the best we could..
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1953.jpg
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1957.jpg
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1960.jpg
We then decided that the girls,especially Emily had,had enough-it was extremley hot today-86deg,but it always feels hotter in AK :confused3.So we made our way to the Taxi's and got back to the hotel aprox 4pm+$35 lighter.
We got ourselves ready for dinner at Bahama Breeze tonight-we love,love,love this place-the atmosphere,the food+the pina colada's are amazing :worship:.
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1967.jpgPoor sleepy Emily :cutie:.
http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk81/snowy-girls/PICT1971.jpgMy Ultimate Pina Colada.

Tony-Jerk Salmon,carribean rice+broccolli,1 Ultimate Pina Colada+1 Bushwacker.Warm Pineapple Upside Down Cake(a warm rich chocolate cake with a Chocolate molten center topped with caramelized pineapple, Raspberry sauce, butterscotch brandy sauce and fresh Whipped cream).

Me-Filet Mignon,Garlic Mash+Broccolli,2 Ultimate Pina Colada's+1 Bahama Mama.Chocolate Mousse(Rich chocolate mousse on a fudge brownie Island in milk chocolate sauce and vanilla bean anglaise).

Girls shared-Crispy Chicken Fingers,Fries+Broccolli,Pineapple+Grape Bowl.Coke each.Also shared a vanilla ice ream+choc sauce.
Total was $120.65 inc tax+tip.
The food was beautiful+was worth the wait,we have never had a bad meal since we have been coming here.
Once finished we made our way into Walgreens a few doors down,to stock up on some more choccy+water,then back to the hotel where Emily suddenly was very wide awake when i mentioned the swimming pool.So we all went swimming indoors as the outside one was way too busy.After the girls were bathed+in bed by 9.35pm,Me+Tony showered,ironed,drank some Mountain Dew whilst watching King Of The Hill+was in bed at 11pm.

Coming Up On DAY 6-Islands Of Adventure.Stay Tuned :thumbsup2.x.

Another great day Michelle. Love your safari pics and thanks for the 'rhino butt' pic ;)

Would you believe I've still never seen the tree carvings in real life. :confused3

I get goosebumps at the end of FOTLK too, even listening to it at home.

I want one of those Pina Coladas NOW!!!!! Must add Bahama Breeze to the list.

Andy is my guinea pig for rides too! I decided against EE after he rode it.

Hope Chloe's leg felt better soon :hug:

DW is a big fan of the Ultimate Pina Coladas too. Must be a girly thing :lmao:

Shame about your photopass photographer with Stitch - but I guess it is just hit and miss as to who you get. Fortunately most of them are on the ball and will click away from start to finish - catching the best shots and not just the posed for ones.
Another good TR though. :thumbsup2

Oh Laur's i can taste it now.Settled on the top of the drink is a shot of pure rum.Chloe was fine,but it must have really hurt her as she had tears in her eyes and it takes alot for her to cry over an inury of any kind :hug:.x.

I was thrilled with our photopass pics but just a little gutted about this one as Emily idolises Stitch+her face was so cute-she was star struck+none of it was captured.But i cannot fault the photographers they are great+very patient :thumbsup2.
Has your DW had an Ultimate from BB? If not she should really go+try one :worship: .x.

Another great day Michelle :) I'm loving this report, in fact I only logged on tonight in the hope you had a new instalment :)

Sounds like another great day - although you forgot the parade?! shame on you :rotfl2:

The pic of Emily asleep at the table is so cute!

As much as I love your report Michelle, there is one major problem - every night your food sounds amazing but there are no pics!!! :lmao:

Thanks Bev,Emily was so tired,she was like this most nights-thats why we never ended up doing any evenings/fireworks at the parks as she just could'nt handle it.Hopefully if we get to go back in 2011,she will be 6 then-so may be able to last longer :wizard:.x.

What a fantastic day ~ Animal Kingdom is my favourite park.

I like the sound of Bahama Breeze ~ even though we stay off-site we tend to eat more in the parks than not, so this trip I am determined to try some new off-site places.

Great photos again Michelle looks like another great day had by you all. I love Animal Kingdom and am another one who gets goosebumps and emotional in FOTLK I love it. Great Safari pics especially the giraffe looks like he's right next to you.
